About the work
Medium
Drawing, Collage or other Work on Paper
Marco Mazzoni
Italian, b. 1982
Follow

Working exclusively with colored pencils, Marco Mazzoni makes highly intricate drawings of flora and fauna that pertain to the ancient art of healing. Inspired by the matriarchal culture of Sardinia, Mazzoni depicts female herbalists and midwives from the 16th to 18th centuries, often framing their faces with the medicinal plants of their profession. The women’s eyes are obscured and their identities are anonymous, making each one a symbolic figure. Mazzoni’s drawings consist of many layers, which create the effects of color, depth, and chiaroscuro normally associated with wet media.
