Alessia Iannetti was born in Carrara (Italy) in 1985 and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts. She uses graphite, watercolor, colored pencils, and ink to a wooden base, creating artworks which are cinematographic, made of blacks and whites and infinite variations of gray. Inspired by mythology, Alessia Iannetti’s illustrations tell gothic and mystic stories inspired by dark anglosaxon culture. Alessia has recently exposed in Los Angeles at La Luz De Jesus Gallery with her Solo Show “In the Footsteps of my Shadow”.

“My work focuses on deteriorating architecture. I see an inherent honesty in the face of my subject. These man-made structures, designed to be huge forces of permanence, are now collapsing in on themselves. Among all of the clutter—the shards of wood and layers of rubble—there remains a gentle resolve. It is as if the buildings were content with their circumstance. As I work, I study these structures incessantly. They are on the brink of ruin, yet appear dignified in their state. Something very energized and present is trying to escape out of a slow history of abandonment.”
“These images are created through an ambitious layering process. I collage with found paper to reflect the fragmented and complex tactility of decay. Once a dimensional foundation is achieved, various mixed media are used to bring definition and depth to these raw materials. The processes of collage and drawing alternate between themselves lending to a seamless blend of the two mediums.”
