FASOLI MARICA

Marica Fasoli was born in Bussolengo (Vr) in 1977. After graduating in 1995 as a teacher of art at the Liceo Artistico Statale di Verona section Accademia, in 1997 specialized in the Responsible for the Conservation and Maintenance of artistic artefacts on wood and canvas with honors from the Santa Paola Institutes of Mantua.  

Since 2002 she gradually abandoned the activity of restorer, devoting himself increasingly to the main passion, painting, measuring himself above all with reproductions of the masterpieces of the past, also obtaining numerous certificates of esteem and recognition in the local press. 

From 2006 she embarks on an autonomous journey that leads her to concentrate her expressiveness and artistic research in the hyperrealist figurative field, research that led her to the formulation of two distinct expressive strands (the ‘invisible people’ and the ‘3d Boxes’), both focusing on the concept of ‘content / container’. 

Since 2015, her continuous research has led her to break away from a figurative and didactic representation of reality. The objective was achieved through a process of creation / destruction focused on the manual construction, in many cases very complex and laborious, of origami, which, after being created, are “deconstructed”. 

The final result is therefore no longer purely interpretable exclusively on a figurative basis, indeed. The figurative aspect definitely goes into the background, for the benefit of a multiplicity of combinations such as kinetic and concretist movements. Using the shades of gray as a chromatic scale, but not only, making interventions with pure colors typical of concrete art. 

These interventions in turn refer to the geometric shapes suggested by the work itself or more often to the Fibonacci succession, whose relationship between the numbers comes very close to the golden number, that is to say the harmonious relationship par excellence.
