Signori’s paintingsare haunting. The poetic nature of her choiceof subject and the profound sensitivity shebrings to her work is outstanding. She isa painter with a soulful connection to hersubject. Her approach is best described as apoetic realism.Indeed, Signori is a painter of luminosity. Hermost recent works are quite large and richwith deep, jewel-like color. She says that toachieve such luminescence she must workin thin layers of paint, allowing each layer todry before the next is applied. In this way, thecolors come to resonate with one another andproduce an overall depth of hue. Like an opal,each color vibrates from its separate plane.The effect is a world of beauty, glowing frominside the painting.APRIL 2012 ■ galleries ■ 19B R A D L E Y B L V DST ELMO"W O O D M O N TW I S C O N S I N A V EM!L E L A N DEAST - WEST82 1146
