— Painter

Simona Lucidi was born in San Benedetto del Tronto, in the Marche region, on July 7th, 1967. After attaining his teacher-training high school diploma, she attended the Jewellery Design course at the European Institute of Design in Rome. The 2010 seems to mark a turning point in her artistic career: she was ultimately able to establish herself as a visual artist, exploring oil painting techniques on canvas. For this reason, she decided to attend a oil painting course focusing on portraits and in 2011 she was awarded the “Eureka” international art competition critics prize in Rome. Since then, Lucidi has started to have her solo and collective exhibitions in several Italian cities, such as Rome, Viterbo, Florence, Terni, Orvieto, Bari, Ascoli Piceno, Volterra, achieving recognition from both critic and audience. Here is how she defines her art: “Jewelry is a strong form of expression: the refined shape, the delicate colours, the density of materials floating in space and time. The moment of creation is crucial and precious. Its importance lies in the total commitment while performing the creative act, that feeling, that feverish emotion shared with the soul who chooses it. Emotional and suggestive, I think jewellery must tell something about us, about our story. Like floating thoughts.”
