Francesca Leone, Senza Titolo, 2006.
Francesca Leone was born in Rome in a creative and versatile family: her father, Sergio Leone was the outstanding film director removing Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood and Ennio Morricone, Francesca’s mother was the famous ballerina, the grandmother – the actress. Since her birth Francesca has been allocated by a deep, spontaneous emotionality which has expressed in her pictorial works.
In the beginning of her creative way Francesca Leone studied and reinterpreted art experience of futurists: J. Severirni, U. Boccioni, C. Carra, J. Balla. The enamourment of futurism was reflected on the works of the artist – for her creativity are characteristic energetical compositions where figures movements are shown in a dynamic stream of time, where prevail flashing forms zigzags, oblique lines, where movement is transferred by imposing of consecutive phases to one image —by so-called principle of simultaneity. This «close- dynamic» art principle is reflected in her huge portraits, like they are piling on the spectator and not holding in canvas borders.
