Carla Nazzi describes her inspiration behind this piece, ‘Iris’: “By focusing point by point on its shapes and colours I noticed the complexity of my subject. It is almost a contemplative practice of what flora offers to us. Flora is frequently forgotten in mass extinction, and that is why I decided to show it off.”
Carla Nazzi studies at the National School of Art in Nice, France. Carla considers her artistic practice as a set of experiments that include different mediums such as painting, drawing and prosthesis. The changes she observes in her daily life due to climate change has led her to work on biodiversity loss. This issue is now at the centre of all her experiments and artistic research. Carla’s artistic approach is that she wants to capture something that is currently disappearing. She takes the time to observe and to appreciate the flora and fauna which allows her to become more aware of its loss.
