Feofeo, was born in Alessandria in 1969.
Her way to art does not follow any academic route, but she proved to be looking for symbols to communicate with the soul.
From quantic study along with some theories about the use of colours by Goethe and later by Steiner helped to reach new representations of primitive archetypes, cinetic lines of radiant energy and golden spirals.
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.
Since 2011 some of her works have been exhibited in museums and galleries in all Italy as well as abroad in the city of Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Bratislava, Buenos Aires at the “Honorable Camara de Senadores”, Los Angeles, Lugano, Montecarlo, Obernberg, Oslo, Saint Petersburg, Stokolm and Tallinn and in art fairs of Miami, New York and Paris.
In the year 2016, her first monograph “i am colour” signed by Giovanni Faccenda, art critic and historian and TV presenter, is published by the Editoriale Giorgio Mondadori. The monograph includes 170 works and it displays them according to a metaphorical 3 – part division as for Feofeo Monography, i.e. Enlightenment, Beyond and The great Opera.
In 2017, begins the acquisitions by major banking groups (Banca di Asti, the BNL – BNP Paribas Italy and with FinecoBank).
The last cycle of new artworks painted between the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, revolves around a wording that explains studies and explanations that have not yet found a unique decoding: ET IN ARCADIA EGO.
The new cycle focused on the esoteric theme that, with respect to the past, it enters more and more inside its canvases enriching itself with arcane essences belonging to the Priory of Sion, to the Templars up to the theses of the philosopher René Guénon that enhances her painting even more.
An inscription that, enclosing hermetic foundations hidden for thousands of years to human explanation, distinguishes the works of this period through a branding for single letters, without resorting to a pre-established format: a title that starts a creative process full of mystery.
The artworks by Feofeo are both in Italy and abroad as part of public and private collections and her quotations on the market are published in the “Catalogue of Modern Italian Art” where Feofeo’s name is included into the “IS” category for her national and international recognition by some well-known criticism.
