ABOUT ME

ALESSANDRA MORABITO

ARTIST

I am currently a second year student at Rhode Island School of Design studying painting.

 

My artistic practice revolves around the exploration of materiality within urban environments. I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of various materials that form the fabric of cities and the profound impact they have on our perceptions and experiences.

 

In my work, I delve into the tactile qualities of urban materials by using wood and some found material. I seek to capture the essence of these materials, exploring their textures, colors, and structural forms. By emphasizing the materiality of urban landscapes, I aim to create a sensory engagement that transcends the visual, inviting viewers to connect with the physicality of their surroundings. I am intrigued by the dialogue between the organic and the man-made, as well as the transformations that occur over time, leaving behind traces of history embedded in the materials. 

 

Ultimately, my artistic statement seeks to convey the beauty, complexity, and transience of urban materiality. Through various mediums, including painting, sculpture, and mixed media, I aim to evoke a heightened awareness of the tangible and intangible elements that define our urban environments, encouraging viewers to reconsider their relationship with the materials that surround them.
