Born in 1985 in Venice, Italy. Lives and works in Paris, France.
In her paintings, Giulia Andreani revisits the art of portraiture, enlivening her narrative with emblematic references and details from intimacy. This unusual association as well as the ambiguous atmosphere created by the exclusive use of Payne Grey (a blue-grey hue) questions our relationship to society and women’s place in it, in particular. Generally speaking, the artist distorts patriarchal icons, depriving them from their power and their influence by revealing for example, the commonplace of a future dictator’s personal life or by highlighting the work of women whose destiny was to serve the male power. Giulia Andreani works from public and private archive images to develop her research and thus reveals the existence of these fractional breaking points between the acceptable and the unspeakable.
