Eleni Marneri Galerie presents the jewelry collection of the Italian painter Claudia Lazzarini.
Claudia Lazzarini has been creating jewelry using the sculpting technique of lost wax casting. These works were profoundly inspired by her husband Luciano, a refined jeweler in Rome, who taught her all the secrets of this old and elaborate art craft.
Her creations often feature dancing figures, reminiscent of Matisse. Their continuous movement allows her to express a wide range of feelings, from joy to pain, that is explored and experienced in our everyday life. A choreography of emotions, fluid and unique, define Lazzarini’s unique artistic identity.
Claudia Lazzarini, born in Fiume (former Yugoslavia), grew up between the United States and Italy. Her multicultural background strongly influenced her creative identity; she studied fine art and received a scholarship at the prestigious Chicago Art Institute. In Rome, where she now lives and works, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, studied fresco painting at the School of Art and Decoration, and did figurative drawing with the Italian painter Giulio Turcato.
Lazzarini’s work has been shown both in Italy and abroad; her numerous exhibits include the Belgian Academy of Rome, the Italian Cultural Institute of Amsterdam, and the Barbara Gross Gallery in Munich. Living part of the year on the island of Paros in Greece, Ms. Lazzarini has annually exhibited her works in the Holland Tunnel Gallery there.
