Anna Marzuttini (Gemona del Friuli, Italy, 1990) lives and works between Venice and Udine. From 2011 to 2018 she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice attending and participating in several initiatives of Atelier F. Here, in 2018, she obtained the Second Level Diploma in Visual Arts and Performing Arts. In 2018 she was one of the artists in residence in Bevilacqua la Masa’s Foundation Ateliers. In 2019 she won Art Tracker/Lucca Art Fair prize, Combat Prize, in the painting section.
Her artistic research develops mainly through painting, drawing, and sculpture. In particular, drawing is for her the primary tool of investigation and study but it also can become the protagonist in the finished work. Through drawing, she investigates the shapes of the nature of the places that interest her.
Nature is for her an immense repertoire of shapes that she can study by synthesizing on different levels and then reassembling to create a personal vision of the environment she’s working on.
The forms then become a structure for the sign and the color: they allow them to develop paths and take on meaning. Her research develops around the theme of the wild as something spontaneous, uncontrollable, bristly, inhospitable. These are the main characteristics she searches for in nature and then translates through her practice.
