Original Artwork

Adriana Rinaldi

In my recent artwork, I have been taking a closer, more intimate look at nature.  I am drawn to the quiet, meditative aspects of the natural world. I am fascinated by the shapes of plants, leaves, pods, branches and twigs and the play of light and shade on their surfaces. These patterns generate visual rhythm and meditative interest for me. Reflections and shadows give me a chance to stop and observe complex patterns in nature. This complexity can increase the meditative state by holding one’s attention and focus longer. My paintings investigate the different levels of reality we can observe in the natural world. My botanical paintings are a celebration of life and the simple beauties of the everyday.
 
Adriana Rinaldi had been painting for years with burning internal need to do so. She found success through sales, juried shows and magazine articles, but secretly, never felt quite fully satisfied until she finally discovered traditional glaze oil painting; after the relentless searching, this was when she knew that she had found her art home that would allow her the latitude of expression she so intently was looking for. The traditional, beautiful and ancient technique was so steeped in depth and subtleties. The processes spoke to her meditative and methodical nature and facilitated a burst of exploration into the amazing and beautiful things that had always fascinated her. It gave her the confidence and passion to launch boldly into a joy-filled flow – it unjammed a backlog waiting for expression and her natural artistic direction.
