Fiorella Bologna is an highly appreciated artist, who was born in 1956 in Italy.
She studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara and graduated as a qualified teacher of History of Art and Design. At the academy she attended a course in Visual Arts taught by Omar Galliani, and she built her graduation thesis on poetry in contemporary art with references to him and his art.
Since 1997, Fiorella has been participating in numerous solo and group exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad, winning recognition and numerous awards. Her work is included in the prestigious Battolini Collection at the Centre of Modern and Contemporary Art in La Spezia.
Fiorella loves creating her art in many different materials, techniques and media. You’ll find her work ranging from paintings and drawings in oil, acrylic, wax, pastel and pencil, sculptures, photography, poetry to larger installations. Her works are based on the essence of the material and chromatic details, e.g. in her sculptures and installations Fiorella prefers simple materials such as paper and used fabrics, and proper organic elements such as grass, soil and seeds.
Her paintings often refer to an intimate, playful and childlike ancestral memory, melting together in a soft sentimental atmosphere. Collage and written words appear frequently, at times in an explicative way but at other times simply as a graphic manner, either way the words or phrases gives life to the poetry of the paintings.
