The Associazione Amici dell'Atelier Calcografico (AAAC) in Novazzano will be presenting in Lugano a solo exhibition of recent works by the Italian artist Isabella Ciaffi. Born in Pescara in 1952 and raised in Bologna, Isabella Ciaffi is an accomplished interpreter of contemporary engraving.

The title of the exhibition, “Elementi non razionali della natura umana” (“Non-Rational Elements of Human Nature”), alludes, with reference to the Romantic philosophy, to the sentimental and spiritual component necessary to nurture the passions, ideals and creative freedom from which the uniqueness and diversity of each individual, even in imperfection, originates.

In addition to the engraving “Omaggio ad Afrodite” (2022), reserved for AAAC members and printed by Gianstefano and Francesco Galli in the Atelier Calcografico in Novazzano, the exhibition includes a series of etchings and drypoint works realised in 2016-21, and a selection of artist's books printed and sewn by Isabella Ciaffi in her atelier in Bologna.
