Ketty Tagliatti

Artista

Ketty Tagliatti, born in Ferrara in 1955, graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Bologna. Between 1992 and 2002 the artist collaborated with the Gallery Studio la Città di Verona, where she began to participate international art fairs. Her studies began with reflections on informal art, which have been the basis for all her works, then she created series dedicated to “chairs” and “roses”. She began her “roses” series in 2003 using various techniques, including embroidery on canvas. The series dedicated to earth and the cultivation of roses, begins when the artist moved to her studio at the countryside, in province of Ferrara. For the artist, each work is like a diary page, where the rituals, slowness and patience play a crucial role. As it is visible in the great tapestry of nearly three meters, entitled Sur-natural: this time the subject is not the artist’s favourite object, a rose, but a camellia, Chinese decorative symbol that the artist made from an old Parisian upholstery at the beginning of the century. The technique used in this very big work is amazing: each one of the rose petals is realized with hundreds of pins, which, wisely accompanied and directed, create soft swirls, which is typical for this flower. The dense texture of shiny pins look like a fine silver embroidery, surrounded by a decorative frame. Nowadays, her studies are shifting towards a more informal and abstract matrix.
