Artist's Statement / Bio
Award winning artist Federica Campagnari successfully incorporates the abstract imagery using different media and styles which allows her to create visual elements that interact within an imagined open space.
“ My artwork is an extension of my emotions, " she says. "It is a dreamlike dimension in which there are no rules and anything is possible."
In her work, Federica Campagnari is inspired by personal life changes, a major relocation, and cultural differences. As a result, her compositions embody landscapes, lines and shapes that can bring to mind letters and words, and hints of human figures, a reference to her early work.
A vital source of inspiration comes from years of experience in stained glass art and textile designs.
Originally from Italy, Federica Campagnari has her paintings displayed in Italian and American venues including at the County Art Museum of Los Angeles, Art Rental Gallery.
Federica Campagnari is a member of South Bay Contemporary Gallery, SoLA, Los Angeles, CA, and of the Art Council, Huntington Beach Art Center, Huntington Beach, CA
In the “Transmigrations”, Drawings and Chromatic Series, Federica Campagnari draws inspiration from recent events of mass immigrations which reflect her personal experience of moving to another country. Using ink, pencil, and gouache she depicts a space with no boundaries where shapes of human forms evoke transitions, departures and arrivals, displacement and adaptation, and a sense of suspended moments.
