Creativity Oggetti presents
"SENTIERI NEI BOSCHI"
From 3 March to 2 June
"SENTIERI NEI BOSCHI" Paths, forms and reflections around nature.
A characteristic aspect of Confortini's artistic work is that of his strong empathy with the natural world: an emotional sensitivity that integrates with his personal manual processing of the lands, but through a careful analysis of his linguistic and operational tools it is also charged with an innovative conceptual approach.
ELISA CONFORTINI She is a Brescia-born artist, able of rising deep reflections on various aspects of real life through works conceived with remarkable creative finesse and emotional impact. Approached to the world of ceramics in 1996, Elisa Confortini opened his first studio in 1999 after gaining experience in various internships; among all, very important for her was the one attended at the studio of Enrica Negri, a Milan potter. Pivotal year for Confortiniʼs profession was the 2008, when she moved to Genoa where, under the guidance of the sculptor Adriano Leverone, she was able - between 2008 and 2010 - to learn important basics about stoneware and high temperature glazes. Thenceforth she develops a very unique creative spirit with varied joints and a strong footprint in conceiving compositional systems and original processing with a personal language with evident simplifications of syntactic elements. We see the development of very specific works such as those of the Botanica, Entomologica, Erbe and Coleoptera series. In her works the artist offers reflections with a strong critical value towards certain attitudes of society. She ably succeeds in translating, through right calibration forms, a orientation full of pathos and anguish, that aims at obvious defence of the right to exist, both for human beings and animals, avoiding harsh tones for free.
