Art in a Feminine Perspective

It has actually become daring to do something that is aesthetically pleasing. – Loretta Fasan

Loretta Fasan says that she paints because: “I need to bring certain images to life. I have a strong feeling that I want to create an image of females that have qualities I admire, and as much as possible I am trying to make them iconic.”

Although Fasan will paint landscapes and accept commissions, she also works in series. In particular she has done a number of female heads that are striking for their decorative embellishments. They would be at home on the set of Game of Thrones. “I paint female figures. Sometimes they are mysterious, humorous or serene. Sometimes I use intense and sometimes I use subtle colours, textures, gold leaf and patterns and costumes and I try to create an iconic aspect and then soften it by the facial expression.”

She likes to create and emphasize qualities that are timeless, serenity, hope and attaining grace or being at peace. She likes to represent kindness and gentleness and has no truck with fierceness: “I avoid fierceness, it’s easy to do ugly. It has actually become daring to do something that is aesthetically pleasing.”
