Orsina Sforza is an Italian artist born in Milan, now working in Rome. After graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute, Sforza worked for more than 25 years as a designer, focusing primarily on lamps - ‘Lights’ as she calls them - but also on sets, costume and furniture design.
Her most recent body of work is a collection of small oil paintings which explore the theme of geometry, using bold colours and metallic accents. Each small canvas displays a different intricate and sharp geometric design. When exhibited as part of a group, the works take on a new dimension, each pattern complementing and challenging the next. Sforza describes her oil paintings as her ‘personal mind maze’, helping her to investigate perception and its possibilities.
