My blue is a collection that talk about the passion for analogical photography, printing and textile design. The beauty and the secret of cyanotype photographic technique is contained in the elegant and deep color blue. A particular and fascinating color, similar to indigo but with a thousand of shades; a blue that convey calm and deepness, suspended in the time, elegant and refined.
Mission of the project: to tell. Tell about a color, a technique but also a story, my story.
A story made up of moments immortalized by an old, worned analogical camera and my mother's myopic eye. But perhaps this is also what makes them so beautiful to my eyes: the imperfection, the crooked frame, the out of focus, the naturalness in the look of the subjects. Each photograph tell a story and a suspended infinite moment.
Telling about a woman in blue, but not only, it is a collection that talk about simple and geometric shapes: the squared shapes and straight lines of the square or rectangle that bring back to a serious and formal atmosphere in contrast with the sweet and soft lines of the circle and oval that refer to a lively and carefree look. The shape that becomes three-dimensional and wraps the body like a container, a box. Geometric shapes sided by irregular shapes with a highly handcrafted look obtained with the macramè technique.
Born in Crema in 1994. Lover of art and music, I attended the Bruno Munari Art School in Crema and in my free time a musical institute learning solfeggio and classical guitar.
I graduated with full marks in painting at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. During my studies I showed interest in more traditional painting styles such as acrylic, watercolor, fresco, pastel, charcoal, etc... but also, for graphic subjects such as: art printing, photography, woodcut, screen printing and illustration. Often following the design line of the artist's book or notebook.
Often my projects are based on artistic or literal quotation (being also a lover of reading, the completeness of my projects is often linked to the written word: quotes from novels, simple sentences or poems).
In my free time I often dedicate myself to the creation of handcrafted works such as bags, notebooks, T-shirts, etc. painted by hand or with graphic techniques (cyanotype and xylography).After graduating, my interest shifted to the world of fashion and textile design, so I attended an online masters in graphics and fabric design, learning how to best use the main Adobe programs such as Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator; and a basic tailoring course. Today I am attending the second year of the Biennium in Fashion and Textile design at NABA.
