The Italian born painter Lorella Paleni focuses on a series of bizarre and ethereal topics in her New, Drifting, Ashes and Out There collections. Imaginary states of mind and the transcendence of time are both critical to her visionary undertakings, one that is best described by her catch phrase that is "Dreams are private, where creativity does not hold limits."

One of the themes that remains consistent throughout Paleni's work is that of humanity. Naked bodies and still portraits are found alongside images of foxes, large metallic structures and baby lambs. These twisted depictions are also notably geometric, seen by way of jagged vertical lines, all of which have been carefully strewn amid Paleni's illustrations of limbs and craniums.
