The work aims at retracing a journey: capturing the moment of creation, the sacred fire that drives each of us to live, to dream and to create.
The canvas represents the golden spiral, the measure of nature perfection, in a swirl of concentric and harmonious vortexes. It is the fire that drives passion and it is the artist who is the constructor. The activating object of the creative gesture (the stove) is veiled by a linen canvas, you only just perceive the golden spiral: what it is communicating is the message, that which is underlying at the time of creating the idea. Here the idea of the artist and the designer become one in the instant of eternal becoming.
The work reflects the Foster universe and the values that the company embodies: in addition to technical research of the materials, the elegance of the design and function, the company cares greatly about environmental issues, artistic heritage and art in general. Not only mere function but a channel of beauty in its broadest sense. In Foster products you can see elegance, the judicious choice of materials, the colours, everything that a painter also prepares in the moment in which he is about to make the invisible visible, i.e. his creation.

In the course of 2013 she participated in the competition ran by the art critic Antonio D'Avossa, held between Milan and Washington. The event in question, SIAMO QUEL CHE MANGIAMO?
