Inspiration comes from the world of nature. One summer, while strolling in pine grove, she had the inspiration for this series of paintings, describing pines and her sensations
The landscapes, the glimpses and the views through the liquid and delicate touch of watercolours. A cocoon-like countryside where the colours stand off, as they are the true engine in Allegra's art.
An intense look, sharped by the lessons of her master Rudy Lanz, that shows through colours and movements the fascination of the naked body
Flowers as a metaphor of an expression of love and freedom. Paintings that reveal Allegra's vision of the existing colourful, positive and natural world
Thanks to the master Vincent Tutton she met in Casole d'Elsa, Allegra discovers a new way of painting and expressing herself: the naturalistic abstract joins her love for nature and her strenght in depicting the experience of living
Allegra Carasso was born in Athens, Greece.
During her life she lived in different countries: Greece, U.S.A., Israel, Switzerland and Italy, acquiring thus a cosmopolitan attitude.
She attended the art school in Bern (Switzerland) with Miro Sindelar, Luciano Spanio and Rudy Lanz.
Masters and friends extremely important for her education, they taught her not only the tecnique but also the philosopy of "painting". Many years ago she came with them in Italy with the aim of painting Tuscany, and she was fascinated by the places, colours and landscapes she found.
In1995 she set in Casole d'Elsa, captured by the beauty of this little town and by the hospitality of the people.
In Casole she attended the art school of Nigel Konstam, and then with the master and painter Vincent Tutton she discovered a new way of paintig: the naturalistic abstract.
With her art Allegra invites you to join hen in a journey through the world of nature and movement. Wind, water and the colours of nature she discovered during her travels in the Hawaii islands produced in her strong emotions that she always used as an inspiration for her painings.
Allegra's works have always been an "expression of love and freedom", as they always portrait sensations that go beyond of what is depict.
