About titles

Titles for me are part of the work itself, born together with it, they are in the painted canvass, in the drawn sheet, in the sculptured bronze. They complete my works and never are arbitrary. Maybe some work born without titles…but this happens rather with preparatory works or sketches that, later, I decide to show in public. In my poetry, titles correspond, almost always, to the last verse. But not even in this case it’s a decision taken previously, a fixed or predetermined scheme.

Interview to Gladys Sica by Edith Checa published on spanish magazine “Jirones de Azul”(04.08.2006)

"Is there a thoroughly unity that supports the different multifoil lobes: painting, poetry, sculpture, engraving and intagliated cartons? I would say yes, it is due to an interesting interaction, to an interplay between the two main artist souls, the plastic one and the poetic-musical one."

Franco De Faveri, one-person Exhibition Presentation “Circolo Filologico”, Milan, 2002.

"The struggles between life and death, rage and love, hope and despair pass through, therefore, her artistic work tissue hold by a genuine vitality, which not much concedes to aesthetical hedonism or to experimental complacence."

Gianni Pre, review on “Controcorrente” magazine, Milan, 2000.
