1977 Catania, Italy

Samantha Torrisi graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Catania in 2002. Lives and works in Sicily, at Mt. Etna’s slopes.

Her artistic research is based on the contamination between different expressive and communication media. In her works she reclaims, through painting, images derived from photography, cinema, from video clips and video games, television and personal video footage. Her paintings represents images of metropolitan life caught and fixed as frames. In her still-image tries to return to the viewer a vision of human existence in constant research, transformation, in relation to today’s society and Nature, with particular attention to environmental issues. She collaborated on several multidisciplinary projects and participated in numerous art fairs, group and solo exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
