Intro
(...) Structures, constructions permeated by a pulsing energy, by an evocative force, that make the Zanella jewels works full of emotion, poetry and pathos.

Retrospective: 1993-2007

The work of Annamaria Zanella departs from the purely geometric designs of the Padua School to emerge with a strongly individual trait. Iron, gold and silver sheets, segments and bands are transformed by a process originating from a decisive creative impetus which concentrates on their ‘skin’ through oxidation, niello, acrylic enamels, lacquers, resins, pigments, engraving and beating. The chromatic element acquires an ever more predominant role in the artist’s development: acid greens, strong reds, deep blues, pearl-like fuchsias and even total black penetrate and completely enshroud the sheeting, become a compact ensemble with which the structure of the piece of jewellery is created.
Structures, constructions permeated by a pulsing energy, by an evocative force, that make the Zanella jewels works full of emotion, poetry and pathos.
