Marina Bindella (Perugia, 1957),artist, engraver and teacher at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma. Her works, characterized by dense tangles of floater signs, engraved or drawn, spawn images of distant cosmic or naturalistic evocation that are dissolved in a bright rhythmic and pulsating vibration. Through dense chromatic relationships, asymmetrical balance of lights and confluences of signs, Bindella is able to create flows of vibrant signs with the same original energy of the cell movement and the organic eternally moving matter. Her artistic path, which not coincidentally is formed between the white and the black of the woodcut, is born from the idea of the sign as a basic unit of the image aggregation, and goes up to tones of colors reworked by small traces discovered by the instrument, by their refraction of the light.

A pictorial identity filtered by a constant and meditated work, reinvented in the space harmonies of terrestrial and celestial splits that release the perception from sensory data and lead us into the world of memory images, processed by consciousness. The great capacity of research and technical experimentation enables Bindella to recreate with ever renewed magnificence each turn of movement, imperceptible and macroscopic at the same time.
