Italian artist Ilaria Bochicchio started her career as an illustrator and graphic designer. In 2014, she moved to painting, commencing an investigation into the female body and the complex iconography surrounding gender and physicality.
The works shown here, entitled #chambre Scilla and #chambre Penelope, build texture and colour as fundamental tools; the acrylics are at once suggestive and expressive.
