Milan, 5 December 2019 - Roberta Pozzi brings her thoughts to life through embroidery: Rainbow, Green Fantasy, Happiness, Encounter, Camogli, Giò created together with her sister, the Minorca or Gino pillow, for her husband, are some of the titles of the works put on display between the 6th and 24th of December 2019 at Meme Gallery in Milan, and which illustrate her artistic evolution. Paintings full of aesthetic sense, some of which have cheered for years the patrons of the historic family restaurant, "Il Carpaccio" in via Settala in Milan, including well-known artists for whom Roberta creates an embroidery as a place holder, and where it was later founded , in 2012, the “il Crepaccio” gallery-showcase.
"If it is true that fabrics are formed by intertwining threads just as words (Aldous Huxley) form the thread with which we bind our experiences, then we can say that Roberta's experiences of existence are coloured threads impressed through the noble art of embroidery - says Giovanni Maria Conti Author of the text of the catalog - this, which has always been codified as a minor art practiced exclusively manually by young women to gain awareness on how to embellish and take care of

household linen, becomes for Roberta Pozzi an instrument of artistic representation in which the meaning of things takes on a different connotation. Exactly like the English Julie Cockburn, who retrieves old photographs from the 1920s and 1930s and covers them with hand-embroidered multicoloured polka dots with minute stitches, or Maggie Dunlap, who transformed embroidery from a historic decorative art into a powerful tool of denouncing violence against women, Roberta stages and gives shape to her fantasies, from everyday objects to flower vases to the beautiful representations of prickly pear plants by weaving and embroidering yarns of different nature. And perhaps this is precisely its peculiarity, that of knowing how to dose the color but above all to use the qualities of the yarns to make the shades, now lighter now darker, restoring depth to the embroidered subject. That of Roberta can be considered as very pure craftsmanship since she is also the one who builds the canvases to be embroidered, does the geometric research and experimentation, in which color and its shades are the real protagonists. Thoughts brought to life through coloured yarns that represent Roberta Pozzi and what is indeed most precious of herself with her works, a gentle soul made eternal thanks to a simple modified thread of meaning”.
