LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I am Maura Manfrin, aka MauMan, I live in Italy in Azzano Decimo
I’m a sculptor, I have developed my art indulging my creative nature, which is the basis of my life. As a girl I started working with iron fascinated by the paternal ability that forget it. I’ve never stopped since.
I “snooped” for several years in the artisan workshops and sculptors’ atelier to catch their techniques and secrets. My works express fatigue. Sometimes they start from a precise project, others times they slowly evolve.
Art for me is the means to become aware of myself. I deal with issues such as immigration, terrorism, the subjugation of women and the domination of religion.
My artistic production begins with artworks made of iron combined with wood, characterized by linear and geometric shapes.
My work evolves during a period of strong ferment focused on dualism and self-seeking, through the experimentation of new materials that are colored red, using cement and resinous plastics.
In my works predominate fragmented, disoriented, pierced and opposing figures, revealing a continuous internal struggle for their own salvation and emancipation.
In the last period I use clay combined with other materials that give to my work a new expressive freedom.
Sharing my passion with other artists would be a great honor and an incredible emotion.
