Works by Elisabetta Cardella

Elisabetta Cardella, born 1980, works in Bologna (BO), Italy.

Her current work incorporates aspects of all of these different phases of technical and conceptual development. She uses digital mixed media to create portraits and creatures living in surreal atmospheres, suspended in time. Lightness and transparency are achieved through combining different kinds of organic forms and textures. She explores the relationship between the body and nature, feelings, emotions, instincts and primordial human weaknesses. She creates a dialogue between traditional art forms and new media, bringing contemporary imagination to revisit classical compositions.

Elisabetta Cardella, born 1980, works in Toscana, a Calci (PI). She studied traditional drawing, painting and sculptural techniques at the Istituto d’Arte. During that time she created large colorful paintings of figures and animals in imaginary settings.

During the University years she studied art history which she discreetly incorporates and references in her current work. She also learned the technique of gilding at Palazzo Spinelli, Firenze. From this grounding in traditional techniques she then moved towards digital media and developed work in the area of print and communications, specializing in Graphic Design e Multimedia at LABA in Florence, writing her thesis on Museum Communication. As a graphic designer she has collaborated on various events and museum exhibitions.
