Italian artist Lente combines digital painting and photo manipulation to create subjects who are struggling in dream-like environments. This fusion of styles can be traced back to her time at graduate school in the late 90s. “It was an exciting time because digital art was exploding in terms of new technologies for artists,” she says.
As well as being inspired by classic works of art and literature, Lente is also fascinated by dream studies. “Since my work focuses on the psychological state of my subjects, I’m drawn to works, both written and visual, that depict the conflict and struggle of individuals dealing with the subconscious world.”
“Based on the state of sleep paralysis, the waking dream state. Sleep paralysis is a horrible condition where one is able to respond to the world around them, but with an overriding sense of helplessness.” Dead Star Dream
“Inspired by the song Anabasis, by the group Dead Can Dance. I wanted to combine steampunk and Venetian Italian paintings. Music is an element that affects my creative process, with notes and melodies functioning like words, colour and light.” Anabasis
“This conveys the conflict between one’s actions and the questioning of them. We all have moments where we question our actions and how those actions affect others can have repercussions throughout one’s lifetime.” By My Hand Christmas 2016
