I simply called my painting "lizards" because it represents a face surrounded by lizards wandering on the canvas. "Lizards" is the second painting of a triptych I initiated with "Butterflies" and finished with "Crabs". In "lizards", I play on the swarming of these beautiful reptiles to arouse surprise, fascination, perhaps also fear or disgust in some people. The golden background gives the impression of a liquid form from which the face would emerge. But the position of the lizards that rely on this uniform background tends to invalidate the liquid hypothesis. In addition, some lizards are shown in a ventral position, as if we saw them moving "stuck upside down" under a window. By introducing this physical and spatial confusion, I hope to totally immerse the observer in a surrealist experience. And, like the face that observes intrigued, this ballet of small "living fossils", I would like the spectator to abandon himself to contemplation. in most of my creations, I play a lot with the liveliness of colors. By painting these lizards, I restored their real colors to some and totally invented new ones delivered to others. This painting joins my other productions in what I would like to be a celebration of life, of all those wonderful and precious species whose fate we share on this planet...

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...
