 “From the inconsciousness, reminiscence images, overlapping ideas, memories and truths about herself seem to emerge:  the canvas, saturated, becomes a mirror, a well of water where to overlook and to find herself…from the depths the painter Barbara Stamegna is able to interpret the matter in its true self and to illuminate at the same time her true self, with her eyes, reflecting herself, on the basis of stranger’s eyes, observing with curiosity.”

Dr. Filomena Stamegna


To Interpret the Matter in its True Self

“I know and I admire the art of our capable and prepared artist:  Barbara Stamegna…, an artist ready for the big jump in the tough world of contemporary art.  Her palette is rich and full of cultural values, her layout is all personal, the interest of national critics in her painting leads us to believe that she’s a painter capable to make the news with her art…In each painting you can note with pleasure the growth in interpretation of all her creations.  In each of her artworks you can see the extent of inspiration, blending the whole in an expressive fantasy.  Her paintings, permeated with far reaching cultural, ethical and human values, make universal the message of this fascinating and very valuable art.  My full approval, with the wish of great success in the art world.”

International Art Critic and member of the jury of the Venice Biennale

A Universal Message

Abstract image of an angel and a human being waiting for judgement

“Barbara Stamegna’s painting is made of sensations that are chain reaction generated, giving to any idea the sense of mystery, her style of informal matrix blossoms from the genuine world of her fantasy.  Her painting matrix finds expression in horizontal ways where the sensibility implies infinity issues, it’s an artistic language of great human value, that mirrors the essential condition of life.”

 Noblewoman Fernanda Banchi

President of the Italian Academy “Gli Etruschi”

An Artistic Language of Great Human Value

Multicolored abstract flowers and plants image in green, light green, purple, fuchsia, pink, blue, yellow, white and black, colors. Miniature painting realized with tempera colors on a small size yellow colored cardboard.

“With a malestrom of breakthrough and sinking of colours, Barbara drives us to the appearance of dualism up to the vision of her informal visited to the mirror of conscience.

Without ever loosing the reference to persons and things, the power of colour combined with the psycho-emotionality makes of her an interactive playful ability of ideograms, the decoding of which may be open to many interpretations…”

Prof. Alfredo Pasolino

International Art Critic

The Mirror of Conscience

Bright orange and red floating shapes

“An outburst of chromatisms, with excellent tones matching, inspire the artist with the formula of her creativity of memorial suggestions.

Barbara Stamegna loves to vibrate her gesture with energy and creative spark, pulping the colors to render them ductile and free to express on canvas.”
