ISABELLA NAZZARRI

Biography

Isabella Nazzarri (b. 1987 in Livorno, Italy) lives and works in Milan. Her practice is focused on painting as a daily gesture and essential, but at the same time always projected towards an elsewhere romantic and desired.
Through a slow process of choice, she attempt to give life to her personal epiphanies of travel.
Through travel and observation, Isabella Nazzarri produce a personal photo archive of the places she visit and then develop them into paintings through a practice that slowly moves away from photographic reality to reach the magmatic nature of the material. 
Her favorite subject is nature, in the completeness of its elements: visions where water merges with earth and air with fire, looking for that primordial vital energy that began the birth of the world.
Hers is a symbolic painting. The colors that the artist choose to use are always symbolic of what they mean. Paintings always begin with a dark background, then the colors become lighter and more vivid, and as the light advances, the figurative image gives way to a luminous vision, with undefined contours, where the color is never static nor is the form fixed. A scenario between here and a dreamed elsewhere.
