Marcello Cazzaniga, Curator
Varena Villa Monastry Museum:
“The artist works in the field of figurative art favoring the landscape as an ideal expressive form with which to present his poetry. The style is refined and essential, the landscapes are simple and therefore very elegant, recalling the works of the Tuscan Macchiaoli both in the colors and in the treatment of the backgrounds. The gentle degradation of the Middle Eastern hills creates suspended atmospheres, the details are left out to give space to colors and their nuances.
Although the reference to reality is very clear, we must consider these paintings as landscapes of memorial. We are not faced with a photograph but with an image strongly influenced by the artist's personal feelings. An image that has undergone a distortion due to the passage through the memory of the artist that is not limited only to a natural transfiguration but also to enrich with a new perspective dimension a sort of fifth dimension, the one inspired by emotional introspection.
This procedure makes personal works able to reach the viewer more effectively. Pre simplifying is as if we were looking at a landscape familiar to us through the lenses of a pair of sunglasses. These lenses are nothing more than our moods that come to the surface through that typical repackage memory mechanism.
Dita Jacobovitz fills the reality of poetry urges us to go beyond opening our hearts without fear and without worries.”
