SAA Artist of the Year 2024
Beinale – Oil on linen canvas, 2023, 60 × 95 cm

“Beinale” is a heartfelt tribute to the rural scenery of my childhood. The name itself harks back to a special place: my grandfather’s field, where he nurtured vegetables under the expansive sky.

In this artwork, a country lane near my grandparents’ house is bathed in the soft glow of sunset. Cool blues and purples blend with warm yellows and oranges in the sky, creating a serene atmosphere punctuated by dark clouds. Each brushstroke carries a wave of nostalgia, drawing from cherished memories of peaceful moments.

In the distance, the Maritime Alps stand tall, marking the border between Italy and France in this lesser-known part of Italy. The lane, illuminated by the evening light, is dotted with telephone posts, hinting at a journey to an undefined destination. ✨

Lights twinkle in the distance, suggesting homes where families gather for supper or return from a day’s work. And here’s where it takes a turn: this painting also reflects my move to the UK, where I now reside, adding another layer of nostalgia to the scene. “Beinale” isn’t just a painting—it’s an immersion into the comforting embrace of a timeless, nostalgic landscape, where the land meets the sky in a dance of memories.

Thank you all for your support! Let’s make “Beinale” shine bright in the SAA Professional Artist of the Year 2024 competition!
