Samurai | Lara Martinato

Played out in perfect equilibrium between tradition and the avant-garde, Lara Martinato’s work explores the search for spirituality through the figure of the Samurai, the emperor’s warrior dedicated to sacrifice and to death.
Preparing the canvas with chalk and clay, the artist obtains a rough and irregular surface on which the oil and the gold leaf create iridescent effects of light, while the figures – warriors and warrioresses – appear uncertain, ghostly, as if the eye is able to take them in only for an instant before they disappear.
