Lia Monguzzi

Lia Monguzzi is a multidisciplinary artist whose work ranges from photography to painting, from animation to video art. Her way of storytelling focuses on existentialism, nostalgia and contemplation – on themes such as the relationship between man and nature (or man and God). Rather than giving an answer, she likes to think that her images subtly interrogate the viewer, leaving space to introspection. They don’t meticulously describe an environment, a situation or a person, but stimulate a feeling. From her perspective, photographs are memories which can be translated into dreams and new worlds. The photographer offers an hint, draws the structure of a perceived reality, but the image is there to be shaped through the observer’s eyes and imagination, to be filled with meaning.
