Corona augustus. Beatrice Bobst Malamegi Lab
During these troublesome times, I’ve used the medium of painting as a way to exorcise negativity.
Inspired by nature, I considered the case of the Semper Augustus, a renowned kind of tulip during the seventeenth century in the Netherlands. Its bulb, infected by the Potyvirus, in full blooming showed beautiful colored streaks on the petals.
The negative but not totally destructive essence of the virus had eventually enhanced the tulip, renovating it into a unique variety.
Will this be our future? Will we manage to improve ourselves once the pandemic is over?
Encouraged by nature, will we be able to comply with the times and be conscious of the importance of collaboration?
The adaptability granted by the oil painting technique facilitates the creation of images which represent the product of my ideas, composed of different layers of knowledge and finally materialized and completed by color.
