Artwork information "It's Going to Rain (Sta per piovere)"

"Is going to rain" is part of the new series of artworks especially created  by the italian artist Sofia Battisti for Wealth-of-Art

For this series the artist has been inspired by the woodblock ukiyo-e Japanese prints.  Battisti is using bright bold colours, collage of paper and Japanese newspapers to create this new body of work.  The shape of the artworks are ovals and tondi.

Sofia Battisti  artworks symbolise isolation in modern society and the complex relationships between individuals created by the technological world.  The artist transforms the nature in her artworks to an allegorical landscape depicted with bright, pastel colours. In her work Sofia attempts to accommodate complex realities, which reflect contemporary society.  A recurrent thematic in her paintings are the ideologies of justice, equality and freedom which are translated into trees, water and animals in her artworks.

The main characters in her paintings are often represented by a black colour, which makes them stand out of from the vivid background.  They symbolise the connection between mankind and the machine that is society.  Sofia’s artworks are vehicles for the creation of new subjects for the humanity and a visual representation of the contrast between modern society and human existence.
