For Nunzia Busi, art is a way to “bring forth” the emotions, and the act of making art is sheer pleasure – as is, it must be said, her audience’s experience of viewing the results. Using acrylic paints and glazes on canvas, she creates colorful, imaginative paintings that vividly communicate her moods. In those paintings, she employs a wide range of styles, from drips to wide swaths of color to freehand sketches. With a palette that animates a range of subtle tones with intense bursts of color, she infuses her works with depth, space and movement. There is also a well-developed sense of texture, lending each painting an energy that seems to extend past the edges of the canvas.
Her images also balance the freedom of abstract forms with a classical sense of balance, forming a seamless, unified world that bridges abstraction and representation. The open-endedness she gives to a swirl of paint can also be seen in her rendering of a flower or a human face. While the artist says she is “convinced that art will save the world,” her works form a world that will live on through that unity and coherence.
