Biography

Exhibition catalogues

Born in Bologna, Italy, in 1974. Studied at the Liceo Artistico Arcangeli di Bologna (188-92), the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Bologna (1993-98) and at the Royal College of Art, London (1998-2001). Coming from Italy, and painting figuratively, it is not surprising that her work has been centred around architecture and architectural spaces, since so much of Western Europe’s built heritage owes its stylistic origins to the Classical, Renaissance and Baroque styles of buildings in Italy. Her recent work has continued to use prints and photographs as a base or background to her paintings. Using different supports of wood, damask and slate, she has collaged, painted over and reinterpreted these monuments of Rome’s architectural heritage, recalling their significance lost by time, the layers of memory garnered through the centuries, and the beauty of their ruins rediscovered by successive generations.

While at the Royal College of Art, she was awarded John Crane scholarships to travel to Italy and to the USA. She has since held solo exhibitions in Germany, and has been invited to be Artist-in-Residence at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (2001) and at Monash University, Melbourne (2007).
