Patrizia Saccoman was born in magical Venice in 1963, where her passion for art was immediately evident, thanks to her grandfather Candido Attilio Saccoman, an important art collector. She moves to Pescara, where she continues to cultivate her passion for art. Today collaborates with the world of interior design, as well as in the design of outdoor spaces and sculptures and with various galleries in Rome and Venice. She follows her creativity without conditions and boundaries, fishing in the soul, in a constantly evolving research, experimenting with different techniques. In her paintings, dreams and memory predominate, in a vibrant world, full of colors in evolution, parallel and suspended, just like it happens in dreams.
Wilma Petrucci was born in Penne in 1947. She is living between Bologna and Penne. She attended the School of Art in Penne, the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, the Academy of Fine Arts in Ravenna and the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, developing a training and experimentation path in the art of painting and engraving. The passion for art has always accompanied his search to represent reality in the freedom of the shapes and colors of the fantasy guided by his own feelings.
Breve biografia tratta da: Donato di Zio nel diario di un percorso tra arte e professione. Di Annamaria Cirillo Di Paolo.
Donato Di Zio, nato nel 1970 a Moscufo (Pescara), trae molteplici matrici di formazione artistica già dai suoi primi studi al Liceo Artistico di Pescara. Il primario interesse per l’arte, come pure la salda dedizione allo studio ed a quel metodo di apprendimento elaborato “nell’andare fino in fondo all’essenza delle cose” si manifesta già nelle prime opere, dove si evidenzia il distacco da un linguaggio prettamente accademico. All’amore per la pittura e la calcografia, affianca anche quello per il collezionismo d’arte. Nel 1997 espone alcune sue opere, frutto di una ricerca particolarmente interiorizzata, in una mostra personale dall’esplicito titolo Ricerca della spiritualità. Tra le opere esposte Presagio, Jesus e Pensiero in attesa, sono state oggetto di un lusinghiero apprezzamento da parte di Gillo Dorfles in una lettera inviata all’artista nel 2003. Successivamente Dorfles è stato curatore di diverse pubblicazioni e mostre di Donato Di Zio. Ricordiamone alcune: Pescara, Museo D’arte Moderna Vittoria Colonna (15 febbraio– 2 marzo 2006) Pescara, Aurum (6 febbraio – 27 marzo 2011) Firenze, Palazzo Strozzi Spazio Agora Z (8 aprile – 15 maggio 2011) Comune di Moscufo, (Pe) sala consiliare (12,13,14 agosto 2011) Firenze, Biblioteca Marucelliana (15 settembre – 15 dicembre 2012) Milano, Biblioteca Sormani (27 settembre – 20 ottobre 2012) Firenze, Palazzo Medici Riccardi – Biblioteca Riccardiana (24 ottobre 2013 – 10 gennaio 2014) Firenze, Museo Casa di Dante (26 febbraio 2016 – 30 settembre 2016)
Patrizia D'Addazio, a goldsmith artist, trained in the Metals and Goldsmith section at the Penne Art Institute, and today has made her passion in her profession. From a very young age, she is noted for her creations and embossed and chiseled works, receiving awards for the creation of jewels whose originality is characterized by daring combinations between the preciousness of gold and the millenary strength of olive wood. Able to renew the goldsmith tradition by stealing lines and harmonies from nature, it creates unique pieces and amulets with a strong emotional and timeless impact. 4 elements The idea was to bring the concept of the 4 elements of nature back into 4 distinct rings of a common material matrix that recall the essence of the individual elements. Transmitting the vibrant lightness of the air, the bright heat of the fire, the solid inertia of the earth and the fluid dynamism of the water was the great challenge of this work. Research, study of materials and gems were the companions of this new and exciting creative journey.
My interest in nature and the landscape forms the inspiration for my paintings. In particular, the fleeting impressions and observations from the car, train or plane, as well as my sketches and photographs can lead to a picture. My daily walks through beautiful Emsland often inspire me to put paint to canvas whereby the exact interpretation of the landscape sometimes disappears during the process. I remain fascinated by the possibility of ending up in a completely different imaginary destination whilst working on a painting. I want to show the essence and the ‘layers’ of a landscape and to ask myself why it is as it is, what may have happened there, or whether this particular landscape is doomed to disappear…I like to leave some abstraction in these processes. So that everyone can create a story of their own.
