Biography

Federica Donato plays around false evidence appearing real.
The human being, his nature, his behaviors and actions are the main focus of her creations. Everything has a raison d'être, and everything can be told silently.

Thanks to her background both cultural and artistic, she carefully selects the subjects to work on. These can either be images from reality, or the result of her imagination.

Convinced that mirabilia (wonderment) has a primary role, it is an eye and soul quality, by curiosity and observation, she triggers an exploration work. Creating is for her an act of progressive appropriation of the image and of its sense.

She experiments different techniques and a wide range of materials.
Her last works are realized through systematic repetitions of an ink stamp on paper.They unfold a universe in which irony, double meanings, the familiar and the unusual come together.
