Jacqueline Firmo Falconi is a French Italian American artist who grew up in Paris, France where she graduated in Literature and Foreign Languages at the Sorbonne University while cultivating the study of representational art.
She attended later the National Academy of Fine Arts in Manhattan, New York.
She has been traveling the world since infancy and living in different countries overseas.
Her mixed origins and her contact with different cultures deeply inspire her paintings:
Abstract or figurative, there are no limits to the artist’s versatility: warm tinted landscapes, aquatic clearness, fluid gesturing girls surrounded by flowers, various faces sharing the same humanity.
“I use oil paint, brushes and palette knives, playing with shapes, colors and light, applying the contrast of smooth and textured surfaces to achieve a sense of sculptural relief.
My recent works are more dedicated to positivity and hope because of nowadays people’s weariness:
It is a combination of abstract skyscrapers and figurative flowers:
Huge industrial buildings representing the tumultuous world outside our windows, contrasting with figurative organic flowers on our balconies, symbolizing instead, our own peaceful oases of serenity, joy, dream and hope.”
