"The imaginary-real" by V. Dimattia is embodied in a "living" representation, embellished
by the touch of ambiguity caused by the contrast between meditation and reality, and by real and alienated figures against backgrounds of clear atmospheres that stabilize harmony.
Vanda Dimattia's painting feeds more on philosophical concepts, drawing inspiring motifs only from the real.
A reality, however, unusual, trapped in its most hidden and elusive aspects,
who is not content with flat and insignificant images, even if they are pleasing to the eye, of the real "true", but scrutinizes their disturbing implications, their secret codes.
