My work is a work on the time. A work about the repetition of the moment, about the creation of a new history. It is not a picture that I paint, it is a frame, a lightning of time. – Laura Federici
Laura Federici's, body of work debates the reality of urban lives and the relations which connect us to the environment showing how space affects our memories, creating a new language of forms and colours. Federici bliss canvases draw the viewer whether they depict the elevated highway running through Rome or the courtyards of the mosques in Damascus, affectively gripping our minds. Objects shown in detail or close-ups become anchors to hold on to, lest we get caught in contemporary ‘mobility’ and fall ill with disorientation. They are rafts to get on to, when the fluidity of things make us all strangers, with no space to occupy.” – (from the article by art critic Arianna di Genova). Suddenly we are transformed and immersed in sunny seaside’s, the eternal beauty of Rome or exotic landscapes.

Laura Federici was born in Rieti, Rome in 1964. She lives and works in Rome. However, she traveled often to Syria, where he participates in exhibitions and workshops held between Damascus and Aleppo..In 1999 creates 12 animated sequences for the film "Un Amore" by Gianluca Tavarelli, which won the Nice New York - San Francisco Film Festival.
