About Flavia Lovatelli

Art is the unspoken language that, which moves us, connects us, breaks the borders and unites us. I try to create work that evoke emotions at the sensory level, fascination, perplexity, curiosity, admiration, and the intense desire to touch it, feel the textures, densities, temperatures. My work is created with strips of recycled paper collected from magazines, flyers and papers found in my daily life. I am intrigued with the colors and textures in everyday printed matter. Coiling is a very tedious and time-consuming process; it takes countless hours to roll enough strips of magazine pages into coils to create anything of substance.
