The Prize

Laura Bianchi, "Two legs and my harm".

Watercolor and pencil on paper, 21x14.8 cm.

Laura Bianchi was born in Crema in 1982 and currently lives and works in London. In 2006 she gained a degree in sculpture from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and subsequently obtained a Master of Arts in Printmaking, or rather Printing Techniques, from Camberewell College of Arts (UAL) in London.

"My art stems from a personal and intimate narrative, in which the relationship with the medium is as important as the references I take inspiration from. The human figure is a recurring subject throughout my creative process. I have an often sentimental approach to the body, insofar as I tend to focus on aspects concering mortality and fragility, adding a nostalgic angle. Allegory - understood as a non-literal form - has always been a precious source of inspiration in my research. Through my work I try to evoke rather than describe. Drawing, which has always been at the center of my discipline, allows me to develop the work in a fluid and spontaneous way, line after line, as a repeated action on the surface of the sheet".

This artwork is part of the Viva la Vulva by Nuvenia project: a collective exhibition by international artists that aims to break down taboos linked to the female body in conjunction with an online charity auction in favor of the Italian Red Cross. The works will be on display at Six Gallery in Milan from 9 to 11 October.

"We are born free from taboos. We live in a society that forces them upon us, feeding stereotypes. Talking about them helps to break them down and learn to accept each other: because we are all perfect precisely because we are different".
