Critic of Arrachme Art
“Vere e proprie tempeste materiche, quelle dipinte da Arrachme. Presagi, forze opposte, dialogare, ma in lingue diverse. Esplosioni di un’anima, che chiede nuova cittadinanza sulla tela. La sua pittura esprime la genialità del segno. Un segno che stanco di vagare nei sentieri conosciuti, intraprende nuove strade. Strade che lo conducono in nuovi paradisi visivi, in cui poter esprimere tutta la sua forza. Energia creativa come motore, di un percorso di ricerca estremamente dotto. Vortici di luce spezzano l’armonia e conducono l’osservatore nella terra di Arrachme. I suoi dipinti hanno la stessa forza evocativa delle opere di Géricault e l’eleganza pittorica della ballerine di Degas. La pittura di Arrachme è un turbinio di emozioni. Emozioni che hanno la potenza di un fiume in piena. Emozioni che squarciano la tranquillità quotidiana per arrivare a generare la genialità del caos. Le sue sono voci su tela. Così’ amo definirle. I lavori di Arrachme costituiscono, così, i nuovi “best seller” della pittura contemporanea”. Salvatore Russo – International curator and critic
Salvatore Russo – International curator and critic “These are real storm of matter, those painted by Arrachme. Omens, opposing forces, dialogue, but in different languages. Explosions of a soul, which calls for new citizenship on the canvas. Her painting expresses the genius of the sign. A sign that tired of wandering in the paths known, embarks on new roads. Roads that lead to new visual paradise, where they can express all her strength. Creative energy as an engine, a search path extremely learned. Vortices of light break the harmony and lead the viewer into the land of Arrachme. Her paintings have the same evocative power of the works of Géricault and the pictorial elegance of dancers by Degas. The painting of Arrachme is a whirlwind of emotions. Emotions that have the power of a river in flood. Emotions that pierce the quiet everyday to get to generate the genius of chaos. Its entries are on canvas. So ‘define love. The work of Arrachme up, so, the new “best seller” of contemporary painting. ”

Arrachme brings to the world a new, unique organic approach to the painterly vision of nature: earth, sky, and land. Arrachme, a front runner in the Contemporary Abstract Realist movement of the 21st century isan artist whose work will endure well beyond this century.
With most art, we are viewers of the artist creation. You are more than a viewer of Arrachme’s magnificent paintings, as she draws you into the work. Perhaps it is the blending of the realist aspects into the abstract, or perhaps it is the depth of the horizon line that draws you into her paintings, As a viewer you feel present, almost as if you are floating in and out of the piece . You find peacefulness as you enter the beautiful world she has created. This is not surprising, the harmonics of her ancient Sanskrit name, Arrachme also brings peacefulness and a smile.
Arrachme’s art is fluid and yet shows much control. She has a softness among much movement.Her cloud formations swirl like the beautiful dancers of Degas, combined with the fluidity and movement of Argentine tango dancers. Her sea recalls the glassiness of Cassatt’s seas, in her painting Summertime and other impressionist seas. Yet Arrachme paints from the “inside -out”. No reference photos, just her love affair with the sea and life brings these amazing creations from her soul. The depth in her art is strong and when combined with the light that moves throughout, captivates your mind and soul. She begins with a long process of canvas preparation which provides a smooth, clean surface on which numerous layers of colors, combine to create great intensity, reminiscent of some of the greatest Fauvist painters including:Matisse, Gaughin, and Derain. In her own unique way, she captures the s connection between reality and abstraction. Walking away from her work is difficult as you are pulled back by greatness.
