Delicate Watercolors by Silvia Molinari
Italian artist Silvia Molinari lives in Fiorenzuola d’Arda (Piacenza, Italy), a country between the plains and the Piacenza hills, in a house surrounded by picturesque fields. Silvia’s artistic career includes the study and testing of the various techniques of painting, but it is perhaps through the watercolor minimalism she best expresses her talent. The combination of the simplest elements (water, pigment and graphite on paper), are the graphic signs of Silvia, and her favorite motifs – shrubs, leaves, flowers and plant fragments that seem to have slipped a moment before appearing on the paper.
Delicate splendor of watercolors by Silvia Molinari is inspired by the Egyptian papyri and Leonardo’s drawings. Silvia also refutes the prejudice according to which the paper is short-term: this paper will live several centuries, this paper costs more than a canvas.
Italian artist Silvia Molinari was born in Piacenza in 1976. She is a graduate of the Paolo Toschi Art Institute, decorative techniques department, in Parma. Silvia Molinari teaches drawing and watercolor through lectures and seminars and collaborates with several art magazines. Silvia Molinari is a permanent participant of numerous solo and group exhibitions in art galleries in Venice Biennale (2011), Art Fair 2012 in New York, Art Fair 2013 in Milan, J GO Gallery in Utah, and many others.
