Featured Artist - Paola Santagostino
I re-met painting at the height of a long career as Psychoanalyst, but it was a much older and earlier love: perhaps the first. As a girl I was practicing in the studios of artists, but then my life took a different path and for many years I worked in Psychosomatic Medicine, discovering the links between mind and body and the roots of physical and mental well-being. In addition to clinical practice I published many books, wrote hundreds of articles and conducted courses, and I still do, but my love for painting continued to re-emerge in other forms, driving me to explore the symbolic meaning of colours and their psycho-physical effects in the environments in which we live (a topic on which I published the book “Il colore in casa” Ed. Feltrinelli). So finally I decided to registered to the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and graduated in Painting completing my studies.
