Alba2 Rossini - OZLAND's Visiting Artist for June 2009

June's exhibition features paintings based on the motifs found in Tarot Cards by Alba2 Rossini. The originals are painted in oil on board. At present there are 14 paintings in the series, the latest being completed just before the exhibition.

Here is what Alba has to say about herself.

Hello, in SL I am known as Alba2 Rossini, Alba is my name in the art world. I live and work in Turin, where I completed my studies at the Art School and the Academy of Fine Arts.

I spent part of my life between the United States and Venezuela. During my stay in Venezuela, I worked as a designer in the graphic and advertising department of a large North American company. This experience along the tropical environment influenced lot about my vision of color and composition and were significant in my artistic maturation.

I paint mostly with oil colors because I like the stickiness and brightness of this medium, so that I can play with brightness and volume, but I do not disdain other media such as acrylic or pastels

Alba has provided two wonderful sets of clothing (one for the ladies and one for the gentlemen) featuring details from her wonderful artwork.

Please take the opportunity to see these wonderful art works at the OZLAND SW Gallery
