The artist’s craft is to transform materials, ideas and emotions

The creative process of artmaking is intrinsically transformative:

  • the transformation of materials;
  • the transformation of conventional techniques used during artmaking;
  • the transformation of the artist’s original idea through the dynamic interplay of creating art;
  • the transformation of emotions that surface and are modified during the creative process.

In a period of uncertainty and global crisis, artistic expression allows us to transform negative energy into positive energy: “… seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space”, Calvino, Invisible Cities

The exhibit includes art work by the "Bottegari": Sergio Bersani, Marco Giammetti, Carol Hendrickson, Sandra Mei, Katja Reichert with the participation of Stefania Cecchetti
