Art De Lux
We met Lucia De Carolis, a girl from Posta (RI) who, thanks to her courage and creativity, has devised and created a project that involves the use of various materials in order to produce unique works with a touch of originality. Through continuous studies and meticulous research, she creates paintings, sculptures and jewels.
"Talk about you, about your job...”
“My passion for art began when I was a child, the curiosity towards the natural world lead me to study its mechanisms by discovering its perfection little by little and by drawing inspiration to achieve something, often very distant in forms but in line with that complex and perfect mechanism that only nature can propose.”
"What inspires you in your works?"
I cannot deny that the afternoons spent in drawing and studying the movement of plants have been facilitated by my origins: I was born in Norcia and grew up in Civita di Cascia. Over the years I have been experimenting with various materials and I can say that each of them has certainly allowed me to approach very different techniques but above all to communicate the many sensations arising during the working process. Nowadays when people come to my shop - which I managed to inaugurate at a particular moment like the one immediately following the earthquake that struck my land - I propose them above all paintings, sculptures and jewels. Its creation is always followeb by a practice of study and research that often allows me to make them by using unusual materials for the final object.
"What are your greatest satisfactions and difficulties so far?"
The satisfaction of having been selected to participate in My Christmas Venice in December 2016 and the possibility to open my shop in Posta in the same year, despite that particular period, I believe are the result of all the tenacity used to continue the passion for art, which has always gone at the same speed with commitment and sacrifice; I spent the nights at painting because during the day I was working in the fields or in a restaurant in the area for a while trying to earn the money with which I bought the equipment. My artistic growth is a synthesis of moments of distaste mixed with moments of great emotional charge driven by the desire that living on art - this is my dream - is possible despite the innumerable efforts resulting from it. It is when abnegation turns into satisfaction that you find the push to move on and continue to create.
