'Per l'avventura I' is an exquisite and colorful abstract painting signed by the American artist Alayna Rose. The painting is a quintessential example of her work, borrowing the language of the Abstract Expressionists imbued with the bright color palette of the twenty-first century. The composition is dominated by Frankenthaler-esque fields of green, magenta, yellow and white, each translucent and layered one atop the other. At the same time, scattered throughout these fields are small Twombly-like scribbles and glyphs urging to add semiological meaning to an otherwise non-representational work. Indeed, the only recognizable and decipherable glyphs in the composition are the letters of the artist's signature itself, resting in the lower left corner.
