Annalia Amedeo studied in Florence as a restorer and in this sector she worked for many years collaborating with public and private bodies including Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and the Archaeological Museum of Naples, before arriving at the artistic research in 2011.
The artist uses porcelain by choosing the finest materials and works with oxides and metal salts. The long experience of ceramic restorer has given her a deep knowledge of the materials and an impeccable craftsmanship technique, which allows her to pursue a precise artistic journey for some years.
The duality of being and appearing, of unveiled and hidden, of joy and pain, are aspects in the making of a single perennial cycle of transformation that affect her artistic work. She adores the use of clay for its intrinsic capacity for transformation and for the ancestral memory that it carries with it and that manages to transmit it.
The forms she creates, the material that molds, thus become a testimony and a trace of herself, almost a light footprint, but also a sensitive clue, a whispered suggestion to those who are able to catch it.
In her works she is inspired by nature and the classical world, from the ancient to the baroque, which she draws from a contemporary reworking of models and suggestions. The refined porcelain works of Annalia Amedeo involve us in a perceptive spiral that activates multiple senses simultaneously.
The works of Annalia Amedeo cross the threshold of time and cross its dimensions. Always remaining in deep harmony with nature, at the same time they investigate the essence of the human condition in its most intimate aspects, suffering and metamorphosis, the possibility of evolving and changing. The artist expresses herself through an intrinsically fragile material, even if long-lived, which requires constant care and attention.
