The German – Italian artist Patrizia Casagranda creates expressive symbioses with elements from collage, painting, stencil technology, street art and typography. Her motives are mostly designed as thematically homogeneous series of images, in which the artist follows a certain subject or a particular materiality aspect.
In an era of increasing digitalization, which does not stop at art either, Casagranda deliberately relies on a tangible materiality in her works.
On wood panels, jute or truck tarpaulins, it creates relief-like, jagged surfaces from waves, furrows, mortar and knobs. Casagranda works with the collage principle as well as with its opposite, the removal of decollage: it flames the top layer of corrugated cardboard to expose the corrugated profile. She covers fabric over paper, applies graffiti writing.
The dot grid applied from a mortar-gypsum mixture and later coated with color plays an important role. Remember those knobs to works by Roy Lichtenstein and Sigmar Polke. However, they stand out three-dimensionally in Casagranda’s work.
Patrizia was also allowed to participate in a book design and collaboration with Günther Uecker and Markus Lüpertz.
