Clara Del Papa

Clara Del Papa was born in Venezuela. Architect, urban planner, interior and garden designer, she grew up and trained in South American artistic and cultural circles. Since the 1990s she has specialized in goldsmith working techniques, studying gemology, embossing, setting, enamels. Symbols and suggestions, tastes and smells, distant landscapes and traditions coexist in his creations, re-imagined in antique silver, gold, bronze which are integrated with resins, earths, sands. Today she lives and works in Italy where she creates sculptures to wear, for Clara metal corroded by natural agents such as balsamic vinegar leads her to imitate the wooden surface in all respects and to bring to mind the dense intertwining of branches or even a nest. His research is accompanied by a touch of magical realism that transfers a careful technique and a profound reading of the ambivalent demiurge-metal relationship into poetry, where the latter lets itself be shaped, but in turn suggests shapes and finishes.
