Nature? Of course Nature! Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists. For Anita, too, it is an inexhaustible source for her inspiration. Read more…

Feelings and characters

Feelings and characters, rendered minimalist.
Over and over, hand-built in different stages, waiting, creating compositions and finding balance, over and over again. A sculpture should be well shaped, because even if you put your most beautiful color on it, when the shape is bad, the beautiful color won’t help.
Feeling the materials, taking time for this. I I call it respecting the clay, because when I work too fast the clay wraps itself up, disagrees and spits out its anger in a thousand pieces in the oven.

Beautiful colors. Pixelism!

Beautiful colors of nature in all seasons. Early in the morning, the freezing temperatures hanging in the air as the sun rises. It gives a prism to colors in the sky, or the sun, which tries to break through the nebula. The many shades of green in spring and the splendour of blossoms, summer by the sea, autumn with all shades of reddish-brown. Winter, a residual rose buried in the snow. Her paintings are memories, which, like photographs, contain thousands of pixels, built up by squares of about 1 cm by 1 cm. Pixelism! Labor-intensive but at the same time soothing, and unique.

Borders Art Fair 2023 – during 18th Venice Architecture Biennale

ITSLIQUID Group, in cooperation with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association


during the same period of the 18th Venice Architecture Biennale.

The festival focuses on the concept of “boundaries,” between the soul and the body, man and urban space, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people experience them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every person lives in a world in which limits and boundaries define his attitude and behavior, limit freedom and create a sense of alienation. Man responds by breaking down barriers and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities,” where differences create new opportunities rather than forming social barriers.

Humanity is living together at a distance to stay closer: the new invisible borders are creating new ways of conducting daily life, new human connections and rethinking shared spaces and entire cities. BORDERS ART FAIR consists of 3 main events: HYBRID IDENTITIES, SECRET SPACES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.
