Orsina Sforza

 

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.
