Luisa Rabbia | Torino, 1970

 

 

Luisa Rabbia’s work is rooted in drawing and expands into painting and sculpture. She explores the individual, social and mystical realms, delving into themes such as life and death, connection and loss, and the relation between micro and macrocosm. She approaches her work letting it evolve through marks and traces over a surface that always suggest where to go in a relation of trust between the known and unknown.
