Sacred Imperfect Nature
Isabella Nazzarri, an Italian mixed-media artist and sculptor, uses a vast range of materials, techniques, and forms to create strikingly natural and colorful visuals. Her works carry a deeply organic flavor, endearingly reminiscent of geodes, life, and its imperfect sacredness.
With a keenness to explore with her creations, Nazzarri has climbed into a deliciously limitless world of fruitful opportunity. “I like to experiment with many different matters.” She has always felt calling towards the vocation of art which guided her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, and later in Milan. Studying in renowned artistic territory inspired Isabella, she found her style as a result of studying fresco painting, where the painting must be finished in a day, with abstract and expressionist themes. Fresco guided her to create abstraction with immediacy; “I had never had this kind of approach before and I was happy to see that the result was the most beautiful picture I had ever made.”
“My work evocates nature and its double connection with people; on one side there is the fascination and the perfection of nature, on the other the alienation and the fear.”
Isabella Nazzarri comments on the challenges of being an artist in society today, “compared to the past, there is much more information and much more visual information, this can be a problem, like every saturated thing.” Regardless of the dense availability of art today, she manages to capture something strikingly original, poignant and delicately beautiful with her earth-inspired visual representations.
