Chiara Bautista: Drawing with Stardust

We featured an interview with Chiara Bautista in 2014, but who could help wanting to write about such a talented artist again and perhaps share some of her new works or some you may not have seen to date. I could get lost in Chiara’s work for hours, the detail in the lines and complexity of the tales are playful and meaningful. Her illustrations transform into impressive and delicate images, even the ones relying on death as their subject are still dreamlike and luminous, each with their own magical touch. Chiara talks to the unseen, expressing unspoken words onto the page and lets music and literature influence her pieces. The energy in her illustrations is almost palpable, perhaps the attraction lies in these hidden musings, these unspoken words have been translated divinely and once we see the images it re-connects us back to our own love, loss and need to express something that doesn’t contain words.

There is a warm, velvety invitation into her world. I can lose myself in the images, seeking out a new dimension, catching a glimpse of something I had missed earlier. Chiara’s work really is awe-inspiring. I’m still confronted by images I have never seen before, just to realize they are part of Chiara’s body of work. There is a devotion there, to produce so many stunning pieces, yet not revealing everything, perhaps this is the secret, that they find you at the right time. The same way that they fall into her world, they seek their way back out at just the right time.

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world. With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
