The theme of evasion is a line that binds her works. In stark contrast with the dictatorship of borders and conventional beliefs, she investigates how to overcome the limits dictated by the social and architectural structures that we usually inhabit and that we often foster more or less consciously [...] Read more W ith her sensibility, the artist plays with the power of images to evoke surreal scenarios. Beatrice's work breaks through space and reveals an imaginative world that brings us beyond the heaviness of reality.
Through the use of simple materials such as paper, aluminum and cotton threads, the artist borrows images from the natural world and reworks them according to her personal vision. Sometimes the paper is used as metaphor of a torn body, other times the aluminum acts as a mirror through which we see a sky in a room, joining the observer into a journey across the power of images.

Beatrice Spadea (b. 1995, Monza) is a visual artist based in Italy, who graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, in Milan. Per accedere all’arte di Beatrice Spadea bisogna immaginare di entrare in un universo parallelo. Le chiavi per aprire la porta di questo suo mondo intimo e creativo sono le sue opere e in particolare le sue “Mask”. [...] Read more I FRAMMENTI DI CIELO DI BEATRICE SPADEA Q: you are a versatile multidisciplinary artist, but what is your preferred medium of choice, the one you will always come back to? Read more INTERVIEW A:I don't think I have a favorite medium because the idea usually comes first in my practice, and then I decide how to give it a final shape. The process is rarely inverted. I do not mean that the medium is not important. On the contrary, I find it extremely relevant, but only at the service of the idea. As such, I find myself experimenting every time with new materials and techniques, looking for the best match with what I intend to create.
For example, last year, I have developed some ideas around the theme of parallel worlds, with the image of the sky as the focal point. I started using threads to convey these sensations of volatility, inconsistency, and fleetingness. I immediately felt connected to this material and the type of sculptures I was able to create with it, as they gave me the opportunity to explore the theme I wanted to elaborate on effectively.
