Creating an interesting wrinkled, crumpled paper effect while using oil on canvas, Stefania Fersini recreates photoreal fashion magazine portraits as a comment on excess and waste. "I’m fed up of going fast, tired of the excesses and superficiality. I need to paint to slow down. I take time off, to meditate, to fast from what is too much. To contemplate beauty, where there is some. I copy because the solution to excess is not to create 'new'."
