Simon Bartle, Visual Arts Correspondent for The Yorkshire Times review of my Solo Exhibition
exhibition is explores colour and celebrates the beauty of the landscapes both
here in Yorkshire, and Tuscany.
'Vibrate' is an understatement, the colours pulsate. You will perhaps be baffled by Giuliana's reference to mosaic. Well the art of mosaic is a part of her soul, and references the fact that she spent her early formative years in her father's mosaic studio in Tuscany.

Born in Tuscany, Giuliana gained
a Master of Arts from the Istituto D'Arte Stagio Stagi in Pietrasanta, and
graduated in painting from the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Carrara. She moved to
Yorkshire in 1987.
The use of colours, and the semi abstract style lend themselves in equal measure to her Yorkshire and Tuscan landscapes. But it is more than just those qualities, it is also all about excellent composition, which ensures that each of her paintings is exquisitely balanced. The combined use of the brush and palette knife have been mastered, and that there is a truly mosaic quality underpinning each work.
Crucially all the aspects of Giuliana's art are firmly rooted in her desire to create works which allow the 'memory and imagination to interact', and she does that with consummate skill.
Giuliana has exhibited widely both in Group Shows, Solo Exhibitions and her work has been acquired by public collections. She first had her work exhibited at the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts in 1973, and over 40 years later she is still captivating audiences.
The exhibition should not be missed, so go on schedule a visit, you will be able to celebrate energy, inspirational use of colour, and unforgettable landscapes.
