Roberta Ubaldi, 1965 | Abstract /Figurative painter


Italian painter Roberta Ubaldi was born in Terni and lives and works in Narni, a small city rich in history in the region of Umbria. In 1984 she obtained a diploma as Fine Arts Teacher. The curiosity and the desire to grow, led her to experiment and so, after studying and applying various classical techniques, she gradually developed a well-defined style of her own, characterized by extreme painting techniques and colours reduced to the bone.


The continuous research of different materials led her today to use iron sheets, in which the oxidation created by the time, goes beyond the status of mere support to become an essential part of her pictorial work. The love for the human body, makes her want to represent figures that again, starting from a figurative matrix, seem to be deliberately hidden behind an oxidized texture that speaks of both time and memory.
































Roberta Ubaldi nasce a Terni, vive e lavora a Narni Scalo (TR). Si diploma maestra d'arte presso l'Istituto "Orneore Metelli" di Terni. La curiosità e la voglia di crescere la portano a sperimentare di continuo: dopo aver studiato e frequentato le diverse tecniche classiche, arriva progressivamente a sviluppare una sua ben definita cifra stilistica, una tecnica estrema e delle cromie ridotte all'osso sono al servizio di un lavoro personalissimo. La continua ricerca di materiali diversi l'ha portata attualmente ad utilizzare lamiere di ferro in cui l'ossidazione creata dal tempo supera lo status di mero supporto per divenire parte essenziale dell'opera pittorica. L'amore per il corpo umano, la porta a raffigurazioni che a partire da una matrice ancora volutamente figurativa sembrano volersi celare dentro una trama di ossidazioni che parlano di tempo e di memoria.
