DESCRIPTION

Contemporary art in Italy seems to be revisiting the movement of Art Povera.

Marta Bonaventura is the perfect example of a contemporary exploration of this movement. Her pieces are an intimate yet playful example of her life and cultural Italian experiences, interpreted into beautifully cohesive pieces that clearly portray her personality and artistic talent in a visual manner.


“Leaving Italy years ago and settling in Melbourne boosted my creativity.

My art is made of thoughts, dreams, souvenirs, everyday objects that fill my mind and that, since I was a kid have started to fill my canvases too.

Not only do my conscious thoughts inspire me but my dreamy world too.

What I do is basically translating a black-and-white dream into a colourful reality.

Layers of papers, glue, pictures, vinyl discs, memories and things that surround me and leave a mark on my imagination are turned into what you will find once you tightrope the thread that links reality to my own world.” 

– Marta Bonaventura
