Imprint; A Family Story

Juliana Molina

Ceramic Works by Olivia Di Benigno

May 3, 2014 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Inspired by architecture and found family images, ceramic artist Olivia Di Benigno tells the story of her Italian American heritage through delicately carved porcelain tiles.

“My work suggests the desire for home, whether that is a building or a symbol, as architecture is often equated with memory and nostalgia. Being conflicted by paradoxical themes, I am in a constant state of being pushed and pulled – between Italy and America, drawing and clay. This tension informs and ties my work together. This combination of drawing and clay acts as a metaphor for how nostalgia and memory influence the work I create.”

The public will have an opportunity to meet and talk with Di Benigno at the opening reception on Saturday, May 3rd from 7-9 p.m. at art matters gallery located at 3711 Rhode Island Avenue, Mt. Rainier, MD 20712.
