Piece description from the artist
I synthesize memories and observations with my photographs thereby permitting my paintings to become more than an enlarged version of the original snapshots. By this I mean that as the references I derive my interest from evolve, the paintings begin to exist as their own entities and are severed from their beginning origins. My paintings are personal statements and series of thoughts and moods through which I seek to connect with the spectator. My paintings are an invitation for the viewer to share in my life.
Rosalie Sidoti (Iacono), a visual artist of Contemporary Impressionism, paints figures and landscapes from personal chronicles and observations. The understated attitude of the figure and/or the transition of lights for both figure and landscape paintings provides her initial inspiration. Years of classical training in the fine arts, rooted in the study of the works of the old and new masters, established a solid foundation from which she draws inspiration for the compilation of her work.
Rosalie Sidoti earned B.F.A. and M.A. degrees. After graduate school, she continued her education at Oxford University’s Ruskin School of Fine Arts summer exchange program, where she credits her teachers for their confidence and encouragement. Presently, she maintains a studio in Ipswich, MA and is also a Supervisor of graduate students for Tufts University, in affiliation with The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She is a frequent arts lecturer and demonstrator at various organizations and associations, and her work is in the collection of numerous corporations, cities, and individuals along the East Coast.
