Elisa Valenti, She Who Holds Her Heart in Her Hands - Original Painting
She Who Holds Her Heart in Her Hands
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on wood
This is a unique and original work of art. Elisa Rosa Valenti is an unapologetically body-positive and contemporary figurative artist living and working in Queens, New York. The Finding Yourself Collection is a series of paintings taking us through the many phases of our personality. We each share the same qualities but are made up of different recipes of each ingredient. I chose a single figurative gesture to represent the essence of each emotion.
The twelfth and last painting in this series represents secrets, sorrows, and self-undoing. Her natives are receptive, intuitive, emotional, and very changeable. She walks in one direction and is pulled back in the other direction. I describe her as “Holds her Heart in her Hands” with the dominant keyword “I BELIEVE”. This figure is a sign of dreams and mysticism. She trusts her intuitions and feelings and tends to seek more spiritual values in life. She is an old soul, who believes she has experienced other lives in the past and also has the ability to see deeply into the human psyche. Her understanding of those around her comes first from her heart, and only then does she rationalize what she knows intuitively. She can easily become the creator of her own downfall because she can be impractical and fall prey to overindulgence and addictive behavior.
