As a multidisciplinary artist, Mariapia Malerba experiments with different media, painting, installation fashion and video. Weaving them together to create. She strives for artwork that captures the profound beauty and vulnerability of the natural world and explores the interrelationship of humanness and environment. Fabric is but what the loom produces: small waves of thread, a surface, a new skin. Of course, fabric is more than skin-deep. In this series, Mariapia Malerba engages in a dialogue between strength and fragility, solidity of form against ephemeral delicacy.
