Painter and goldsmith, class of ’71, was born and works in Latina.
She graduated as a Teacher of Applied Art at the Art Institute of Priverno A. Baboto (LT), where she was able to refine the practical experience imparted, from an early age, by her father who loved studies and artistic techniques. classic.
From the meticulous and precision dexterity, typical of goldsmith work, to the disruptive and instinctive contemporary art, the step will not be short … and after a long front-office experience he returns to drawing, painting, “scratching”, experimenting with new tools, new techniques and materials, thus moving from life drawing to imaginative informal painting.
Her exhibition activity began in 2014: the year in which the artist will participate in the prestigious international exhibition of contemporary art “Color Immersion” at the Domus Talenti exhibition space, in the heart of Rome. She will follow her speech at the collective exhibition “Dreaming of the Eternal City” at the Galleria Elettroshock in Turin; to arrive in Perugia in the same year, exhibiting at the “Art and Evolution” event set up at the Rocca Paolina in the Umbrian capital.
The following year, therefore in 2015, the artist will be selected by the Crisolart Galleries of Barcelona to exhibit within the contemporary “International Review of Visual Art”.
Her artistic industriousness continues unabated in the following years. But a new attitude seems to govern Alessandra Chicarella’s artistic poetics: that is, a careful observation of the territory that is familiar to her and therefore surrounding, which will find breath and confluence in numerous artistic events in the city and in the province of Latina.
Profitable in this sense will be the collaboration with MAD (acronym for Museum of Diffused Art) of Fabio D’Achille, promoter of many cultural events in the Latin province; by virtue of this, the artist will take part in various personal and collective exhibitions, under the banner of sharing and artistic participation.
Of particular importance will be, in the years 2018-2019, the didactic and exhibition experience in the Moscow city Sergiev Posad, within the international exhibition “En Plein Air”, at the Art Baza Gallery.
It is also worth mentioning the particular relationship with publishing, which will result in 2020 with the graphic and design illustration of the volume “Il Colore del Metallo”, a graphic novel by Fabrizio Gargano up to the recent creation and presentation of “Il Libro d’Artista “, a multi-material and deeply intimate work and from the first” Giornale d’Artista “, a collection of newspapers published during the months of the pandemic lockdown that the artist analyzes, unites, transforms, thus publishing a precious testimony emotional experience of our recent experience.
The comparison with the contemporary world, understood as actuality, news and phenomenology of the transmission of real data, will also find expression, in the summer of 2021, in the creation of the mural dedicated to the memory of the journalist Ilaria Alpi, killed in Mogadishu in 1994.
In existence in the park of the same name named after her, in the city of Latina.
Alessandra Chicarella’s artistic career is therefore characterized by the strong emotional link between a solid experience and a meticulous research in a crescendo of observation, conscious experimentation and an always lively comparison with other artistic expressions.
