Valentina Sorrentino (1986)

My roots reflect sounds and colors from various regions of Central and Southern Italy.

I graduated from medical school in Rome, then I moved to Catania in Sicily, where I specialized in Neuropsychiatry of Childhood and Adolescence.

I approached art by working on the theatrical method of the physical actions by E. Barba and J. Grotowski.

I studied painting and oil painting techniques with the painter Giorgia Marzi in Rome, where I had the pleasure of meeting the artist Gianpaolo Berto, who invited me to exhibit in the group show "Io sono Frida" (“I am Frida”) at the Spazio 40 gallery.

In 2019 the artistic direction of the Severino Gazzelloni International Festival invited me to exhibit my works during the XXV edition.

In January 2020 I presented my solo show "meLady", curated by Aurelia Nicolosi, at the KōArt Gallery, in Catania (Sicily).

My artistic production stems from the desire to immortalize and merge the multiple personalities of beauty, which I appreciate in all its figurative, musical and literary features.

The female figure represents the main character in my production, my woman becomes the "narrative voice" of the story; she is an alter ego in which, despite her inscrutable physiognomy, multiple identities re-emerge in a game of fictions and projections with the viewer.

My women move on the thread of time to scrutinize the past and relive the moments from which history, mythology, literature and opera originated. Sensory mirages passing through time, dreams and the Mediterranean sea.
