THE ARTWORK

The title is a metaphor referring to the surface of each planet of the solar system and to the movement of their orbit around the sun in a single direction. In that sense, every work is unique but conceived as a part of a group of paintings, reflecting the dynamic for which all the planets move through an individual orbit but making all together their revolution movement around the Sun, trying also to create new perspective of a world in terms of matters and colours. Furthermore, the series is made with pure pigments on wood, associated with other materials, such as iridescent mother of pearl, micro-crystals, experimenting also a pulverization effect.


THE ARTIST

Laura Santamaria (1976) is an artist living and working in Milan (Italy) and Lugano (Switzerland). 

Her practice, which includes painting, installations, site specific projects, is related to precarious states of impermanency through which she explores varied experimental creative processes. Her site-specific sculptures and installations often present to the viewer a parallelism between the micro and macro cosmos thus reflecting on systems and processes of interconnectivity.
Her work is represented in collections including the Artphilein Foundation Collection (Switzerland) and in a permanent installation at Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte (Italy). Her previous residencies include also Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, A Coruña, Spain (2017) and V-I-R ViaFarini in residence, Milan (2018).
Laura Santamaria is founder and curator of the collaborative project "Drawings from Lightning", an artist book made of a collection of drawings representing a statement of the artists’ thinking, an expression of an intellectual position which finds in the drawing practice its favourite language.
