Cinzia Pellin paints the figure of Jesus surrounded by tempting women in an atmosphere between the sacred and the profane. The extraordinary interpretative ability of this Roman artist, manages to enhance the seductive qualities of the female protagonists thanks to a technique of refined elegance where black and white prevails to leave the role of narrative underlines with rapid touches of color.
The protagonist is the light that creates suggestive contrasts and makes the represented scenes three-dimensional. The expressiveness of the faces and the poses of the characters, thus reach a strong emotional charge.
The exhibition shows a male figure who interprets Christ while he is performing the Eucharistic rite of the Last Supper “wrapped in a white garment that seems to want to defend him from the surrounding world”. It is a Christ, as Luciano Caprile writes, who “is not disturbed by the seductive behavior of those around him. His gaze is turned to us, who looks and understand perfectly the role of temptresses, since they belong to our daily reality”. It can also be considered as a reflection on a modern Jesus, who transforms himself from a sacred figure to a deeply human one. Other portraits of splendid women constitute the corollary of an exhibition where female beauty assumes the role of constant visual and perceptual attraction.
