CRITICS

Giorgio Gregorio Grasso

Critic and art historian

Lorena is an artist who constantly seeks her own inner “ego” by placing it in a sharp dialectical contrast with the social world. The works of Lorraine Ulpiani are the result of the continuous growth of opposing forces. The artist, originally from the Marche region, made his debut in the contemporary art scene in 2011 and since then has allowed his audience to appreciate his artistic production that reflects his “inner” ego, the mirror of his soul. Silence is the source of his inspiration: the artist relies on everything that can be defined as the “inaudible” to generate images, shapes and colors. The fruit of “listening” to the voice of silence becomes concrete in the production of paintings with an abstract essence.
The images and shapes that are reproduced on the canvas are logical, rational and scientifically studied, not the result of chance.
It is an architecture and in-depth study of the spaces that are enlivened by absolutely brilliant chromatic shades with “decisive” brushes that create, at the same time, a visual “disorder” that capture the viewer’s eye. The choice of using oil color enriches and embellishes the canvas and creates added value to his paintings.
The oil on canvas technique helps the artist from the Marche region to express his ego, his interiority and his perfect rigor in communicating and expressing strong and almost magnetic emotions to the observer. The geometry of the shapes merges and enters into perfect contact with the social world

Giulia Sillato

from Cam Mondadori

In expressing his pictorial art, the artist from the Marche uses the canvas as a “virtual plane where to project images and geometric constructions, which suggest abstract spatiality and perspective surprises, cut from hidden angles: they appear juxtaposed by the coagulant and suasive force of color”.
Irregular and “broken” movements distinguish the lines of a rigorous architecture: everything is expressed with a “skillful game of prestige” and in a chromatic mosaic, dominated by the continuous search for new processes of pure creation and creative chaos.
Thanks to the fusion of the emotional sphere with that of pure scientific rationality, the artist manages to express in his paintings a unique harmony that “connects” the apparent opposite polarities.

Nelle arti figurative il concetto di astratto assume il significato di «non reale». L’arte astratta è quella che non rappresenta la realtà; ma crea immagini che non appartengono alla nostra esperienza visiva. Essa, cioè, cerca di esprimere i propri contenuti nella libera composizione di linee, forme, colori, senza imitare la realtà concreta in cui noi viviamo. Tema che percorre trasversalmente molte correnti del ‘900 e della pittura contemporanea, seppure affrontato in termini diversi e con diverse intenzionalità.
Nelle tele di Lorena Ulpiani si può dire in generale che la soluzione stia nelle geometriche campiture monocromatiche che realizzano un annullamento della opposizione sfondo-figura, quest’ultima intesa come ciò che appare, ciò che, nel monocromo, quasi mosso da una forza centrifuga, si dilata fino a perdere la sua integrità segnica annullando ciò che convenzionalmente si intende per attività pittorica, ma magistralmente recuperata da una matericità e un uso sapiente del colore, in tutti i suoi aspetti simbolici ed emozionali, fino a recuperare in molti casi il “non colore”: argenti, ori, che ci rimandano a una sacralità di memoria bizantina sottolineato ancora una volta da forme circolari, con tutto il simbolismo che ne consegue.
La pittura di Lorena diventa quindi non-pittura e la pura superficie del supporto, liberata dai dettagli contingenti della raffigurazione e dell’iconografia, diventa essa stessa compiuta pittura, di semplicità assoluta, essenziale nelle sue forme geometriche, dove l’uso personale del colore, sia esso nella pittura ad olio o a fresco è condizione di elemento primordiale e indispensabile ad ogni discorso artistico e acquisisce una sua integrità e specificità proprio dall’antinomia con la pittura. Si avverte così un totalmente “altro” che si manifesta con forza misteriosa, rispetto alla quale ci sentiamo smarriti e nello stesso tempo attratti. “Il sacro”.

Massimo Deyla

Poet adn Art critic

Lorena’s canvases are distinguished by their informality and the ability to create geometric compositions through constant attention to color tones.
The paintings of the painter from the Marche region sink their own remote “roots” into the geometries of Pythagoras or Euclid; moreover, there are obvious references to the pictorial current of Kandinzkij, a painter to whom Lorraine is attached.
Lorena is an excellent interpreter of the “games” of Ulrich Ruckriem who develops and “reinterprets” in his own way with those notes of “surreal” chromaticism. All in perfect harmony and in the continuous search for compositions “sometimes suspended in space, sometimes firmly placed on the ground”.

Claudio Lepri

Art critic

It is an artist who expresses himself to the public with geometric shapes, which distinguish his works, the result of pure construction of abstract and synthesist matrix. The progress of the composition of forms, images and colors is deliberately designed ad hoc and never left to pure chance. The continuous variation of the chromatic tones converges in images absolutely loaded with emblems and scientific rigor. Lorella Ulpiani is “the artist of the chromatic tones” and has the ability to stand out for her rigorous attention that she attributes to geometric representations.

Francesca Lauria Pinter

Painter, art critic, president of the Morales Circle

“Abstract painting like an inner sanctuary, an asylum for the soul. Geometry, a mirror of realism that balances energies in the pursuit of harmonies in which physicality, spirituality, and intellect are projected”.
