I paint images that express how I perceive organic forms and the world of nature. To do this I develop personal meditative practices that enhance my awareness of nature: both particular details and living systems. I visually interpret this abstract awareness by using traditional indirect painting techniques. These techniques involve layering with varnish and glazing. This slow painting process allows me to accumulate ethereal levels of tone and color on which to create unique images. I then introduce and develop shapes, lines and patterns that represent the complexities of my natural subjects. The compositions that result invite viewers to perceive, connect and engage in a way that encourages their own with meditative contemplation.
"In the abstract work of Roberta Tucci active gestural lines and fluid movements suggest life's force and the artist's hand at work".
