(1958 Brescia, Italy)
Maurizio Donzelli was born in 1959 in Brescia, Italy where he currently lives and works. For seven years, he has been teaching the Theory of Perception and Psychology of Colours at LABA Fine Art Academy in Brescia. His artistic production includes a series of medium including drawing, painting, textiles, sculptures, and installations through which he seeks the meeting point between the real world and its artistic representation. Donzelli’s approach to art making is driven by philosophical considerations of the nature of perception and how visual phenomenon such as image, colour and art itself affect the way we understand reality. For Donzelli drawing is an intellectual and technical pursuit and it is central to his practice. Donzelli also works with mirrors which he sees as a symbol of perception; with their ability to reflect and distort, they also reflect our own variable comprehension of the surrounding world.
