Orsina Sforza is an Italian artist working in Rome. After graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute, Sforza worked for more than 25 years as a designer and painter – focusing mainly on lamps, but also set, 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, with 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.
