The artist turns her gaze to the concept of Time: it is the time of rust that oxidises on metal, scratches it, scars it; it is on this skin that the artist intervenes and delicately insinuates colour, covers the wounds. It is in this dialogue of memories that Leone builds her own visionary narrative, where a painful Nature demands a pause, as these works whisper, inviting us to stop, give time to one’s thoughts, and let dreams surface. Taking one’s time means allowing oneself the privilege of a glance, giving time to art to write one’s own story. An insurgent gesture to bring forth a new utopian thought, a new enchantment.
