The work of Beatrice Pediconi is charged with mystery and amazement, and the gesture she performs is no less capable of generation than attuned to capturing and accepting the unexpected: advance and retreat, action and perception. Her work bears witness to the possibility of another form of painting: painting that “mutates” not on the canvas, but in water, and with results that the artist can only partly control.
From the cycle of “Subtle Bodies,” texts written in ink of 2006, to the blue series of “Untitled” works of 2009, in which the artist made use of plaster and powders, and then to the “Red” works of 2011, where she carried out experiments with various organic materials, the artist’s encounter with the element of water—her immersion in the element of water—has continued to develop and grow ever more fertile.
