Stefania Fersini is a painter based in Torino, Italy. She is part of Nucleo a collective of artists and designers. Her wrinkled paintings are a critique of a world that produces more than we need.
Stefania explains her work by saying, “The enlarged fashion pages bring back to real scale the characters and the scene in the foreground, creating a parallel world made of models, scenarios, icons of our society. Magazine papers picked from rubbish, with their twists and reflections, divert the attention from the scene. Together with the products’ captions, they represent consumerism and appearance. The contrast between the depth of the scene and the surface of coated paper produce a continuous change of perception.”
