Marta Sesana has an unconventional and unique approach to figurative painting. She paints from the imagination, creating colorful characters that reference the cartoons of her youth as well as art-historical tradition. Her approach is painterly rather than illustrative, rendering these imaginary figures with expressive brush strokes that allow the colors to run.
