The Artist in front of Lake Como observes the shifting light, which is reflected on the water changing its color. The lake is so fickle; the sky is so variable; the landscape is so unstable that the eye struggles – sometimes – to fix the magical moment in which these fragments become emotion and beauty. This is the Lario.
The Artist captures the moment and marks it on a sheet, on canvas, on fabric. Today even on silk.
The blowing air and the moving water inspire the Artist’s sensibility to bring the beauty of nature on an equally light, wavy, impalpable fabric: silk. It knows how to give back the freshness of colors, the liveliness of lines, the mutability of frames that seem to move as in reality. To transform the painting “in motion” becomes an indispensable need that finds in the foulard the logical path of an intuition that combines beauty and tradition, reality and fantasy.
The Artist Ester Maria Negretti uses colors taken from the environment – stones, sand, dirt, leaves … – because she wants to recreate with natural materials a lively expression that becomes contemporary Art to be worn as an elegant accessory – suitable for any occasion – or even to be framed as a painting, to keep alive the memory of a journey and the unforgettable Lario.
Lake Sensation is an exclusive collection of foulards made in silk, a precious fabric of the great Como tradition, which caress the silhouette, and fit like an Artwork. Each piece has been printed with modern techniques to ensure the absolute fidelity of colors; its hem has been finished by expert hands which fold the edge, sewing it with regular and invisible stitches. These marvels are proposed as an exclusive project in a package personally signed by the Artist.
This artwork will be your alluring travel companion.
SILK ON THE SEA
Within a rigorous madness, ironic and irreverent signs and colors find harmony on prints that invite to smile. Hand-fringed garments with a gritty taste.
The intense light of the sea and the energy of sailing regattas are impressed by the artist on canvas. Above colors, a multitude of layered materials are the basis of Negretti’s artworks, identifying her art even in silk reproduction: a magical flow in transformation. Blue and its variations are the last conquest on the path of Ester Maria Negretti. Its deep tones enrich the palette of emotions with a new experimentation into her artistic “sailing” journey. The sea is seen as blue water, but also as the energy of nature, the wind, scent of salt, sounds and silences, movement, laughter, a thousand colors, lights and perfumes. Sensations painted with light and color, with sand strokes on canvas and tears of advertising posters. Artworks that tell, through primary colors, about happy moments and that play also with the symbol of freedom that sailing boats represent. Paintings that invite you to “enter” the canvas itself, to navigate and discover. Even on silk, it releases the energy of a sailing regatta, almost like a call to dive and explore the vastness of the sea. And that is how the invitation turns into reality… a wearable masterpiece!
The collection is a limited edition of 100 pieces; it has been made with an accurate printing technique in the city of Como, Italy. Each maxi stole has been printed on modal/silk fabric, and is available in the following measures: 140×140, 140×180 and 140×200 cm.
