TRANSFORMATIONS ON CANVAS 1975-1976

In Transformations, the topic of deconstructing the female image gains even more strength. Gretta's face is being manipulated and distorted: “Rather than the manifestation of personal destructive tendencies, these images should be viewed as the externalization of a revolt directed against the male cultural stereotype, mortifying as it does the feminine form into the authoritarian and distorting dimension of an abstract and aesthetic beauty, to which the artist opposes the angry vision of a reverse side, through a body that is deformed, disfigured and fragmented”(Giorgio, Verzotti ,April 1979). Gretta / Diagramma, Magazine G7 Studio Italy.

TRANSFORMATIONS DRAWINGS 1986

The body, the photographic image, and a pool of memories.. "From these emerge artistic moments which are at once simple and profound, reaching as they do into hidden recesses of recognition, into the collective experience of behaviour and attitudes, and epiphanies of transformation, expansion and emerging identity. In a spatial and temporal dimension in which event becomes the site of personal exploration."
April 18, 1979 - Germano Beringheli - Ed.: Il Lavoro - Genova - Italy
