Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco’s artistic practice revolves around observation. Her still lifes are inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, Paul Cézanne and in particular, Giorgio Morandi. Through these artists, Del Turco learned how this overlooked genre of painting has the ability to speak about the human condition and investigate the world that surrounds us. What makes Del Turco stand out in the modern art world, however, is her own amalgamation of still life. Her work bears a subtlety and timelessness in depicting simple subjects yet Del Turco goes a step further by integrating sentiments and subject matter from modern life.
