Marilena La Mantia


I was born in Vittoria (RG), but I live and work in Rome.  Shortly after birth my family moved to Rome where I graduated.  After that, I followed various courses in live drawing with the artist Luciano Santoro and in watercolor, oil painting and study of the nude with the artist Barbara Duran.  For a few years I attended her studio.  There my expressive language, centered on the representation of body gestural dynamics, mainly inspired by contemporary dance, was outlined and matured. My subsequent production draws inspiration from my frequent travels and I begin to represent the suggestions of cities, views and North African and Mediterranean landscapes.  In my current production, the evolution of the varied expressive experimentation focuses on different types of landscape atmospheres with particular reference to the aquatic element.  My works are present in numerous private collections.
