    Ottavia Rispoli: the mirror of herself. But in the mirror, which is her painting, she finds herself as she is, and as well as she would like to be. In her paintings, the paintings of her youth full of projects, we find the enigmatic fantasy to represent the future, and a quick presence in the human figure. The woman's body takes the entirety, because the painter carries, in the structure and dressing the body, her whole need to charge up the picture with a global inner feeling and external explosion. Her paintings have an outer skin, the one immediately visible and available, and another, which is the essence of the painting, in the hiding place of her intimate dialogue. The apparent explosion of the framework which imposes itself, is due to the expansion of the human figure in an amplifying mirror. From a mirror of the painter herself, even if the subject is very different and indeed this is a hiding filled with poetry, the picture transfers itself in each of us which contemplate it. The suggestive attraction that the Rispoli creates and exerts in the picture/viewer dialogue, has a secret of clean clarity. The human figure becomes a landscape. The colors move theirselves in the representation of a universal terrestrial spring. They're colors of the earth. The shot is repeated, with fusion, when the geometries of the painting also become multicoloured despite the definiteness of the blue, the almost yellow, the intermediate pigments, which are characteristic of this painter.
