Olimpia Ferrari is an Italian artist living in New York and presenting her ICP–Bard MFA 2011 Thesis Show. She uses photography to express the connection between architectural spaces and the mental and physical realm of thought and emotion.
A graduate of the ICP Certificate program, Ms. Ferrari’s MFA thesis will explore portraiture and memory with metaphoric and psychological symbolism – examining the photographic medium within the history of photography and 21st century digital culture.
According to Olimpia, “I believe our surroundings are closely related to our minds and memories. Architectural landscapes and interior spaces form a parallelism with the state of mind they evoke and provoke.”
Opening Reception March 24 6–10PM | ICP Studio Gallery 24–20 Jackson Ave. 3rd Floor Long Island City, NY
