A collaboration between diplomat and artist Beatrice Covassi and curator Vittoria Beltrame is bringing to fruition the exhibition ‘Beatrice Covassi: A European Journey,’ for which all proceeds will be donated to aid the Ukrainian refugees crisis.
As a representative of the European Union, Beatrice Covassi has lived and worked in many countries around the world, producing art as she goes. She has exhibited around the world in places such as Belgium, Turkey, Italy, Spain and America and her works can now be found in private collections worldwide. In her works, Covassi focuses on the prime material — technique successfully used by Italian artists of the Post-War period of the Arte Povera, which can be seen in Covassi’s use of materials such as cardboard. This is contrasted by Covassi’s use of rich media such as gold and powder pigments. This gives life to vibrant colours that highlight her Italian roots and influences, where old masters such as Titian also made use of important tints (e.g. red and blue). The strong reds and blues are nevertheless then balanced by the breeziness and freedom of the abstract forms, leaving the audience with an impactful range of emotions to embrace
