«In her pintings the objects assume centrality; they come to light as they appear, without any narratological or celebratory intent. They appear with all their intrusive presence and their materiality, with their silent and quiet language. Her objects are made for pure contemplation» (Giuseppe Andreani)

Sandra Batoni was born in Florence in 1953. In 1973 she started to attend the studio of painter Emanuele Cavalli, one of the founders of the “Roman School”, being later his assistant at the Nude School of the Fine Arts Academy in Florence, where she was appointed as professor in 1997. In 1982 she graduated in architecture at the University of Florence. Her artistic work always moved along in the figuratie field, with a special interest for XX century italian painting. After graduating in architecture, realizing a conscious and tough cultural choice, she took the challenge of comparing with that period's masters back. Colour became the true protagonist of her paintings, in which she developed two main topics: “feminine figure” and “still life”, adding in 2007 the “landscape”. Still lives posess vivid colours, metaphysical atmospheres and a precious pictorial execution. Feminine figures are young women or impatient to grow up teenagers, unaware and at the very same time conscious of their beauty. They stand in quiet interiors, sometimes enlightened by a warm artificial light. Landscapes are created from life drawings, later worked out following the memory and emotions map that “life” provoked.

She collaborated with some important italian galleries and exhibited in Italy but also abroad. She passed away unexpectedly in 2017.
