Sabrina Milazzo’s paintings are inspired by a common imagery, as she chooses Walt Disney’s characters as the protagonists of her canvases. Easily recognizable thanks to the sharp brushstrokes and pastel nuances, the puppets appear to us, however, not with their usual appearance, concluded and detailed, but as if they were in the middle of a process of transformation and dissolution. What Sabrina Milazzo conveys to us through her interpretation of the Disney universe is the end of the enchantment, the illusions that all of us as children had created by looking at these characters and their happy endings. The knowledge, as adults, that most of our childhood dreams would remain such, and that they would never come true. The artist therefore does not appear as the author of this destruction but rather as a witness to this inevitable process.
