Understand a little about the art of Emma
Arte Primitivista or Naive (word of French origin, whose meaning is naïve) is an artistic style that does not follow the traditional rules of image representation.
Generally primitivists artists are self-taught, it means, learn alone, and create their own style and technical resources working.
They have the following characteristics:
- Autodidact (self taught), result of the lack of academic training in the artistic field;
- Refusal or even unaware of the use of the canons of academic art;
- flat composition, bidimensional, tends to symmetry and the line is always figurative;
- There is no linear geometric perspective. The artist does not use the perspective of the rules, defined by the Renaissance, such as reducing the size of objects in proportion to the distance, the reduction of the color intensity and accuracy of details according to the distance;
- Detailed scenarios of figures and;
- Contempt for the faithful representation of reality;
- exuberant colors;
- Strokes contained with many colors.

Who encouraged me was my friend Naif artist Raquel Gallena.
