Whipped Cream
Paola Pivi
Italian, b. 1971
Follow

Best known for her series of whimsical, feather-covered bears, Paola Pivi seeks to reveal the power of imagination and freedom through her photographs and sculptures. Animals, often in bizarre or surreal settings, frequently figure into her work due to their associations with the human condition. She believes that every person holds a memory of a time when humans were closely connected with animals; as such, her viewers are represented within the animals. Pivi prefers not to read too much into her art, saying, “It is the art that is the interesting thing, and to elaborate on it just doesn’t serve any purpose for me.” Instead, Pivi simply creates extraordinary, improbable environments that resonate with the audience.
