Lili Maglione presents her collection of abstract landscapes, the Ottava series, which are The Colors of Your Mind & Soul.
The Ottava or octave tells us to play the indicated notes higher or lower than written or indicated. It is enough to be able to play, slowly, at your own tempo, a one-note bass in the left hand and one, two, or three notes in the right hand. You can begin to think of these notes as real voices. When there is a conflict between an old key or a new key, I try to favor the new. Bend a note and hold it. Be flexible. Enjoy the soundwaves, the harmony, and the eight colors of your mind and soul.

Ruth Tucker, Critic, Former Executive and Curator, Guggenheim Museum, NYC stated: "Maglione's expressions convey command, dynamism, and strength. These powerful and compelling paintings evoke sentiment and raw emotion as Maglione expresses her inner psyche and personal thoughts and dreams. Lili Maglione's paintings possess the power to bring the viewer to a standstill with it's arresting use of viseral qualities. Tracing the very soul of the artist seeping out onto the canvas, these poignant abstractions are filled with a breathtaking intensity."
