About

Visual artist, Italian. Lives and works between Milan and Paris. 
Colors, emotions, and psychology interact in her works to form a visual poem meant to stimulate the viewer both emotionally and intellectually. Her practice is mainly focused on the photographic medium with a visual art approach, mixing photography with elements of psychology and anthropology. She is interested in involving tridimensional aspects into her practice as she is investigating the possibility to overcome the limit of the photographic medium and transcending the surface of photography. She works with abstraction, colours and symbolism to translate emotional aspects into “visual synesthesias”. In her projects she questions how subtle and immaterial elements such as empathy, psychology and emotions could be conveyed and translated through photography and visual art.
