WHO I AM

 

 

Carmela Rizzuti is a multifaceted artist, she was born with a predisposition for drawing and painting and over the years, during the training course at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo, she embraced her passion also in the world of photography by enrolling in the Photo Conca d'Oro Club managed by the master and photographer Giuseppe Cilia. Two paths that apparently seem distinct and separate but in the end there is always a correlated search for visual effects between painting and photography where the artist creates a continuous connection. In painting, Carmela Rizzuti uses photographic technique and a mechanical reproduction of reality to build her hyper-realistic portraits by portraying people in attitudes of everyday life made technically with a brush with oil colors on smooth supports such as that of plexiglass with the aim of obtaining the most as close as possible to the effect of the card. Her works have an excellent response in the art world because they are exhibited in various galleries in Italy and abroad including the Am Roten Hof Gallery in Vienna and at the Palazzo della Permanente in Milan with publication in the magazine Arte by Giorgio Mondadori. But despite the various successes and awards the artist does not see a good economic response so he decides to devote himself entirely to photography, shots that are divided between black and white and color images, two different visions that are divided between the exaltation of the image of lights and shadows (black and white) and creative images where color plays a fundamental role in giving an almost pictorial and artistic rendering. In color photography, the artist uses the self-timer to represent her works using her relationship with nature and art as a recurring theme, creating the scenography and visual composition herself.
With these photographic works Carmela Rizzuti has participated in several Biennials both in Italy and abroad, including the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art, Barcelona) and the Pintér gallery in Budapest. In the year 2022 you participated in the collective exhibition Eternal Femininity which took place at the Palazzo Belmonte Riso Museum in Palermo, at the Artbox Expo in Venice at the same time as the Biennale and at the Swissartexpo art festival in Zurich held within the central railway station.
