Synkroniciti is ecstatic to welcome Italian Visual Artist Ambra Scali. 100Colori or One Hundred Colors (Cento Colori) is a land art installation inspired by California-based artist Sasha Duerr’s book Natural Palettes, a plant-based color guide exploring sustainable color palettes derived from nature. Ambra walked the Maremma Park along the Tuscan coast taking photographs as part of an Artist Residency with DUNE 2022 in Grosseto, Italy. She selected one hundred colors from the photos, blended them and painted them onto squares which she arranged in a grid on the dunes in the landscape. This sets in place a delightful hide-and-seek as we retrace the source of these colors, which are altered and braided by natural light. Ambra’s imagination and technical resources in identifying and blending color inspire a desire to value and preserve wildness. We feature 100Colori in “Wild,” along with an article about how it was designed and created, complete with dazzling photos of the Tuscan landscape.
