Getting to Know Roberta

Roberta’s inspiration comes from the svelte forms of swimmers and divers. Her stylized figures are reminiscent of vintage Art Nouveau posters, yet their compositional placement against color-blocked backgrounds suggest modern and pop art influences. Roberta plays with both symmetry and asymmetry in her picture planes, coaxing the eye around each painting as the viewer admires the graceful movement yet perfect stillness of each diver. Simplicity, femininity, and joyful playfulness characterize Roberta’s paintings. She works out of her native Milan, Italy, as well as New York City.
