Salt, fused with minerals , metals and paints, is the essence of Francesca Fontana's works. Her artistic practice often throws us into panic because it takes away the reference coordinates. In the figurative as in the abstract she tells the daily experience of her life in Ibiza. Salt is the ingredient that more than others evokes our structure and how we evolve and transform, it reacts and merges with minerals and metals, just as we modify the fundamental structure of our behavior. The salt becomes an infinite scenario with respect to the limit of the canvas ... it becomes projection.
