The work of Luciana Rondolini is an analysis of the value that is given to the objects and people and their relations. Her production is centered on the habits that determine the use and subsequent disposal of what surrounds us, as evidence of the ephemeral nature of relationships in our society. Her work is the result of a study of the sociological cores of human behaviour where it is possible to see a critique of society and the way in which we follow trends.
Her graphite drawings of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus have their faces covered with jewels as if anonymous evidenciating the stereotypes that the market uses to sell their products. Rondolini transforms them in unalterable figures just like the diamonds they present. Her fruits ornamented with plastic gems are also a reflection of the ambiguity of which one wants in the immediacy of the moment by its quality of novelty, compared to its real value and condition of being perishable.
Vanitas that reminds us of the deterioration and forgetfulness to which all things are subjected.
