General questions:

Lucilla Patrizi

She finished her biology study in 2017 but has been drawing since always. She is a quick drawer and a long-term observer, the aesthetic of what already exists and the power of biological processes in nature fascinate her. She is not a magician, She is not inventing new stuff. She tries to make hidden structures visible as sketches or words on paper, sculptures, or paintings.
