Dedication to Barbara Rose:
Woman in hat with roses. At 17, I depicted a woman with green eyes and a fair complexion, a slightly elongated face, wearing a wide-brimmed green hat with yellow roses, I titled it: Woman in hat with roses.
I had no idea who that woman was. Shortly after, I will have met Barbara Rose, she was the woman in the portrait I gave to her. The lifelong friend, was anticipated by that portrait, a prophetic form of telepathy that not even death can elude.
In this time of pandemic Barbara taught us to be resilient, writing to the chat of artists in quarantine - all friends - a text which is a legacy : "To artist friends in the name of Santa Rosalia of Palermo, who saved Palermo from the Plague, my thoughts today March 27, 2019 ... Our duty is to preserve historical memory...The task before us is the preservation of skills and values in a global culture dominated by ignorance and materialism, and based on the sacrifice of artists strong enough to transmit ethical values among themselves when all authority goes to the highest bidder and those who inherit the earth do so by stealing from those who create it”. Rosella Vasta

Vasta defines her paintings as “iconic abstraction” and the use she makes of color is specific to the subject matter. Her use of traditional mediums such as oil colors and mineral pigments in a non traditional way leads Vasta to discover new paths and new possibilities for painting to stay alive.
