Sara Montani loves experimenting, and approaches different techniques; from painting to photography, from sculpture to installation, or incision.
The matter is fundamental to understanding the concept she wishes to express in the work.
Her "mono-prints" are collages of papers, fabrics, lace, resins, glues, and stucco. The surface of the image is moved, and gives a sense of dynamism and thickness. The vision of thickness becomes emotionally deep because the artist invites the viewer to reflect, to look for the dialogue between matter and idea.
