About the Solo Exhibition

Beauty, mystery and wonder are contained in every direction in which human beings decide to investigate the world, from the infinitely small to the size of the universe.

This beauty is full of questions and ethical problems that knowledge offers us from time to time.

A cell that duplicates itself: apparently a very simple gesture, which is the basis of life. And yet, we do not fully know how this happens and how it is possible to pass from a stone to a body.

Margherita Hack once proposed the hypothesis that the link between inanimate matter and life could be that animating is a characteristic of matter itself.

Niels Bohr, diving into the quantum and multidimensional world of particles, ended up saying that deep down we are something real constituted by something unreal, extraneous to our vision confined in the three or four dimensions that we perceive and inhabit.

Elisa’s works draw inspiration from this: from the microscope images, from the theories, from the questions that human beings has always placed themselves, from mystery, from an immanent vision of reality.

Elisa’s way of representing is a pictorial reworking and recently also sculptural and installative ones, of all this things, using the circle as the basic module.

The circle rings Elisa’s obsessiveness and is an archetypal figure that has multiple connections: the eggcell from which we were born is round, the opening through which we came into the world is roughly round, we find us on a spherical planet rotating on itself and in orbit around a spherical sun, when we want to draw an object whose shape you do not know you draw a circle, the first shape that a newborn recognizes is the circle, only for give some examples among many.

Elisa’s circles in paintings are handmade, she doesn’t use normographers, compasses or forms. In some paintings are left more imperfect in others, however, are more controlled.

Technical work is a constant tension between control and freedom of gesture. Imperfection is an important feature of her work.

In recent years Elisa has been experimenting with new materials and techniques, her work remains with a strong two-dimensional component, but the installation and the lights and shadows make it inhabit the space in a different and unexpected way.

Her works, on the other hand, come to life on their own regardless of her intentions. A geometric-abstract life. She calls them Bio-Abstraction.
