Valeria Ferrero’s artistic research is moving from a phase of strong testing and research, to the definition of a more outlined and unique course, based on the representation of both figurative and abstract elements. On the one hand there is the desire to seek the perfection of form, through the golden ratio and curved lines, on the other hand there is a strong fascination with human figure, stripped in daily attitudes. The search for harmony and beauty is what most distinguishes the art of this young artist, who tries to create continuous emotional suspensions, looking for an ecstatic and emotional sense.
