Marta Spagnoli “Moltitudini”
The exhibition “Moltitudini” presents a body of works from 2022 in which the natural world remains at the centre of Marta Spagnoli’s interests. In these works she intends to highlight both the invisible and indissoluble differences and the secret connections that exist between all living things. The human, animal, vegetable body is explored through a metaphoric language before coming back as space, place and figure.
The new series Armor, consisting of 5 works painted with oil and ink on paper, is characterised by a texture of marks that entangles and incorporates vegetal structures like a capillary system – an intricate interlacing of blood or lymphatic ramifications capable of carrying nourishment from the centre to the extremities of a body: a natural filament that takes shape according to the artist’s needs. In the works on paper, the artist imagines large and elementary shapes that resemble those of plants, consisting of ribbed and fibrous elements typical of plant-related organs or vegetables.
