I work to create paintings that express my perceptions of organic forms, material objects, and the spaces between them. To do this I develop meditative techniques that enhance my awareness of nature and objects around me. I visually interpret this contemplation abstractly with traditional indirect painting techniques such as varnishing and glazing. This slow painting process allows me to accumulate layers of tone and color to create an atmosphere for each painting. I add shapes, lines and patterns to represent the fundamental complexities of interactions between nature, objects and people. The compositions that result invite viewers to engage in their own meditative contemplations.
"In the abstract work of Roberta Tucci active gestural lines and fluid movements suggest life's force and the artist's hand at work".
