My works put on canvas what happens within us. They describe interactions (transactional analysis calls them "games", among sub-personalities (so defined by the famous psychologist Assagioli). To do this I use acrylic colors. I have a romantic way to paint and I paint the things that happen under the surface (we could say they have an esoteric meaning).
Why acrylic paintings?
I think acrylic is a modern medium. It is practical and comfortable. And it allows me to imitate as well the nuances of watercolor as the impact of knife painting with oil colors.
Why romantic art?
Romanticism is in my character, is my way of seeing life.
Do you know the Baudelaire's definition of Romanticism? He said Romanticism is a "mode of feeling". And my paintings express a "mode of feeling".
In New York I have been defined as "a contemporary romantic" artist (Maurice Taplinger).
Am I only a romantic?
The Agora-Gallery press release 2009 explains:
"Although her use of dramatic mood is drawn directly from the Romantic tradition, Mazzoldi’s color pallet and soft modeling of form is reminiscent of the Old Masters of the Renaissance. A spiritual thinker who buries herself in each work of art, Mazzoldi is also deeply affected by the philosophical message of the Christian Esoteric teacher Daskalos".
Are my introspective paintings both romantic and esoteric?
Even if I am fundamentally a romantic, I like also expressionist paintings. Do you know Munch? What a wonderful expression of feeling! His painting "the Scream" is vibrating. You can feel the despair, the fear in it!
It expresses more than a simple emotion. Try to master such an "emotion"! You don't get it! It expresses what I call "a force". Yet, my aim is to paint these "forces" and also the "games" (yes! just the ones of transactional analysis) that happen between them.
