Maria 16

Maria 16 uses mainly Photography to express her feelings and thoughts/dreams.

She prefers to use very basic photographic material and to keep things technically quite simple.

She is very interested in “ARTE POVERA” and its philosophy:

“Arte Povera” designates a kind of art, which, in contrast with the technologized worlds around it, seeks to achieve a poetic statement with the simplest of means. This return to simple materials, revealing laws and processes deriving from the power of the imagination, is an examination of the artist’s own conduct in an industrialized society (…) A way of “dropping out” which is by no means a deniel of society, but which instead asserts a moral claim: the subjectified sensibility in its objectified authenticity reflects a natural recollection of environmental phenomena, both universal and individual.”
