STEFANIA PUNTAROLI

Visual Artist | Arte contemporanea in movimento

Biography


My work accompanies through the maze of imagination and kaleidoscopic vision, which all in all reflects a precise sequence and an exact order. The work fits into respect for the historical tradition, using a personal trait par excellence. The imprint of the Roman cabbage on the surface, manipulated or otherwise freely interpreted. The general impression is that this primary element, because of its specific form in nature, and its correspondence to the Fibonacci numerical sequence, which is a fractal in shape, is able to collect different aspects of the inventory, intended to a constant research of the origins throughout the feeling of nature, contained in an exact structural geometry.
This is similarly a refined balance between Nature and Culture , which is the primary matrix that brings out the radical choices of the artistic act , which I declines through the codes of Engraving , Painting, Photography and Performance .

Born 1972 in Prato, Italy. Lives and works in London and Pistoia.
