For several years Stefania Hepeisen has dedicated herself to painting what is improperly called "still life": improperly because her subjects are, in reality, powerfully alive and speaking. They tell the delicacy, all feminine, of the silks that envelop the fruits of nature, the fantastic representation of earthly objects that escape materiality and become a precious representation. The hand, controlled, expresses a cold precision technique, with an exasperated search for detail, both in colors and in lights, but painting, in itself, has nothing cold: on the contrary, it shows a deep love for a comforting nature and beloved, amazing in its beauty. Thus, from that love, an almost sensual softness in the petals, in the fabrics, in the rich nuances, a joyful vivacity in the colors that appears simple, almost like a child in front of an expected gift, but actually hides an artistic knowledge that not all is given. The choice of still life may seem outdated, nostalgic, but, reworked in a modern key, it is motivated as the only way to express the acute sensitivity, allowing it to tell its own story, revealing it in part.
