Letizia Le FurMythologies
“Letizia Le Fur’s work Mythologies has its roots in two passions that have been with the artist since childhood: Greek mythology and the search for beauty.
Guided by the classical poets, in particular Hesiod and Ovid, Letizia freely interprets the myths that she revisits with her own sensitivity and a contemporary aesthetic approach. Letizia transforms and transcends what surrounds her, embellishes reality, colours the greys to invent a world as a reference point where she can settle down, repair herself and find a balance in the midst of harshness. This search for an aesthetic refuge and a state of plenitude borders on obsession, and one is reminded of Stendhal who wrote, in the essay De l’amour, “Beauty is only the promise of happiness”. Her quest for harmony and beauty, like the practice of a cult, in opposition to ugliness and inappropriateness, is liberated and distant from the codes in force, unexpected, absolute, sometimes secret.”
