This is the latest series that I am currently working on – is called “Floating Dreamers” and it’s focused on my research on patterns and abstractions.
Floating Dreamers is a series about my constant research on pattern and colour combinations. The title of this body of works is also connected to my fascination for the past, and the necessity to keep it “suspended” in time and space.
I didn’t have time to post all the pieces that I have done, but you can check what is available in my website below. On my Youtube channel I am also posting the work in progress of these pieces, so you can enjoy the process 🙂
Here’s another stack of works done a few months ago from the series “Mongolfiere” (Hot-air Balloons).
Mongolfiere (Hot-Air Balloons) is a sketchbook filled with altered vintage portraits ready to fly. I wanted to imagine the extension of each photo as an imaginary abstract world. Each subject represents a floaty and colourful balloon that walks freely into time and space.
See the whole collection below and let me know what do you think!
I have been lucky enough to have met in person Maliheh Zafarnezhad in her studio. She is an incredible talent and also an amazing woman. Maliheh is Iraninan and Irish, and her photo transfer collages are a celebration of her rich multicultural history.
These are a small selection of her latest works on wood blocks and ceramic plates. they are part of her series The New Normal and Objects Of Memories. I enjoy these sculptural explorations of her style. Go check her website and Instagram to see more of her works (the pieces on canvas are also stunning!).
Enjoy the enchanted works by the Canadian artist Julie Liger Belair. I love the way she also combines paper cuts with sculptural compositions made with polymer clay.
These are few words about how she describes her art practice: Fairy tales, legends, dreams and the surreal worlds they evoke have always been a part of the human experience; a way to make sense of our surroundings and explain our fears. As a child these captured my imagination, weaving themselves into the fabric of my personality. Because of this I am today a collector at heart, constantly collecting fragments of ideas and objects, each with their own little stories to tell. Combining them in different ways in my work, they form new narratives and meanings.
This is a mini series created for the Februllage challenge on Instagram, I had so much fun making them 🙂
For this project I used vintage and new paper cuts, combined with acrylic pens and dotty stickers for the decorations. The whole collection is on sale in my website, enjoy!
About the series “Februllage” is an online challenge organised during February 2021 from the Scandinavian Collage Museum and Edinburgh Collage Collective. The project was to create every day of the month a piece following up a specific daily topic, using your personal collage technique. I wanted to give to this challenge a go, mixing up my decorating style with some paper cut interventions.
I enjoy the hand embroidered collages on retro postcards from the textile artist and designer Francesca Colussi Cramer. Like me, Francesca is an Italian expat now based in UK, and we have a huge love for all the things vintage in common.
I truly love how she combines a contemporary style with these images, and the colour palettes are always on point as well. You can also find her on Instagram.
