BIOGRAPHY

emanuela_franchin

She was selected to be a part of the artists associated with the Milan “La Permanente” Museum from 2018 onwards.

In the international sphere, she has been invited: in Berlin at the “Night of the Stars 2020” review and event in the frame of the Berlin International Film Festival, at the Van Der Plas Gallery in Manhattan New York, at EXPO 2020 Dubai – Abu Dhabi. In 2019 he is among the seventy-one artists selected, to prepare two works for in the exhibition  “Pace e Amore Italian Selection for Expo 2020 Dubai – Abu Dhabi”. The artist was chosen for her unique ability in abstract expressionist painting to unite technical aspects to a particular sensitivity from a chromatic point of view, which permits the communication of themes and states of mind to a public from all nations.

In 2021 the artist was selected, two paintings entered the Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art “ARTinGENIO MUSEUM”, inaugurated on 10 June 2021 by Vittorio Sgarbi, at the prestigious headquarters of the “Officine Garibaldi” in Pisa.

Currently the artist composes her works by choosing almost  only square formats, the symbolic space of her art which is devoted to an informal abstraction where she scans the soul and recounts emotions, which are amplified through a rich colour range inspired by the colours and luminosity of precious stones.

Great harmony and a sense of calm pervade all her compositions, from which there transpire what the artist defines as “emotional vibrations”. At times the paint is tactile and at others, in sharp contrast, is softened as a result of a “tonal system” that, accepting the heritage of Venetian painting, reinvents it with the use of stratified fields and veils that, according to the light, are transformed into infinite tonalities. These forms, visually powerful and evanescent at the same time, appear in her paintings thanks to a great technical ability and seem able to modify themselves and then vanish in a moment, like the passing of existence, like palpitations in silence.

A journey that the spectator himself can travel, through matter and chromatic transparencies, he can enter the canvas, into history, interpret and reread his own life in the sign of color, until he discovers the codes of the soul.

Her story

Emanuela Franchin both has her studio and lives in Riviera del Brenta, in the province of Venice.

She trained at the painting and sculpture courses of Maurizio Piovan and then, in Rome from 2009 to 2012, she specialised in stratigraphic palette knife technique with the artist Mario Salvo.

Her artistic career began in 2002 with minimalist figurative works devoted to the world of nature: large heads of flowers portrayed with a multi-material  technique that resulted in intense and poetic delicacy. In 2004 and 2005 his first solo exhibitions, one of his painting enters the Public Collection of Cultural Heritage of the  Monselice city (Padova).

Her specialisation in palette knife technique opened new horizons to her, from representations of still-life and landscape, with an expressionist style overflowing with intense and vital colours, to abstract expressionist painting that the artist experienced with enthusiasm, spreading out the color, moulding, modelling, by removing and adding, and incising the material in search of “panoramas of the soul”.

In 2010, on the invitation of Giulia Sillato, she became part of the “Metaformismo” movement and in the following years she was dotted with many shows in Italy  in prestigious locations in Italy, including: Palazzo Ducale in Urbino, Chiostro Bramante in Rome, Mu.MA. Galata of Genoa, Palazzo dei Giureconsulti for EXPO 2015 Milan, Palazzo Zenobio in Venice, Palazzo Ducale in Massa, Complex of the Vittoriano Ala Brasini for the Triennale of Visual Arts in Rome, Villa Magnisi in Palermo, ARTinGENIO Museum at Officine Garibaldi in Pisa.

All this is confirmed by galleries and publishing houses that appreciate the originality and particularity of a painting of extraordinary workmanship and incredible lyrical sensitivity, born from the artist’s unstoppable desire to express himself.

Her paintings have been widely reproduced and published by, among others, Editoriale Giorgio Mondadori, Catalog Mazzotta, 24 ORE Cultura, and l’Editoriale De Agostini, Edizioni ARTinGENIO, annual Catalog of exhibitions of artists and members of the “Museo Permanente”.

The numerous invitations to the most important international events, such as universal exhibitions, the institutional locations that make theater to her research, confirm in her one of the most prestigious and poetic realities of a way to making art that combines soul and color in a universal language, always looking for the light and the next emotion.
