Luisa Protti 

Luisa Protti  (born in 1960 in Milan) where she currently lives and works. 

Her exhibition career began in 1982 and continued through solo and group exhibitions in various national and international locations. 

Her work moves from the idea that art is a new reality made up of individuals/things that generate new species, as in nature, opening up new possibilities of thinking about the image, the space, the time, outside from sociological, anthropological, etc. stylisms. 

In Protti's works individual/nature/history are connected in a link of examples of vivid physical images distinguishable for a natural light being in which form and matter make alive the light, the shadow, the air, giving things an idea of changeable. Luisa has been since 1978 an active protagonist of the activity of the Casa degli Artisti-Milan.
