Giulia Ronchetti is a young Italian artist who grew up in the countryside, always in contact with nature, where she discovered the totality and balance that explained everything that surrounds us.
Ronchetti uses her skills to recreate what she see in her environment, revisiting old techniques like liquid ink pennibs, embroidery and classical methods of representing reality like watercolor and acrylic... she also finds inspiration in Flemish painters' techniques. The precision of recreating reality has always fascinated her, like the old herbarium illustrations,the world of dreams, the alchemical symbolism and the Egyptian horror vacui.
The skin, the body and the plot of the animals are starting points to explore human behavior, old fairy tales, myths and archetypes that are carriers of an infinite cyclic time,teaching us what it was and what it can still repeat in the contemporary world. Everything is a symbol and everything, silently and hidden behind a decorative aspect, tells its story.
For her solo exhibition at Museo Meà, Ronchetti was challenged by artistic director Alec Von Bargen to tell her life story on a 25 meter piece of cloth which shall be hung throughout the space. The piece is titled: UNUNICOFILO (ASINGLETHREAD).
Giulia received her diploma from the “Bruno Munari” art high school, in Crema, and graduated from L.A.B.A, the Art Academy in Brescia, in Graphic Design and Multimedia. Her works are characterized by detailed figures which are painted by using liquid-ink pen-nibs, wide-pointed felt-tip pens, watercolors, gold leaf, varnish and more. Being inspired by the “ancient art craft” of the pen-nibs as well as embroidery, her work immediately reminds us more of natural, slower vital rhythms, in contrast with today’s frenetic lifestyle. Indeed the main subject is nature, in all its forms. Animals and vegetation show their essence through evolution, mutation, isolation and aggregation, forming a kind of collective consciousness and creating, in this way, an imaginary world where everything is connected.
Giulia Ronchetti has exhibited in galleries around the world.
MUSEO MEà gratefully acknowledge and thank the ASSOCIAZIONE “ASILO DEI CREATIVI DI MEANO” for their support in the production of Giulia Ronchetti's UNUNICOFILO
