Breza Cecchini (Oviedo, 1976), currently lives and works in Nava (Asturias).
Her painting could be described as a tale narration, mysterious and allegorical, but also very sincere and honest.
This "invisible narrative", which Breza pours into her canvases, is made up of characters such as the forest, the mist, the humid green, the overcast gray, the wolf that stalks, and the mare that gallops. Her painting is anecdotal and affective: her memories are its storage and its roots lays in her everyday environment. And all this "invisible narrative", conclusively, constitutes the architectures of her own self.
However, although in traditional narratives the wolf is a sign of danger, of approaching the wild and the unknown, in Breza's works, the traditional roles can be rearranged until the characters become some sot of accomplices. Sometimes even new uncensored contexts develop, such as a strong erotic tension between the animal and the girl-woman, in which nature, the disturbing, the instinctive and the psyche as untamed territory serve as backdrop.
In this story Breza invites us to get to know her "invisible narrative", to read between the lines, to decode the established imaginaries, to transgress the norm. In short, to go out into the woods.
Breza Cecchini began her sculpture studies at the Oviedo School of Art in 1998.
