"Nel cielo e Nell'uomo" 2018 oil on canvas
Delta NA is comprised of artists Neva Epoque and Alessandro Vignola.
They met at the University of Turin where they graduated in Psychology in 2003. Since childhood, both of them had always a great passion for art, so after falling in love and becoming a couple, they changed their lives becoming professional artists and using their psychological background to explore themselves so deeply to reach a complete expression of their souls.
Delta N.A. total and complex collaboration mixes together male and female, two different souls and two different way of seeing the world; thanks to their strong connection and to the complete technical and emotional fusion, Delta N.A. hearts beat at the same rhythm creating artwork that seem made by only one artist.
After a beginning with portraits and figurative works, Delta N.A. started to analyze deeply their emotions, developing the ability of express themselves together, working simultaneously on the same canvas.
From 2008 they took part to some solo and group exhibitions in Italy and later on they brought their art to the international contemporary art scene travelling to South America. In 2010 they arrived in the United States with many group and solo shows: Norbertellen Gallery,” The Colors of Joy” BOA Art Gallery, Los Angeles California etc..
After a period of research the artists developed a new technique using only bare hands to paint, this choice gave them the name of “Instinctive Expressionists” ( Galeria El Lunario, San Jose del Cabo, Mexico 2012).
The artworks created between 2012 and 2014 tell about the lightness of an harmonious Universe in which humanity of feelings and immensity of spirit, merge in a dance of colors and lines collected into compositions of flowers. This serie of paintings has been shown in U.S.A at Soho Gallery Beverly Hills, California and in Italy at Die Mauer Art Gallery, receiving also the “Quality and Originality Award” at the 5th Biennale of Genoa and the “Jury Award” at the Satura Prize 2013.
In 2014 they have been invited by the Art Magazine Irreversible Art Magazine to represent Italy with a sculpture, during “Giants in The City” exhibition, Bayfront Park, Miami, Florida.
At the end of 2014, the artists have reached a new form of expression creating a series of paintings they have called "Harmonies": the subjects, once well delineated with solid colors, loose their boundaries and dissolve in the widespread light of an infinite space, in the harrowing search of a perfect union between immensity of destiny and human fragmented daily life.
In 2015 the French gallery Beddington Fine Art has dedicated a solo show to Delta N.A. presenting the Harmonies serie and their new sculpture "Rivelazioni".
With the sculpture Rivelazioni the couple of artists have started exploring the relation between Man and Universe giving birth to a new language and a more complex theory on the perception of reality called “Existential Mechanic”.
During 2016 and 2017, Delta N.A. showed their artworks in an itinerating project titled “A journey with heart”. The exhibition was focused on the theme of “Travel” intended as physical journey and as existential journey and described through the abstract lens of the Existential Mechanic. Some of the artworks are inspired by the connection between the human soul and the Universe while others offer a new perspective on the world, describing places visited by the artists during their travels.
"A journey with heart" was
exhibited in many art galleries and museums in Italy and abroad, including solo shows at the Institute of Italian Culture in Jakarta, Indonesia and at Palazzo Ottolenghi -Museum
of Risorgimento in Asti, Italy.
Delta N.A. have also created "Pope Francis Vineyad" an ink on paper artwork chosed to become the label of "Laudato" the wine born from Pope Francis vineyards in Portacomaro, Piedmont, Italy. The original artwork has been donated and permanently exhibited in Portacomaro, the village of Pope Francis family .
Actually the artistic duo is showing their new artworks focused on the possibilities for the humans to recognize their own potential and ability to realize dreams, connecting their perception of reality to a greater vision. With the serie of paintings "Life in the shadow" Delta N.A. are exploring a new dimension of their souls giving birth to spiritual artworks.
“The story of this couple of artists seems to come out of the pages of the "Elective Affinities" of Goethe, where an irresistible force of attraction is binding inextricably two people.” (Armando Brignolo, La Stampa).
