CRITIC EXCERPT...

"Carina Barone always delights me by modernity, the variety and the courage of her subjects. From her work emerges an extraordinary vitality that allows her, with each one of her paintings, to embarq without complex on a new adventure in search of an unknown land. (...) This artist is distinguished from most other naïve painters by a resolutely contemporary manner. Freedom of tone, themes, and narration. (...) Carina Barone gives me the impression to "repair" the world with her brushes, and to give it back to us like new, original, exciting, animated by a colorful and joyful faith in humanity. Her beautiful work belongs to those which make a bridge between the particular and the universal, and which annouce the exceptional artist." (Sureau, Le Blog Culture)

First Award Of The Jury 2015, LUCIA D'ORO in Varenna (Italy)

MOTIVAZIONE DELLA GIURIA:"Tanta meraviglia di fronte a questo dipinto che va ben oltre l'omaggiare il celebre "Doganiere" restituendoci, quasi per osmosi, quell'essenza e quelle impressioni ingenue e originali, tali da generare una nuova arte, il « naif » per l'appunto. Il sogno, la favola, la giungla ... riappaiono qui in uno scenario nuovo, personale e rivissuto dalla pittrice, che lo cesella e perfeziona con propri momenti di vita, affetti, musica, pittura e ricordi ... sono solo alcuni fra i mille sassolini variopinti che colorano il mosaico dell'esistenza, qui quasi dei bon-bon... forse ad alleggerire un po' il peso di quel dolore che, pure, è parte della vita! All'orizzonte l'azzurro, un battito d'ali e una vela bianca, un sole rossa ci scalda e l'arte, immortale, ci ridona nuova lin fa!"
