ARTIST STATEMENT   
         

My work is about human connections punctuated by physical distance and separation by time. Thoughts and observations about universal human characteristics create the impulse to make an objec and in this way the work is a visual footprint of my thinking. My paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and installations explore light, space, and layering, while visually alluding to the power of human relationships, the passage of time, and my place within that continuum. Objects such as rope, thread, paper, wax, and lace, together with repetition of line and the use of words - or the asemic gesture - often find a home in my art. These elements are metaphors for human connections and memories held together over time. My works are enduring conversations about relationships - both literal and visual - while simultaneously celebrating the fortitude of the human spirit.

BIO

Artist, Milisa Galazzi, is best known for her three dimensional hand sewn shadow drawings, her printed works on paper, and her richly layered abstract paintings. Her artwork highlights the interrelated forces of the physical world particularly when these associations are punctuated by substantial distance or separation by time. Through subtle visual layering, Galazzi acknowledges the passage of time as well as celebrates the power of human connections over generations. Her work is held in private international collections as well as public collections in the United States such as Women and Infants Hospital and the Women's Medicine Collaborative in Rhode Island. She exhibits nationally in solo and group shows in both galleries and museums. Galazzi presents talks at national and international conferences such as the International Encaustic Conference and the National Art Education Association Conference in New York City. Her artwork has been featured and reviewed in Surface Design, FiberArts and ArtScope magazines as well as in books such as, "Contemporary Cape Cod Artist: On Abstraction," and "Paper + Wax, Techniques in Handmade Paper and Encaustic” as wells as, "Encaustic Art in the Twenty First Century." Galazzi was 'boat schooled' as a child while she and her family traveled and lived aboard their thirty-one foot trimaran sail boat hand built by her father. She received an MA with Honors from the Rhode Island School of Design were she exhaustively researched the educational effectiveness of community-based art education settings and her findings are published by Harvard University Graduate School of Education, Project Zero Press, 1999. In addition, Galazzi holds a BA from Brown University where she studied Studio Art with minors in Women’s Studies and Cultural Anthropology. She attended Studio Art College International (SACI) in Florence, Italy and graduated from Phillips Academy, Andover. Her broad education directly informs the content of her art making. Galazzi works full time in her studio in Providence, Rhode Island and on Cape Cod in the summer months.
