Victoria Stagni’s figurative painting, which was born in Buenos Aires to a Paraguayan father and an Argentinean mother, oscillates between realism and dreamlikeism. His imagination is inspired by the works of great Latin American writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Alejo Carpentier, where nature often plays a major role.
This "magical realism" inspires him to create figurative, colourful and luminous canvases in which characters are represented in a fantasized nature, surrounded by a whole friendly or threatening bestiary. The painter often places the human silhouette she masters best, her image, in order to play with our perceptions and develop a lush pictorial language. Animality is the centerpiece of a curiosity cabinet where the ancestral feelings of the psyche are expressed: fear, anger, laughter...
Victoria Stagni apprenticed in oil painting with Pierre Lafage (a graduate of the Beaux-arts de Paris and Bordeaux) at the Atelier des Beaux-arts de Bordeaux. At the same time, she set up her workshop in the Bordeaux district of Les Chartrons.
Two works by Victoria Stagni, "Animal Kingdom" and "Self-portrait aux Amaryllis", are now part of the Bernard Magrez Cultural Institute’s private collection.
