Oil Paintings as Crumpled Magazine Pages by Stefania Fersini
Stefania Fersini is an artist born in Aosta, Italy. She currently lives and works in Turin. She is part of Nucleo, a platform who administers contemporary art as well as new artists. In fact, it curates many exhibitions throughout the world. Crumpled Magazine Pages is part of her themes whe work on.
“The enlarged fashion pages bring back to real scale the characters and the scene in the foreground, creating a parallel world made of models, scenarios, icons of our society. Magazine papers picked from rubbish, with their twists and reflections, divert the attention from the scene.” she explains about her crinkled paintings. Perception of what is currently attractive by the society is questioned by her work. “[…] the products’ captions, they represent consumerism […]” she continues, and this of course is one of the current mottos of the society.
