Daniela Carletti was born in Ferrara, northern Italy, and started to be interested in art at the end of the seventies. That was the time when she began to attend a painting, watercolor, sculpturing and graphic school, whose teachers were important artists of her town. She has experimented with different materials like: clay to realize terracotta sculptures similar to the ones of Henry Moore, resin and fiberglass for more abstract sculptures, wire and plaster for lighter vaguely humanlike figures. Around the nineties, she started to make reliefs with plaster. Since then, it was the nature in its most humble aspect that became the main source of her artwork, a nature of reeds and wild herbs, you find along rivers and ditches. She picked up and through a personal procedure reproduced them with special hard plaster on tarlatan fabric. After many solo and group exhibitions, in 2007 she participated in the 4th International Symposium of painting in Odessa (UKR) and exhibition at the Museum of Eastern and Western Art.In year 2008, after having attended a graphic school (Laboratori Liberi) near Urbino, Italy, she experimented many different techniques on Japanese paper.In year 2011, she was invited to the Venice Biennale, 54th International Art Exhibition, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi.

The interior Design, MilanCloister Galleria d’Arte, FerraraShe says of her work: “I think I have nostalgia for a time when human beings lived in direct communication with nature. I can’t explain in any other way my compulsive need to represent it.In all my artworks I just follow my inspiration, there is not much planning; the different materials I use suggest the path I follow. In the various steps of processing, all senses are involved, acting in synergy with the mind and the heart, showing me where to go. Creating an artwork is like making a trip to the mysterious and attractive unknown.”
I'm a italian painter and sculptor, and art is my life.
