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
