Elisa Valenti, The Climber Amongst Adversity - Original Painting
The Climber Amongst Adversity
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.
In us lives the desire to climb great heights yet we are sometimes held down by feelings of unworthiness. Some of us carry a lifelong lesson of learning to love ourselves. I describe her as “The Climber Amongst Adversity” with the dominant keyword “I USE”. She uses strategy instead of force to forge ahead. She strives to reach the top yet has her other hand still grasping down at the past - the thoughts that weigh down her journey. Her energy is transcendent amongst discomfort. She is determined and despite her intelligence, she often feels insecure. Her life is marked by a purposeful pursuit of her destiny. She is ambitious, a born climber who is not satisfied with staying at the bottom. An aura of melancholy and sternness surrounds her. In certain ways, an austere and strict parent lives inside her. Yet, with all this internal battle occurring in her mind - she persists, leads the way and shines her light for others.
