Self-taught Italian abstract artist Alessandra Viola has had her paintings collected by art lovers across the globe. Alessandra's work possesses that unique quality found in all great art;- it connects on a deep level with the viewer and elicits a strong emotional response. Through her bold use of colour, texture and evocative abstract forms, she draws the observer into her world, tapping into a broad range of emotions. The intention is always to create art that moves and lifts you out of the ordinary world but can often be very personal in it's meaning to the individual.Alessandra's work centres around her combinations of texture and colour, the acrylic paint latching onto the plaster she often applies to her base coat, creating depth and intrigue when the light hits it from different angles. She loves to use a variety of implements from wide brushes to spatulas, pallet knives and squeegees.
