Alice Cattaneo studied at the S.F.A.I. and the Glasgow School of Art. After time spent in the USA, and having matured a respectful exhibition history in both private galleries and museums, she returned to Milan. Notwithstanding their apparent vicinity to aspects of abstract constructivism and the expressive languages of the historical Avant-garde, her constructs in metal, paper and wood are born of an intrinsically rhythmic, musical core.
This core has lead the artist to create fascinatingly complex “useless architectures”, which are sometimes ephemeral due to the fragility of the materials used in their creation. Recently, expresses herself using metallic elements and coloured plastic and her creations appear to be more concentrated and controlled.
