Elisabetta Pizzichetti


BIOGRAPHY
Elisabetta Pizzichetti studied fine arts in Florence at the Istituto per l'Arte e il Restauro - Palazzo Spinelli and philosophy at the Università degli studi di Firenze. She began painting in the 1980s. At the same time she taught art in public and private schools in Florence and Ascoli Piceno to adults and above all children (a project on image/art education in elementary schools). She collaborated with graphic design studios, worked on exhibitions and at museums in Florence and in the province of Ascoli. For two years she worked for the Ascoli Cultural Department editing the first paperback tour guide of Ascoli where she also began a small business that handled museum services, primarily supervising educational workshops. One of the workshops gave rise to the beginning of a permanent museum for children in Spinetoli (Ascoli Piceno) that was inaugurated in collaboration with the responsible for the educational workshop at the Pecci Museum in Prato. In 2001 she moved to Rome where she decided to focus exclusively on painting. Between 2013 and 2014 she collaborated with the curator of the Incontro d'Arte Gallery in Rome, Alessandra Tontini. In 2016/17 she collaborate with the professor of Art M. Marinaccio in the school D. Manin for an artistic project on autism. In 2017 he joined the Arco Gallieno Cultural Association, which collects the artists residing in the Esquilino district.

Her work focuses on a preliminary phase of minimalist realism in which the object is fragmented and is always a marginal and eccentric vision of the composition. For some time, the idea of the fragmentary nature of objects has prevailed through the use of collages combined with painting and later with the use of other layers of material such as wax, resin, and photographs on acetate and glass.
