21 ottobre, Parigi, omicidio del prof. Samuel Paty; 29 ottobre, Nizza, attacco terroristico alla Cattedrale di Notrê Dame.

"Woman at the sea", è la solitudine di Marianne di fronte alla barbarie. I colori della bandiera francese si deformano. Il bianco, linea di di sabbia la terra si restringe sotto i piedi. I piedi nell'acqua, il cielo rosso delle vittime. La testa cerca di resistere, restando in un'aura d’oro. Linee di nuvole nel cielo, movimento veloce in questo tempo di Covid che sembra immobile.

    Elsa Egon

     

    Elsa Egon is a pseudonym. I grew up in Naples, Italy in 1981. After graduating in architecture, I've moved to France.

    Self-taught artist, I used to work with different materials and techniques. During Covid crises I've started to make portraits. These are oil on canvas painting.

    After a first solo exhibition in Naples in 2008, I was a finalist of the 2017 award 44 ideas for viadellafucina16 by a committee of scientists and also one of 40 finalist for the Art Prize CBM Premio Carlo Bonatto Minella Forme e materia dell’attesa, which led to an exhibition in Turin and then at Galerie Českých center, Prague in 2018. The online curator, Madja Edelstein-Gomez has selected my work for Les Recombinants Exposition International d’art that was presented for the first time at Art O Rama in 2017.I continue to present my art participating to calls for applications, exhibitions like Paratissima 15 Multiversity in Turin, Salon d’Automne in Paris, and ITSLIQUID International Art Fair 2020 in Venice. One of my latest works has been published in Artist Talk Magazine in Issue 14, Janvier 2021
