Maria Grazia Zanetti born in Novara, I completed studies that have nothing to do with my passion
for drawing and painting and therefore I am self-taught.
During my research phase I quickly gained the awareness that mine
way of expressing myself artistically can only be based on total instinct.
Any approach other than the instinctive one generates an insurmountable wall for me
that doesn’t allow me artistic expression. Hence the choice of abstract painting
as my preferential though not exclusive way.
Everything must start from an idea or rather from a suggestion originating from one
real or imaginary vision and it must arrive on the canvas without anything
frapponga: no logical process, no rationality, no superstructure
Only instinct and spontaneity allow me to concretize the work.
