In her works, Maria Morganti uses various techniques to study the ways in which time is stratified, with colours and shapes that become contaminated, creating new relationships and narratives. For Into the hole the artist used pure pigments, with which she filled a hole on the floor. Every time a color is added, our perception of space changes. It is a sort of archaeological excavation, a slow operation that helps us understand the nature of a place. This little book wants to show us the color, its strength, its power to transform things around us, but also the importance of dwelling on a detail, because even a particular can contain a world.

Maria Morganti

Maria Morganti (Milan, 1965. Lives in Venice) works mainly with painting. Every day she prepares a colour and spreads it on the canvas, covering the previous day’s, of which, however, she leaves a subtle trace. Her works are sedimentations of repeated gestures, a measure of time.
