Laura Grosso


On the occasion of the Rome Art Week 2021 I present my most recent works in an event on October 29 and 30, curated by Tiziana Travani in the APS Spazio 44, in via Simeto 44, together with the painters Anthony Lombardi and Chryssis Vici. In any case, I will be happy to show my Studio with its modalities of participation to those who wants it, with my graphic works from the past year, on Tuesday October 26, from 10 to 21.

 

Laura Grosso was born in Bari in 1955 and lives in Rome, where she works as a painter. Her works have been exhibited in Italy, France, Germany, England, Israel, China, Japan and the United States, becoming part of private and public collections.

Her professional training began in the artistic high school in via Ripetta in Rome, then continued in the painting course conducted by Alberto Ziveri at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, where she graduated with honors in 1978.

In the mid-1980s she embarked on the path of painting en plein air, first in the Tuscan countryside around Florence and then in Chicago and Rome. She returns to deal with the figure in the early 2000s with the series "Humans", using the historical theme of bathers. In 2019 the Baart Gallery in Bari realizes a solo show with 40 works by her from her recent "People" series.

Through various projects, including the Chinese one "Following the path of Marco Polo" (2012 Hangzhou) and that of the Huber & Treff gallery in Iena "Plein Air Symposium" (2014 Bet Jala - Palestine; 2018 Toulouse - France), she takes part to collective experiences en plein air, during which she paints and exhibits in the places that she visits.

In her Studio, as part of the "Pittura lectio divina" program she conceived in 2007 for a group of students, she devoted herself solely to the search for Light, producing numerous works from life.
