Imma Garofalo

Immaculate Garofalo (Imma) was born in Cassano at the Ionian on 1962, she began from elementary school to have a passion for drawing and watercolors.
She dedicates to the landscapes, flowers, nature enchanted by the immensity and colors that surround his summer days in the countryside where she spends most of his summer holidays.
The passion for art is immense; she continues over time as a self-taught trying to perfect herself and scrutinize beauty in every corner that surrounds her to bring her back to the canvas according to her inner flair.
Painting for her is entering an idyllic dimension where everything becomes beautiful, sublime, fascinating, is alien from all that is around, it becomes almost therapeutic to paint after strenuous days.
More than painting, it seems to witness a nod to life, to energy, to ancestral strength. The brushstroke is never flat, but it is almost material, the colors are strong, alive and the color becomes a breath of wind, flash of color, water meltdown.
The landscapes, the subjects are never merely painted, but sublimated by an almost dreamlike dimension, from the perspective of a sentiment self who tells and meditates.
Despite her love for art, for a long time taken by the hectic life and family commitments, she left, but as soon as she gave her the opportunity to resume with fervor and great determination. She has participated in various exhibitions, with success and appreciation for her works. she quote only a few of the most important where it was awarded with various honors “Art shows itself” at Palazzo Ferrajoli, Rome 1999; Exhibitions in the various museums of Calabria; but not talk about the last award that was awarded at the “Terme Sibaritide” by Cassano Allo Ionio “on the occasion of the XXIV edition Ago D’Oro Special edition Magna Greece, conceived by the journalist of fashion and costume Guccio D’Ese.
