Roberta ianne was born in 1968, in Carmiano, Italy.
On completion of her studies at her local arts college, she embarked on a learning path, exploring different techniques in the world of figurative art, finally settling for a genre of painting resembling high-resolution photography – hyperrealism.
Roberta lanne‘s artwork stands out for its full-bodied subject matter.
Her harmonious compositions are deeply rooted in their Mediterranean origins and enriched by the local historical stratification. It feels as if the painter is trying to tell us that although the deep meaning of things is ruled by the passing of Time and History, humans can influence it and even modify its inner nature; things can be preserved and frozen in time through art.
The dark background that characterizes most of her works is there to direct the focus of the viewer on the main theme, which has been frozen in time by the artist’s patient brush strokes.
Roberta’s hyper-realistic style is elaborate and intimate, yet silky and smooth to the eye of the beholder.
