LAURA MOSCA

by Ferruccio Capra Quarelli

Laura Mosca's artistic worlds are born like magic from conscious painting that merges with symbolism and experimentation; often these elements merge into a single entity. The materials, the fusing of objects, ropes, wheels, cloths, bottles and so on must not distract the observer's attention from the ideal subject of the work, from its meaning – that meaning which every work of art of Laura Mosca represents. By means of metaphors, the artist creates painted emotions, ideas that become concepts, in order to tell the story surrounding a quick moment, or a memory.

Laura captures the essence of art, the essence of light that melts between emptiness and fullness in a dialectic voyage through colours and shapes. Laura obtains this by exploiting the opposite aspects of elements, the metamorphosis that objects undergo once they become part of the work.

The boundary between painting and sculpture sometimes becomes very thin, following contemporary and avant-garde trends.

Pupil of grand Masters such as Giacomo Soffiantino and Giorgio Ramella, Laura Mosca likes to join art and daily life in a post-consumerism dialogue that, for this reason, becomes research.

The artist, busy with the creation of backdrops and with the experimenting process of design, creates each work as if it were a showcase of dreams and nature fused together, by means of melding resins, plastic, sand, clay, natural fibres, papier-mâché, metals, glues, copper or metal wires. All these materials give Laura's composition light, as well as being the representation of a further aspect of her painting acts and her continuous research for shapes and harmony

Laura Mosca is therefore an eclectic interpreter of modernity and the contemporary world who regards art as an instrument of communication and interior exploration, full of symbols and ideological concepts. Laura uses details and interior exploration as the ideal starting point to express her inner self. Laura does this with elegant creative balance and a punctual painting technique which, by means of carefully chosen contrasts of colour and material, shows her lively and multi-faceted nature, always looking for new horizons to explore.
