Eliana Iurato’s paintings reflect a transcendental reality that motivates contemplation and exploration of the soul. Her paintings should be viewed in the context of our own perceptions and personal experiences, as the ultimate revelation of our human condition. Two essential components of her art are movement and color. She invites the viewer to follow a visual rhythm suggesting that nothing is still but only a continuous flow of energy, and she uses hues of colors often playing them at a high key or flowing into each other in order to excite the eye and to invite an emotional reaction. Her work intertwines the representational with the abstract, to evoke a feeling rather than depicting a defined image. The images we immediately recognize are only a suggestion to bring the viewer to explore them in a more intimate and personal manner, to stir the imagination and to give the emotions a way to be finally tangible.
