|MARIA ANTONIETTA MAMELI
Italian, b. 1969
Mameli describes her work in the following statement: "By cutting everything off, I remove every possible element of distraction to focus on reality and surrounding emotional life through a telescope, so that space and time become non-existent. By reducing the subjects to minimal size, I force the view to get closer to my work not only physically, but also emotionally. I created my aesthetic space where the facets of human condition are under the sharp scrutiny of my lenses."
A self-taught artist, Maria Mameli trained as a lawyer before she took up photography. She has exhibited at the Museum Marino Marini, the Italian Cultural Institute in Washinton D.C. and has had two solo shows at Bruce Silverstein Gallery.
