“VoYAGER” is a journey through the use of virtual images, manipulated and morphed to infinity, and explored in terms of their mutating potential, and ultimately, their intrinsic structure. The images are printed on glass to emphasize their existence beyond their support and their presence as pure light and shade. “The invisible is not dark or mysterious; it is transparent,” says the artist.
Bettineschi’s work explores different relationships with their surrounding reality, using a variety of methods and materials. Her work looks at generative and relational connections and the compositional links among paintings, sculpture, architecture, photography, and computer art.
