Roberta Pinna has been creating art since she was a small child. Undertaking her studies in Italy, France and at School of Visual Arts – New York.

She paints on canvas, board or paper, often prepared with a gesso ground and then drawn or painted onto using mixed media such as acrylic, oil, charcoal, gouache or pencil.

From the hundreds of photos she takes, she picks out individuals and isolates figures from their original setting. Her figures are suffused in an expanse of white or colored space. Bodies are often denied in any identity and relationship with their environment.
