Letizia Cariello once mentioned that she identified with the boy who can see dead people in the film The Sixth Sense. Not that Cariello can see ghosts, but, like most people she’s afraid of the ones that haunt her unconscious.

Although Cariello’s work deals with emotions and fears, it looks extremely controlled: pristine, flawless, almost affected in its attention to detail; like a polished and transparent surface beneath which uneasy depths lurk.
