Giulia Calvanese


Art is God’s gift, life, breath; a joyous search for the eternal which can never be fully grasped.
I cannot but perceive within my soul the Face of that Man who, two thousand years ago, changed history and still continues to change her with His message of merciful love.
In my mind’s eye, He appears a shining intuition impossible to recreate upon the finite media of paper and canvas with my human hands.
It seems, therefore, a search doomed right from the start; but, I assure you there is nothing that makes me more alive and loved than this ungraspable encounter with His face.
