Monica Marioni is a mixed media artist living and working in Italy. Although Monica has always been interested in art (and even enrolled in art school) she also pursued another passion: get a degree in statistical science. Her love for science and mathematics got her to work with industrial techniques, something that enflamed her passion for art again. She started experimenting with different kinds of materials to create sculptures, later on selecting the canvas as her outlet.
The mixed media work Monica creates today is quite fascinating: monochrome colors, dark subjects and a lot of mystery lure you into the pieces. I love how Monica treats the material she works with, never quite sure if you’re looking at a painting, collage or manipulated photo.
Thanks for reading! What do you think of Monica’s work?
