Over the course of her career from the 1970s until today, sculptress Maria Cristina Carlini’s (Varese, 1942) intense production has included a great capacity for developing new aesthetic experiences, whether using ancient or modern materials. Her profound passion for materials has led her to investigate their intrinsic characteristics, the history of their human use over the centuries, their possible interactions with other substances and environments, and the way they behave over the course of time.
Carlini’s art generates an interaction between past, present and future, and her inspiration embraces myth and history. Her artistic awareness is intensified by the process of doing, which is simultaneously introspective and expansive, directed towards the emergence of the symbolic, but also projected into the configuration of future presences.
