was born in Castello d’Aviano in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy, where she currently lives and works. She graduated from Teachers’ Training College in Sacile and then she began her career path always keeping alive her passion for painting.
She studied and worked on her own for years, experimenting a personalized mixed medium technique that portrays her ideas of painted visual art. The works are made with a sandy paste that that I first spread and manipulated with her hands, spatulas and other instruments and then colored. The choice of this medium is determined by her desire to create a “living” work with a strong communicative impact. The inspiration and motivation of her work comes from the world of Nature. She explores the relationship between Man and Nature that has always been in a precarious balance and difficult, now more and more complex and unbreakable and therefore requires attention and responsible choices and global involvement.
More recently, she met the taste and appraisal of collectors, art dealers and experts; important encounters that encouraged her to organize the first personal exhibition. It took place in Venice at the Primo Piano Gallery from 1 to 15 of May 2011. Since then, Mara has exhibited his work in several national and international locations.
“The world is color, sound, odor; the world is an infinite variety of images: the truth of the world is esthetic, and every moral consideration, every ethical principle has it most certain foundations in the esthetic.”Stefano Zecchi
