About the artist

Ceramics - shaped, built and united with memory photographs

Sara Dario - Photo sculptures, Ceramic art, Porcelain art

Sara Dario fuses sculpture and photography through the technique Silk Screen, the production of silkscreen matrices with photographic means. She prints in colour at high temperatures directly onto raw porcelain. This technique allows her to cut out, deconstruct, reconstruct and model images to create photo-sculptures and installations. In her creative process, photography is as integral to the art as sculptural form. The pieces are all connected by the concept of movement, inspired by the wind as it blows through the trembling trees or the waving meadows.
