Sonia Scaccabarozzi


Sonia Scaccabarozzi

Sonia Scaccabarozzi was born in Vimercate in 1969.

She attends the State Institute of Art in Monza, a school with a “magical” atmosphere; her encounter with AG Fronzoni and his vision are fundamental points for understanding and growing. After completing her studies she collaborates as a graphic designer with the Electa publishing house, then with the Cosmopolitan magazine. In 1996 she approaches sculpture: clay conquers her, she begins to work it in a small studio directed by Monique Bousquet, a Canadian ceramist; the third dimension is fascinating and engaging.

“Clay makes me feel good, it’s as if my hands have always known it”.
Even wood soon becomes one of her materials; she cuts it, smoothes it, combines sheets of different sizes and thicknesses; her idea is to give three-dimensionality to the sign; most of her works are graphic-three-dimensional and have a strong chromatic impact; the TRAME series was born.

From clay to wood and from wood to metal. In 2015 she learns to weld, recovers metal, joins it, bends it, transforms it into a story that talks about what happens “around”; of encounters, of sky, of moon, of wind.
In 2017 she published “Imperfetti Equilibri”, a catalog dedicated to metals and created on the occasion of a personal exhibition in the Municipality of Merate, in the province of Lecco, where she recently moved and where she still lives.

In 2019 she returns to work on textures that find identity not only with wood but also with paper and concrete, two opposite materials that allow her to play endlessly with different shapes, colors and thicknesses. In addition to having a graphic content, these works summarize moments, changes, phases that leave a mark and lead to the search and discovery of new plots.
In the “IN & Out” series – works from 2022 – the third dimension is expressed with folded and painted fabric; the perception of the work changes by moving the observation point.

The sign is the element that binds all my work, like a thread that unites all the materials with which I tell the “inside” that I feel”.
