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 eleventh painting in this series represents idealism and vision. She is assertive, independent, progressive, analytical, original and inventive. I describe her as “The Advocate of Knowledge” with the dominant keyword “I KNOW”. She is a communicator, an idea person. The “water” being poured out stands for truth. A truth-teller; she gives out opinions and observations & doesn’t change her mind easily. Sometimes she will be argumentative not because she feels deeply, but simply because she enjoys the intellectual exercise. She is a humanitarian, concerned with the welfare of the world, but does not get deeply involved in intimate relationships. There is a certain distant quality to her, a detachment and aloofness of spirit.
