Info


GIORGIA LO FASO  (b. 1993, Italy) is an artist who is interested in the visual possibilities that mediums and languages can generate, especially in the discourse of painting.

In her work, Lo Faso studies the ambiguous relationship between the time of the self and the time of the physical world. Her use of medium includes monochrome etchings, large-scale woodcuts, macro-oil and watercolor paintings; often incorporating photographic and video documentation, and adopting conservation techniques.

Lo Faso holds a BA and an MA in Graphic and Chalcographic Techniques from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, Italy 2017 and 2019, resp., and obtained her MA Fine Arts at the HKU, University of the Arts Utrecht, the Netherlands (2022).
Currently based in Utrecht.

FIGURINE (2019)

Series of 42 watercolors painted onto the walls of my studio;
Torn off, and mounted onto linen canvases; 6.3x11.2cm each 20x30cm

/ 2019
Installation overview:
Site specif project in my studio, Turin, IT


Trading cards have become the paintings of the pictures in my smartphone, always reproduced in the same dimension of the vision: 6.3x11.2cm (size of my mobile phone).
Trading cards have become the watercolours painted on the wallsof my studio in Turin, and they have regained their status of Trading cards when I tore them up.
These images have always been Little Figures!
While I became first painter, then I improvised myself as a restorer.

Photographs of me which have been taken by others were subsequently painted according to the size I could see them in (dimensions of my mobile phone, 6.3x11.2 cm), in a cycle of 43 watercolours frescoed on the walls of my studio, finally torn and placed on linen canvases measuring 20x30 cm each.
