Marica Fasoli

Painting works

Marica Fasoli's continuous research has led the artist to focus her expressiveness and artistic research in the figurative hyperrealist sphere, research that has led her to the formulation of two distinct expressive strands (Invisible People and 3D Boxes), both centred on the concept of form as content and container. Her famous origamis depart from a figurative and didactic representation of reality, which, after being made, are 'deconstructed'. The end result is thus no longer merely interpretable on a figurative basis. The figurative aspect takes a back seat, in favour of a multiplicity of combinations such as abstract, geometric, kinetic and concretist movements.


Marica Fasoli was born in Bussolengo (Vr) in 1977. After graduating as an Art Teacher at the Liceo Artistico Statale in Verona in 1995, in 1997 she specialised in Conservation and Maintenance of artistic artefacts on wood and canvas with top marks at the Istituti Santa Paola in Mantua. In 2006 he also obtained a specialisation in Artistic Anatomy at the 'Cignaroli' Academy in Verona where, since the 2016/2017 academic year, he has been teaching the free course in hyperrealist painting. In the very first years after graduating, her main activity consisted of restoration work (among the main ones, paintings from the school of Titian, canvases by Jacopo Bassano and Cignaroli, as well as the frescoes of the Giotto school damaged by the earthquake in the Basilica of Santa Chiara in Assisi), which led her to further refine her painting technique. Since 2002, she gradually abandoned her activity as a restorer, devoting herself more and more to painting.
