Program: [Art residence]
Italian artist Linda Carrara will work at the Art Residence in Kronstadt on a still life series in the technique of “3D painting”. Linda Carrara received her Bachelor’s degree in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan, Italy) and her Master’s degree in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent (Belguim). Winner of the “Award TERNA– Painting” in 2015. Linda Carrara participated in various exhibitions both in Italy and abroad. She also took part in the “MOMENTUM worldwide” residence (Berlin, Germany).
Linda Carrara is an Italian painter, working with different media. She is working on the topic of still-life representation for many years and tries to push this topic in a "mental direction". Connecting still life with decoration, trompe l'oeil and false marble, she is working with a dictionary that refers to painting as a subject of the work, and the represented object is just a simple excuse.
