MARIKA VICARI was born in Vicenza in 1979. Graduating with Honours in Painting (professorship Prof. Carlo Di Raco) from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice in 2003, she then graduated in 2005 in Design and Production of Visual Arts at the Faculty of Design and Arts at the Venice University of Architecture. The subjects of her works are filiform trees suspended in indefinite and dreamy mountain landscapes. Her technique, which is constantly evolving, has involved the production of works on poplar boards while, starting from 2019, she began experimenting on cotton paper with an increasing watercolour presence. This new medium adds grace to the forests she portrays by feeding the metaphor with the human being and its fragility, transience. She has studied and worked on site-specific projects with international artists, curators and photographers including: Hans Ulrich Obrist, Mona Hatoum, Antoni Muntadas, Armin Linke and Angela Vettese. Since 2000 she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Europe, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Canada and China. For years her works have been presented at sector fairs in Italy and Europe. She lives and works in Creazzo (Vicenza).
