The world narrated by Comes is about everyday heroes whose dignity is expressed through the courage to live, despite joy and pain; it is a kind reality, an acceptance of life not with resignation, but with the courage of a kind of humanity that has in itself the capability to evolve. This communicative ability is connected to a talent to traslate in sign the human impression, through a kind of painting that alternates, to the great importance of drawing, an exquisite chromatic search. Lilliana Comes’ ancient and yet modern reality is a light and fascinating suspension of everyday life, so that the soul can understand, through the eyes, how reality, however critical, carries with it the importance of human beings.
