Ilaria Bochicchio depicts the human form using a multitude of layers and colors, examining the essence of anatomy as she forms the body through paint. Her closely cropped compositions set against strong, solid backgrounds resemble cuts of meat in a butcher shop, immersed in their solitude. Bochicchio was selected for the Young Artists Mediterranean Biennal 2015. She studied at Rome’s European Institute of Design and has a Master’s degree from the University of Milan. She lives and works in Milan.
