Escape from reality

  • Margherita Chimenti

Can an account person also be into art? Maybe that's an awkward combination, but why not. I inherited my passion for painting from my aunt, who used to have her own little art studio in Rome. Through my work I explore the quest for identity and the challenges encountered in growing and affirming our identity. What inspires me is the constant fight between our deepest instincts, the constrictions of our minds and the barriers of achieving the normality and perfection imposed by today’s society. My latest work "Escape from reality" has been exhibited at the Holy Art Gallery in London in July 2021.
