Anita Lanzetta

Statement

Anita explores a wide range of art disciplines. Her artistic roots are based in the fashion
industry which continues to influence her use of textiles and mixed media. During her time at UWE she has focused on the practice of painting, with influences from Renaissance, Baroque and Abstract Expressionist art.
Anita explores the inner shapes of the human being and its perception of feelings:
She is interested in identity, sexuality, self consciousness and awareness, and the way us
humans deal with our personalities and egos.
The representations of these human features is indicated in her use of colours, exploring the
relationships of specific colours when placed next to others. Anita also uses patterns and shapes that translate feelings and emotions, creating a connection between the colours she uses and how we respond to the flow they create.

Featured Projects:

Aphrodite Accovacciata

Mixed media on canvas. Inspired by the sculpture of Aphrodite belonging to the Farnese Collection at the Archaeological museum of Naples, this representation of the greek Goddess explores her figure and meaning in history through the use of colours that contrast the art of her time.

Virgin with Child

Acrylic on paper. This painting is inspired by the way women, and especially breastfeeding Madonnas, have been objectified in the history of art. The connection between the figures represented and the background surrounding them underlines the emotions that fulfil the relationship between a mother and her child.

Judith with Holopherne's head

Mixed media on canvas. The work represents the heroin Judith holding Holopherne's head with glory and pride. Contrary to some of the ways in which she was represented in history, here Judith is fierce and empowered and shows her success in killing her enemy with the justice it deserves.

Getting to know me

Acrylic on Canvas. A representation of my own body and the way I perceive it.

Venus with POP

Mixed media on canvas. The two canvases were painted at different times and not as an overall painting. Only when the top was completed I felt the need to give Venus legs. The factory-like Pop Art colours aim to contrast the delicacy of the figure and its original representation.

Susanna and those bastard Elders

Digital Illustration. Inspired by Guido Reni's composition of the scene.
