"Varda Carmeli: Homage to Rosalda"
2002-09-20 until 2002-09-30
Museum Gilardi, Forte Dei Marmi
Lucca, , IT Italy

Museum Gilardi is organizing Varda Carmelie's: Homage to Rosalda, an exhibition dedicated to Rosalda Gilardi Bernocco. Rosalda, a well-known artist, was the owner of Spazio Gilardi, the moving spirit and the creator of the place and the museum. Varda Carmeli deals in her Mixed media works with birth and death through disclosing fragments of ancient cultures, renewing them and thus creating a new world. This influence was born out of observation of geological and archeological features in different locations around the world where she travelled and spent several years in various exotic countries - which for her were magical.

The intensity of her experiences created a synthesis which led to internal observation and process of creation. The spectrum and choice of Varda's colors is influenced by the materials and the ways they change over time: erosion,  rust , etc. The visible result is a spirituality within the material - an amorphic, cracked, primordial foundation, architecture of space light and motion.

Varda's works express her ambivalent relationship to reality: on one hand, within a mixture of thoughts, logic and rationale, she divides the work's format into defined geometric plans, angles, and bracketed frames. On the other hand, she has created the content of these spaces with unrestrained energy and sensitivity, which flows in her creations with definite spontaneity.

Throughout the creative process, she starts and finishes without prior planning, without preliminary sketches. Layers and layers of color create a wonderful game of hiding and discovery, covering and exposuring, gluing and peeling .

For Varda, there are many possibilities involved in the creation of a work of art, the colors' particles and the mixing of additional materials are endless. As if using a magical wand, she pulls apart and puts together the pieces into small details, the variations are infinite. The surprising result revealed at the end of her work thrills her.

Varda relates to life in a similar fashion. She does not take anything for granted; she believes that everyone must act, to dare, and to contend with challenges whether they be big or small, at times to be surprised at the act of contention itself.

Art  makes a bond  between people, countries and times. The equality of the names (Varda in Hebrew is equal to Rosalda) and her Mixed media artworks are making  the connection to Rosalda's art.
