Monica Maffei

Categories:
Birthplace: Varese
The art of Monica Maffei  springs from a special sensibility and finds its expression in compositions  characterized by a subtle lyricism.
Tones and understones combine with elegance on the canvas  with a succession of shades and mutual contaminations, leaving vague human forms emerging occasionally.
The artist  masters the canvas with an overlapping of pigments and signs, and, at the same time, reveals and conceals her own subjects, which, in the end, result to be surrounded by a mysterious aura.
