Artist Bio:

Cristina Pavesi  was born in Milan, where she lives and works.
She  completed artistic studies  graduating at the Fine Arts Academy of Brera in Milan in theater design,  and achieving art specializations in engraving, art prints and art therapy.
Since  1992 she exhibited in solo and group exhibitions.
Since 2002 she has been making very short videos that have been projected in  national and international  public spaces, art galleries and video festivals in Italy and abroad.

Her work, even when connected to art history through classical genres of landscape and still life, is intends in a non-descriptive, but based on experience, metaphorical and ironic. The meditative sense of the passage of time is present both in her videos and in her artwork.
