Isabella Pizzano was born in Rome, Italy, where she earned a B.A. in Fine Arts specializing in clay sculpture. While residing in N.J. she exhibited her sculptures in numerous national and international shows such as the prestigious competition of "ARTISTIC CERAMICS" in Faenza, Italy. As a gallery owner in N.J. she presented many talented artists working with different media as well as providing consulting services to many corporations and private collectors. For ten years she participated in multiple workshops under national renowned teachers in multimedia. She then started to develop her own at compositions. Today her work is mostly abstract expressionism and she likes to experiment with different techniques, mostly water media, inks, and collage, using rare and archival papers. In China, Isabella experienced a cultural art exchange with local artists as well as conducting several workshops and demonstrations of Western Art Techniques.

ARTIST PHILOSOPHY

"Art is an intellectual activity, a conceptual enterprise and not merely something to which the senses and feelings come into play" — Arthur Danto
"Can my work be concerned with an audience? Will Its identity exist devoid of a presumption? Who has the responsibility for creating the works conscious?
Some works are the result of suffering while others are an easy birth. Not all of the forms and coloration, or their relations are grounded in traditional Western European methodologies despite my Roman tutelage. Aesthetic essentials can tease inclinations into exploring profound or frivolous emotions that might instantly leap from disruptive or rewarding accidents. The risk is in the explorations, which may, at times, neither resolve nor coalesce.
Preconceived culturally imbued attitudes come into question for unexpected consideration as their aggregate forces are provoked by the pull of the emotional metaphors suggested by the moment–by–moment abstractions and improvisations within the process. Combining with the energies emanating from the colors, the forms and the textures, a momentum emerges, flows, halts, surges, and ebbs. Herein reside the notes, then the chords, the music and perhaps the dance, at times, the missteps, but always the vulnerabilities and the surrender. Playing out within the field are the risks, the revelations, the bliss, the triumphs, and the foundering.
"Here is the life of the creative process. It is all engaging and relentless. It is a total commitment; it is unreserved and raw. When in honest pursuit of one’s inner truth, it can be nothing less. This intimate outpouring is completely and unabashedly offered to the viewer. It is a visual/virtual documentation of the process encounters and, when embraced within the complexities of the personal relationship, what pervades the ringing silence, what dwells beyond the stillness is the visual poetry of the artist’s heart and mind." — W.A. Traina
"The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize." — Robert Hughes
