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 recently a new series of works entitled "The interference of the divine", landscapes immersed in a transcendent atmosphere traveled by glimpses of light.

Her current research continues on the theme of light, through the use of ever-changing techniques, from cement, to plaster, to encaustic.

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.
