Giada Ferrari

Giada Ferrari's works cross the boundary between sculpture and photographic-derived images with a light and silent flight, paper butterflies reconstruct three-dimensional situations by traversing an orderly logical construction. Born in 1980, after classical art studies and a minor in Graphic Design, she was struck by Michael Murphy's installation works, where giant sections of different sizes compose faces suspended from nylon threads. Murphy's are installations that force the viewer to move in front of floating particles until the eye and mind construct the artist's intended image. Fascinated, therefore, by anamorphic works that allow the portrayed subject to be seen only from a certain angle, her research lands in works that take shape once the illusion of space is perceived, making the subject three-dimensional.

Indeed, Giada Ferrari's works are composed of small paper butterflies that reconstruct portraits through the orderly breakdown of figures, as in a contemporary entomological box. Her works often blur the line between photography and sculpture, and the artist investigates multilayered reality through a three-dimensional form of expression by pursuing the temptation to go deeper, to dive below the surface, to dig in. After spending 20 years working as a graphic designer in the corporate branding space, he began creating collages from magazines accumulated at home during the pandemic until he found a fusion of digital and cropping images.
Hundreds of butterflies distinguish the artist's works, which she calls "multidimensional": they, a symbol of rebirth in many cultures, are skillfully arranged in the subjects created by image processing and often extrapolated from advertisements ranging from the 1970s to the 1990s, to images captured from social media. However, butterflies sometimes give way to new cuts, as in the "icon" series where subjects from the Hollywood world are born from paper stars that make up the figures of stars.
