WORK THEMES

Jeannette G. Moretti believes that her first two series – Abstracts and Spirals- portrait the search for inner knowledge, the connection with the Universe, continuous growth, constant transformation, infinity, an instant that does not repeat itself. All of that represents a constant confrontation between the light and the shadow of the human being.
Her work invites to continue the search for perfection, balance and acceptance, highlighting the fact that we are all perfect even with our flaws.
Currently, the artist is inclined towards Pop Art, bringing from the past those characters that have been admired by different generations, combining the same in spite of their individual nature.


TECHNIQUE

The artistic technique used in the first series – Abstracts and Spirals- was based on the use of enamel/lacquer painting on canvas, with the aid of thinner to dissolve and achieve a mix of colors able to express a feeling of fluidity.
After exploring with different materials, Moretti moves into Pop Art as style and the search for other materials leads her to place digital images on MDF boards and/or canvas, performing art intervention on the same with the use of acrylic and varnishing in order to protect the pieces.
