About the Artist

In Memoriam 

On January 24, 2017 the art community lost a wonderful human being, friend and artist, Anna Maria Giordano. Anna passed on after a very long and brave battle with Lymphoma.

She was and still is a dear friend and member of Art & Beyond Publications and her artwork will continue to grace the pages of our Online Magazine. It has been a great pleasure to have had the opportunity to publish her latest work entered right before her unfortunate and untimely passing. The Art World has lost a wonderful artist but her spirit lives on through her work which we will continue to enjoy for many years to come.

Those who wrote about her: Stefania Bison, Patrizia Cocchi, Giampiero Finocchiaro, Manlio Gaddi, Paolo Levi, Monia Malinpensa, Heinz Playner, Rosario Pinto, Salvatore Russo, Sandro Serradifalco, Jean Charles Spina, Ruthie Tucker, Josè Van Roy Dalì. Manlio Gaddi, September 2016. You can see in the varied artworks by Anna Maria Giordano the research into an ultimate end of painting: to transform every kind of experience, from the dream to the everyday life, from the microscope to the stars vision, from realism to abstraction, in a continual pursuit of quality and in the foundation of a new expressive language. Each work reveals an accomplished harmony, and one senses the preparatory part, such as the choice of the medium, on which she will impress pigments, sometimes very earthy, securing the light to be turned into life energy; or as a hardworking choice between dozens of drawings and/or anyway images, to retrace a spiritual path of classical architecture. The result is a pattern of the image with a central perspective into deep space projecting plans, through the firm path of diagonal lines, re-edited the “divina proportione” of the golden section of the Grand Masters. You understand a follow-up, marked through time, as a moment of pure reflection: a formal control of the balance between space, light and image through the scrupulous examination of the ended work at the mirror, subject to the introspective “labor limae”. Real root of rigor and memory, that, enhancing severity and discipline, even more vivifies the sight of the harmony of these works. Her works deliver the legacy of the past to the evocative power of the present. Intense brushstrokes, the result of chromatic passages thinning down, but equally sweet and tireless, they own the space: the incommensurable, between the real and the metaphysical, which the peaceful introspective proceeding by the artist gives to painting of timeless high poetic value, between evocative spirituality and thematic inspiration. Anna Giordano shows us the reality of the unreal: everything is illusion. Even life. On a sort of instinctive expressionism, supplemented by cubist and futurist depictions, Anna Giordano elaborates an image basic structure of high dynamism and immediate visual impact, deliberately without excessive erudite references. From it, the artist moves his tries in an abstract area, in the surrealist and dadaist field with certain unpredictable and playful combinations of shapes and heterogeneous materials. Altogether in her works one can recognize that substantial component of eclecticism that is the basis of the production of Anna Giordano images. A component that, paradoxically, we could consider as homogenizing all her activity.
