Nature and its elements are themes dear to this painter, who often depicts in her paintings the cardinal elements of which our planet is made: earth, air, fire, water.
Here he dedicated her attention to the encounter/collision between air and earth, or rather between cold air and earth. The landscape is dominated by two colors, the red of the rocks that emerge and the gray of the air, which has condensed into a sea of clouds, which covers the valleys. Clouds that besiege the land which, immobile, tend to assert its mass like the walls of a castle from the attack of the invaders. Here we don’t know who will win. The red of the earth makes us think of an arid, dry landscape, where the vegetation does not take root and therefore scarce rains, thus assuming that the air envelops but is unable to unload its force on the earth. On the other side, we see instead white clouds full of snow, ready to cover every little tongue of the earth like a soft and cold blanket. A very particular work, which frees the imagination from preconceptions, leaving the viewer to decide what will be the next frame that mother nature will develop.
