SOLO EXHIBITION BY PAOLA MADORMO “MADO”
For Paola Madormo, art is set against the world around her — good and bad, nature and pollution, the city, energy, technology. It inspires thought, meditation, invention and construction. Whether it is painting, writing or sculpting, artistic research must be fluid, it must consist of curiosity, a questioning look (or perhaps a shocked look) at chaos, the ability to find wonder and dream of more. Paola Madormo: “…Art, for me, is a sensation; even though at a certain point you start to view it concretely, but then everything vanishes again and it seems to be eternally unfinished…”
Mado was born in Luino, Varese. After studying in Cordenons, Pordenone, where she obtained a degree in Commercial Graphics and Photography, she moved to Venice, where she graduated in sculpting at the Fine Arts Academy. Her interest in old crafts led her to the San Trovaso boatyard, where she learned the art of gilding. From 1997 she worked as an ‘artistic creator’ at the Café Margaret Duchamp in Venice. She held an exhibition at the Bevilacqua La Masa gallery in Venice, at the Magazzini del Sale (“salt warehouses”) and at the Ca’ Vendramin Calergi palace.
With the art association SPA+A she has been involved in various exhibits in Italy and abroad. She lives and works between Venice and Pordenone.
