Elisa Mearelli | Italy

Elisa Mearelli was born in Italy in 1984.

She studied at the School of Art in Urbino and graduated with a Masters Degree in Visual Design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino.

Being born at Fabriano, a town with a historic tradition of paper making, Elisa has felt a strong bond with this material since the beginning. She considers paper more than just a common object of everyday use, not only a support to cover with colour, but rather the true protagonist of the work of art.

Elisa’s idea is to leave an indelible mark on the paper by means of strong invasive action such as making holes and cuts in it. None of her works can be erased or covered over with colour. The paper has been cut, there is no going back; it has its own form, it tells its own story, like human skin. 

Through the medium of paper Elisa tries to create new walks and broader landscapes to discover, suggesting a new relationship between us and each other and between us and our world.
