Carolina Mazzolari trained in fashion and textiles before going on to develop her practice as a multi-faceted visual artist. Embracing her passion in textile manipulation, her work also encompasses printing, painting, photography, video and performance.
For Cure3 this evocative artwork by Mazzolari, Prayer Wheel Study, combines both futuristic and traditional elements. The artist has created a piece which conjures up the meditative quality of Tibetan prayer wheels and primitive clocks. The reflective fabric floor is activated with any direct light, forming a sort of halo which heightens the spiritual aspect of the spinning solid oak sculpture. A first study of a 'metaphysical installation corner', this work invites the viewer to ponder, as within a religious or sacred space.
