Raffaella della Olga
Born in Bergamo, Italy, 1967. Lives and works in Paris
Having for more than a decade chosen to turn analog and work most exclusively with typewriting machine, Raffaella della Olga has with this tool found a way to write and draw her own path to abstraction. What starts as a concept (to be an « analog artist » in digital ages, to find freedom through mechanical gestures) has rapidly turn into an infinite exploration and expansion of the space of the page. Echoing her work with the typewriting machine, she practice since a couple of years an art of deconstruction with pieces of printed fabrics that she cuts into open and vibrant grids reminding of Op Art.
