About The Artwork

Mara lives and works in Italy in the province of Modena. She began to paint with determination from 1980 to 1995, continuing to study piano; doing some exhibits, personal and collective. She then resumed continuously from 2008. She didn't follow a formal artistic education , but her natural eclectic spirit, led her to express herself as spans a range of media including: installations of leaves-painted sculptures; words on silk panels; ceramic pots; pillow-talking objects; large oil paintings. Her colors are bright, bold, colorful and sunny; her style ranges from expressionism-abstract to figurative-revisited, maintaining a constant freedom of expression over time. She has exhibited in Italy and since 2018 has some collectors in the U.S. Extended history Over the years, I still continue to research and experiment with the same spirit of the beginnings, and now also with a deeper psychic awareness, about creativity: 'Keeping the creative current clear' (C.P.Estés). The subject matter of my work is often poetry and literature, that inspire me to represent, in different ways, some poetic compositions; but also songs, words, quotations, everything which captures me in one casual moment. My themes are: love, nature, feelings, sensations, thoughts. It leads me to a certain libertarian spirit, that aside from reflecting my indole, it born from the passion for Surrealism, understood as a philosophy of life: "poetry, art, love... the surrealist game..., the principle of pleasure on reality..." (Arturo Schwarz, Milano 2009). Reading A. Schwarz, I noticed that the artists I had always loved, all had a common thread leading to Surrealism. Apollinaire, J. Mirò, G.Moreau, Kandinsky, Chagall, Duchamp, they are all among the precursors of the Surrealism. I express myself in different ways: as painting lotus leaves with oil colour; or painting on large canvas portraits; representing a surrealistic poetry with dream images, a bit abstract and a bit ricognizable shape. I also like silk and make many collages with it, in mixed media; or even to create real 'talking cushions' in silk, like art objects that hide their sense in a literary story, to be discovered, inside them, just like ' surrealistic game'. I also like inks and water colour, used in informal style, but always representing a theme, a title, a wrote word, one formal element at least.
