Critics:

They say about her:

An artist that does not tire of searching herself, with the aim of achieving this goal by questioning herself during her trips illustrated in her works. Her life is a permanent and indispensable departure.

First thought goes to Gaugin:” some people have a purpose in their life”

Extract of the critics of the journalist  Ferdinando Bassoli

By their seductive silence the works of Mrs Berardicurti indicate us that the only way to penetrate the primitive world explored from time to time, is to remain alongside. Otherwise you have to retreat to leave in that place precisely what,  to be revealed, has to be necessarily spalled.

Extract from critic of Luigi Manzi (Poet)

That’s why the enigmatic eyes and the harmonious figure are of direct to the viewer causing a sense of dismay in atmospheres almost unreal in which figurative narration take on a symbolic significance that reaches the existential dimension of the author, between dream and reality in just one expression of memory and human intellect.

Here is the value of Barbara’s Berardicurti paintings, the image of woman is not just aesthetic beauty where the visual impact  becomes charm of harmony, but language of the spirit.

This makes us becoming open to a passage in the direction of the dreamy imagination of the artist in the clarity of her feelings.
