Italy / Female
Since Elisa Corsini completed her studies in arts, she has participated in a lot of exhibitions worldwide for 30 years. She was born in La Spezia, Italy, the source of her art creation. In her place, she has a window that is open to the boundless ocean and offers her various inspirations. Elisa can easily see the port and some neighboring small islands when she gets up every day. If she looks farther, she can also see the quarry and the Alps above Carrara. She is quite influenced by the ocean, the marble rocky shore and the huge stone pillars from Iron Age in the valleys nearby.When she moved inland Italy from the seashore, she started doing her research over mysterious history, a vague memory about ancient granite and religious ceremonies. Whether the materials she looked into were unearthed or still buried, asleep, they were amazing to her. She is now living near a white marble quarry in Carrara so that it is convenient for her to select proper stones for her monumental sculptures.She worked on ancient deities by sculpting raw marble stones into unique forms for her early works. Otherwise, she would work on statues of woman worriers by such contrasting skills as filling and hollowing. After that, she might work on animals from mythology. The sculptures we admire now at the gallery are her recent works. Her works are like an extravagant performance; they are vivid and present wisdom. A slight color of bronze or black marble glimmers from these rounded sculptures as if Elisa is expressing something huge and rich through her art works.
