This body of work is a debut collection of pastels for artist Maria Grazia Facciola’. These works represent an extension of her passion for portraiture from the realistic into the subjective realm.
Her point of departure was one of Modigliani’s long-necked women, but inevitably from Maria Grazia’s feminine perspective. Through pastels, Maria Grazia explores the subjects as if each could represent aspects of every woman. Combinations of vibrant color infuse a quintessentially Italian aesthetic.
