Federica Oddone , alias Feofeo, was born in Alessandria in 1969.
Some quantic study along with some theories about the use of colours by Goethe and later by Steiner helped to reach new representations, some primitive archetypes, cinetic lines of radiant energy and golden spirals.
A lot of experts of the artistic field have figured out the relationship between her painting and some alchemic studies, a kind of connection on the visual as well as on the semantic level. Her emancipated art is a hymn to the moods expressed by those who paint and the beholder.
The artist, as a seductress of thoughts, allows the colours on the canvas to change as well as you change your feelings in a stylistic grammar where not following the rules is the fundamental attitude and letting the soul free go is the key verb.
The kind of artistic research she is going through is not aiming to reality or to what surrounds us. On the contrary, it goes deep in the soul , into the deepest and most unknown places of the conscience, namely opening up to endless possibilities of interpretation and perception.
What Feofeo is trying to transfer on the canvas is the strong desire to go deeper into the soul, to reach a far complex inner dimension, where everything can be repeated and occur endlessly, both in the microcosm and in the macrocosm, below, as well as above.
From 2011 she displayed some artworks in very important museums, galleries and prestigious locations in all Italy as well as abroad in Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Bratislava, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Lugano, Montecarlo, Obernberg, Oslo, Saint Petersburg, Stokolm and Tallinn and in art fairs of Miami, New York and Paris.
In December 2016 her first monography, titled “I am colour”, has been released and published, by Giorgio Mondadori Editors, along with a preface written by Professor Giovanni Faccenda.
Her quotations on the market are published in the Catalogue of Modern Italian Art” Nr. 51 – 52 – 53 – 54, where Feofeo’s name is included into the “IS” category for her international recognition by some well-known criticism.
