LIGHTS / LUCI
Orsina Sforza is a painter.
She was born in Milan and lives and works in Rome.
Over the last two decades, Sforza has been creating luminous sculptures.
All are unique, hand-crafted pieces, using only the simplest materials - paper, hand-sewn fabric, common household sundries (rubber gloves, doilies, cleaning cloths, stitched oil paper).
Each light has its own title and gender.
The festive Marie Antoinette collection moves in sumptuous, unpredictable shapes echoing primitive sea creatures or giant meringues. Candid Nijinsky's immaculate petals glitter like a cold fire and The Bernini coruscate, shining a gentle light through their rich and colorful draperies.
