Reviews of Marine Paintings
What follow are some reviews of Roberta Tresoldi's works:
Federica Murgia (Galleria Mentana – PERSONAL EXHIBITION on April 9, 2016 - Florence)
The improvisations and condensations of time and space are in the works of Roberta Tresoldi: an artist who, observing what is surrounding her, projects it inward to transform it into poetic tales with shades and signs revealing her own self. In her paintings you can detect her love for nature, which moves her to conjure up pantheistic views as profound insights on consumerist society.
Time seems to stop in the pulse of her tones, in the alternating effects, consonance and memories which become, for the artist, landscapes alive with descriptions and colours investing all things and reflecting the gardens of the soul and the captivating nebulae of dreams. Narrative elements take shape and make you perceive the transmutation of matter and the metaphor for idyllic memories, in harmonious impressions established with elusive strokes, leaving almost evolving signs. Here we find the artist and her universe of lace work, intricacy and colours, following her brush strokes drawing feelings and ideas. Spirit voices are floating within the colours of posidonias, anemones and coral, often pulled from deep lush backdrops.
The swaying of vibrant attinias, telling of hidden dangers through dark colour contrast, create fluttering tonal symphonies. Dark shades intensify the deep reds toning down, the spiritual violets lighting up into yellow and fading into a thousand blues turning into life-hopeful greens. The infinite azure blends with turquoise waters shimmering with a thousand bubbles, opening up to a journey into the shadows.
A tonal path builds the breeze that carries the scent of flowers or the splashing of waves rippling the sea, towards soothing melancholy or stormy turbulence. Light penetrates echoing amidst the greenery, flooding it with thousand shades and creating bright spells in the foreground, turning dark in the deep ravines. Cliffs brighten up in frothing storms, whirling in the sea gardens where multi-coloured gorgonias reach up towards a ray of life. Colours blissfully sing along the waves of meadows and arboreal tangles, or find home deep in the sea bed, in the woods and in vibrant bushes, all turning into harmonious chords where home is found for the nebulae of Roberta Tresoldi's pictorial universe.
Giovanna Laura Andreani: (Art Director Galleria Mentana)
I have carefully viewed her work of art and poetry and found it captivating.
Her works are extremely intriguing and possess a special light that engages the viewer. Hardly ever can one see such a vibrant palette of colours, making her paintings at once real and fantastic.

I am speaking as an art historian and journalist contributing to Galleria Mentana.
Ms. Laura Andreani has shown me her works slated for a personal exhibition on April 9 at the mentana Gallery.
I take the opportunity to congratulate her on the utterly original expressive range and the remarkable chromatic sense in her paintings.
