Maria Paola Coda

Her creative process dwells on a permanent search for the beauty hiding within our state of mind. Coda examines and translates the vibratory element of beauty that goes beyond shape or colour, on to her canvas.“It’s that vibration that makes you cry when looking or listening to something without a rational reason. Beauty as a sublime concept is what interests me and what I am looking for”.

The exaggerated multi layering of intensely coloured acrylics acts as a poetic emotional channel, each layer of matter represents an experience, a mood, a time and a place, which then come together to create balance.
