Participation in the "San Valentino Arte 2017" international art competition
2nd classified in the painting section with the works "Lithuanian_girl" and "Polish_girl"
The motivations of the jury (formed by the artist Ugo Antinori, the historian of culture Domenico Cialfi, the art critic Paolo Cicchini, the art historian Marco Grilli and the photographer Enrico Valentini)
"Second classified Laura Correggioli for" An interesting conceptual pictorial project, connected to the latest mass media is brought back into a formal rigor that highlights elegance and mastery of an advanced pictorial technique ". "

One of my latest projects involves the creation of portraits of women with whom I get in touch via social media. The aim is to create contemporary portraits through a classical technique such as oil painting. The reproduction of a selfie disconnected from its words and from the original context, wants to explore how we build our identity and the sense of the self in the digital era. Art as a real social, or social media that become art. The rebuilt image thus acquires a new meaning, moving from the online status of of a post to the offline one of tangible pictorial object, to then be published again and shared in the digital world as a picture of a painting.

Materials used:
