Barbara Piatti is a narrator. Her paintings, mainly oil colours, are talking about life, meeting people and at the same time they are a diary of her unsaturated curiosity. Piatti's work are philosophical and precious. You sink into them; feel the force of nature and the author's power.She is a traveler, always looking for what may be next: invisibility, unspeakable things and what is proper for discoverers: to surmount horizons, to open new perspectives. Her art reflects all the contrasts life is giving to us. With her techniques and intelligent presence she is always able to create harmony, in spite of quoted contrasts. In her strong presence the works wake up our demands and longings to share the artist's unsaturated curiosity. B.P. the painter, like she calls herself, but she is much more for me. She is a discovery. JK
