Giulia Quaresima is an Italian artist who recently moved to Cambridge, UK. Her artistic activity focuses on figurative subjects, particularly portraits and nudes. The women's universe is the main theme of her painting season: the relentless passage of time, the laceration of abandonment, the fascinating moment of conception are the subjects on which she reflects. She uses painting to analyse our fears and hopes, and her works do not hide behind intellectual games.
The artist believes that her works can show her love for tradition and her respect for the craft, because, in her opinion, modernity should be find through the old rule of art. She is very faithful to the "poetic of realism" with which she carries on her own idea of reality. The recent objective is to reinterpret in her paintings the ancestral myths of Greek culture.
Giulia Quaresima's art career includes an extensive education. She completed her MA in History of Contemporary Art with honours from University of Pisa, Italy in 2012. Prior to receiving her MA, she earned her BA in Cultural Heritage Studies with honours from University of Pisa, Italy in 2009, and her BA in Painting with honours, from the Academy of Fine Arts, Carrara, Italy in 2006.
