Erika Marchi, painter born in ’73, lives and works in Carpi (MO).
The artistic training takes place thanks to the work he does for the great Italian clothing brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Extè, Ferrè, Twinset.
Erika Marchi’s work has been described as innovative and tastefully refined, an art that becomes revelation from another dimension from another situation, something that within a mental space reveals itself to others and communicates to others.
His works are oils developed on canvas or on paper in which the colors of white and black dominate, interrupted by small strokes generally red.
The most figurative are called “Tangles” or “Tangles” as if they were skeins of thread that form figures of which the red dot represents a hypothetical sealing wax that blocks the last thread. They are works performed with precision and often convey feelings such as love for the family, for music and for art, but also more iconic figures.
The most abstract are called “Labyrinths” because playing on the shadows of black, they hide spaces and figures that come out as the works are observed. They are more instinctive works, focused on the sense of the sign which is often used as a means of transmitting important messages.
