Arielle Tesoriero is a painter who creates bright, large-scale, contemporary portraiture exploring women's conflicts with eating and sexuality. She uses a variety of medias, including photography, video, and collage. Food represents physical and emotional nourishment, objects of both dread and intense desire. Food, sex, love, and power fulfill needs of attachment, affinity, and belonging. Tesoriero examines individual expectations of happiness, self-esteem, morality, and beauty through scholarly research combined with her own poetic, bold narratives.
Tesoriero is also a singer and songwriter. Her debut EP Dear Diary was released on June 1st 2020. Dear Diary combines both literary and visual elements unique to Tesoriero's creative intuition, deciphering her vulnerable, eccentric character. She delivers the chilling realities of relationships, lost loves, and mental health, unearthing our tendencies to lose our self of identity when battling approval from others.
