Maria Carla Mancinelli


Maria Carla Mancinelli was born in Rome, where she lives and works. Painter and sculptor, she created works by recycling waste materials, such as fabrics, wood, iron, paper, rubber, organizing them on mainly recovered supports. For years he has been following a personal journey on imaginary urban landscapes, at first producing a long series inspired by Italo Calvino's "invisible cities" and then a series of works entitled "The interference of the divine", landscapes immersed in a transcendent atmosphere traveled by glimpses of white. Her current research is focused in particular on the theme of light, which has become the central element of her works. She created two series of paintings entitled "The urgency of light" and "In the storm". They are dazzling works, where the landscape is rarefied and the explosion of light dominates every work of man and nature. Everything is on the edge of the abyss, to underline the precariousness of the human condition. She works in the research and experimentation of materials, cement, plaster, stucco, asphalt, bitumen, marble dust, through the use of always different techniques. One of her works was donated to the MAAM Museum in Rome.

In 2017 she formed, together with other artists, the Coala Group, Artists of the Lake Collective, painters and sculptors linked by a common feeling, who operate and work on the lands around Lake Bracciano.
