Artist Statement

In my multidisciplinary art practice I capture the essence of wild, untamed landscapes, their raw beauty and sublime power with painting, camera-less photography, moving image, field recording, and installations.

In co-creation with nature I document weather phenomena, such as rain and strong winds, and explore the inherent agency of natural materials.

By allowing nature to imprint its own marks upon my creations, I aim to convey a sense of humility and reverence for the majesty of the Earth.

Drawing inspiration from Karen Barad's insight that "matter feels, converses, suffers, desires, yearns, and remembers," I aim to evoke empathy and wonder for the vitality and energy of the more-than-human world that surrounds us.


I regularly show my work in exhibitions in UK and internationally and collaborate with interior designers.  
My paintings are owned across the world, have been featured in book designs and recently appeared in The Flux Review magazine.

“Away, away, from men and towns,
To the wild wood and the downs, 
To the silent wilderness,
Where the soul need not repress its music.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley

My  background in design and photography
( www.stefaniaboianophoto.com ) allows me to help people to get a better sense of visual awareness: from composition to colour, from shapes to harmony and final visual message. My focus is not only on techniques but an important aspect is how to tackle artist blocks, how to develop creativity and how to trust instinct.

In 2013 I founded Art in the City Milano in Italy, with the help of a few amazing people. 

A 4-year temporary art gallery and project space based in the heart of the historical centre of Milano in an unused venue with the aim to provide:
* a collaborative space for members to develop their artistic projects
* a gallery for members and non member artists working in any field of art to showcase their work

* an informal co-working environment for creatives

The dynamic exhibition and workshop programme provided a platform for emerging and established artists to show new work and create new networks and partnerships.

After 4 years the hiring contract got to an end.
I'm now working to launch a similar concept in London
where I permanently live.
