The Italian artist Silvia Pelissero, better known as agnes-cecile, primarily creates emotionally evocative watercolor paintings. Though completing some art classes while in high school, Pelissero is largely self-taught. Through her work and experimentation she has developed a particularly whispy yet moody watercolor style. Her subjects seem to emerge out of subtle stains and promptly fade back into the paper as if viewed through a thick fog. Pelissero also captures a certain subtlety of emotion. Strong but restrained feeling appears to lurk just behind many of her portrait’s eyes, a certain understatedness that pairs well with her medium.
