STILLNESS TO ELYSIAN
PARTICIPATES IN THE FLORENCE BIENNALE INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION
in Fortezza da Basso
23 - 31 October 2021
ABOUT THE STILLNESS TO ELYSIAN
The Stillness to Elysian paintings represents the 10 stages of the artist's life in meditation that emanates from stillness. The paintings illustrate a myriad of metamorphosis stages from awakening, determination, balance, contentment, recreating vision, exploration, reminiscing, satisfaction, submissiveness, and achieving bliss from spiritual rebirth. "Going through a roller-coaster of emotions during unprecedented times of our lives is natural" according to the artist. However, when the mountain of doubt shifts, an aurora of hope appears. This anomaly of intense emotions may be ephemeral at first but conceivably restored with feelings of self-exploration until it captures the person's blissful state of rebirth or Elysian. Similar to the historical works of the artist, she consistently communicates that "hard work is a form of meditation" and the Stillness to Elysian paintings demystify Chiqui's months of introspection that describe an individual's spiritual journey from the abyss of uncertainty to the high road in realizing elysian.
ABOUT THE FLORENCE BIENNALE INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION

In the last twenty years, the Florence Biennale has offered to all participating artist an extraordinary intercultural and interdisciplinary experience.

The Florence Biennale will be held under the high patronage of the European Parliament and Tuscan Region relating to the theme "Eternal Feminine | Eternal Change. Concepts of Femininity in Contemporary Art and Design."
The theme of the the Florence Biennale, which will be held from 23 to 31 October 2021 at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, focuses on the polychrome and multiform universe of femininity, which will be investigated in its many facets, starting with two major guidelines. On the one hand, the idea that outlines femininity in its immutable essence, which has inspired various of the most important artistic and literary creations in the history of mankind and which unfolds from the primordial cult of the Mother Goddess (Mother Earth) up to the famous Beatrice of Dante Alighieri and Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s “Eternal Feminine”: the idea of femininity as a reflection of divinity, as a spiritual love that crosses the boundaries of time, as a source of purification and elevation, and as a force of universe that forms everything and holds everything. On the other hand, the idea of perennial change that characterizes the contemporary world and that also affects femininity, which has been transformed and is transformed by the thrust of social and cultural movements such as those that have developed around feminisms and LGBTQ communities.
