Backround


Indifferent to fashions and definitions, in life as well as in her work, Silvana Pintozzi is a
nomad who lives between two countries – Italy, her country of birth from where she
draws her creative force and France, her adopted home that frames and rationalises this
force. She has pursued various professions in literature as well as in the plastic and
visual arts, the unchanging thread being the desire to image life. Her art work bears
witness to a constant oscillation between evocation and trompe l’oeil, empty and full,
light and shade, spoken and unspoken, until the subject emerges from its substrate, as if
astonished by its own existence.
Has exhibited in Avignon, Marseille, Uzès and in Tuscany
