Lucia Ferrari

Overview

[Art] provided a lifeline and purpose at a moment when she had begun to neglect her education and act out, in part due to the frustration of hiding her queer sexual identity during her catholic upbringing. 

Lucia Ferrari is an Italian artist raised in North London. While her working-class environment did not provide many opportunities to forge a path in art, she found a love for literature, history, and the arts in her school art classes; they provided a lifeline and purpose at a moment when she had begun to neglect her education and act out, in part due to the frustration of hiding her queer sexual identity during her catholic upbringing. 

 

Now, having pursued her artistic practice, Ferrari recreates theatrical scenes from past memories, distorted through imagination and nostalgia. Her visual narratives continuously touch on her female queer identity and religious background, which can be found in the composition and subject matter within her works.
