Alessandra Casciotti was born in Rome where she is still living and working. After the completion of her painting education, her artistic production has gradually increased and focused on recurrent themes: Greek and Roman mythology, the language of symbols, the study of classically inspired figures cohabiting with the rational taste of architectural and scenographic geometrical partitions and chromatic constructs, with a research on materials and three-dimensional art. The constant references to tradition both in formal terms and in inspirational principles are reinterpreted in a contemporary key through experimenting techniques and innovative interpretations giving the paintings a suspended atmosphere, sometimes dreamlike and metaphysical, that is a personal mark made of spiritual and communicative tension.
Alessandra Casciotti exhibitions, according to the development of subjects and experiences, started and then constantly increased by participating in various and important group exhibitions hold in different national and international art “places” such as Rome, Salerno, Orvieto, Florence, Milan, Venice, Assisi, Alassio, Spoleto, Berlin, Paris, Tirana, Abu-Dhabi.
In particular, mention is to be made of her participation on 2019 to the 58th BIENNALE DI VENEZIA in the pavillon of the Dominican Republic, where an Alessandra Casciotti’s “materic” artwork was selected showing the peculiar expressive code used by the artist in her research on spaces, three-dimensional art and interpolation between painting and matter. On 2020 other two artworks of her were selected, among thousand of candidates, to participate in the exhibition PACE e AMORE (PEACE and LOVE),official event, that took place in the context of EXPO 2020 DUBAI-ABU-DHABI (event that, due to pandemic, has been held on 2021).
Over time, crowning the interest aroused by her artworks, she held numerous personal exhibitions gradually showing the ripening of themes and elaborations. On 2016 at the Torre de Guevara in the isle of Ischia, the exhibition IL MITO NARRANTE was held and, a year later, it was resumed and expanded in IL LINGUAGGIO DEL SIMBOLO – FASCINO E MISTERO NEL MITO E NEL CONCETTO (THE LANGUAGE OF SYMBOLS – FASCINATION AND MYSTERY IN THE MITH AND IN THE CONCEPT) held on 2017 at the Biblioteca Angelica in Rome.
On 2018 another important personal exhibition VIS SYMBOLICA – IL FASCINO DEI SIGNIFICATI (VIS SYMBOLICA- THE CHARME OF THE MEANINGS) at La Pigna gallery (Maffei – Marescotti palace, the Seat of the Vicariate of Rome at the Holy See) focused on myths and symbols; also on 2018, in Naples at the noble headquarters of Circolo Artistico Politecnico, was held the exhibition FORMA MENTIS – FIGURE E GEOMETRIE, VISIONI E CONCETTI (FORMA MENTIS – SHAPES AND GEOMETRIES, VISIONS AND CONCEPTS),highlighting the connection between figurative systems and geometric abstract patterns in the artist’s aesthetic and ideal approach.
On 2021, Alessandra Casciotti’s artworks included in her personal exhibition entitled CONTAMPORANEITA’ DEL MITO (CONTEMPORANEITY OF THE MITH) have been housed in the exhibition spaces of Rocca Sanvitale, in Fontanellato (PR), the perfect setting to fully appreciate the contemporary relevance of her message and language, thus the form/substance by which the painter transposes common archetypes and traditions.
Many Alessandra Casciotti’s artworks have been highly appreciated by the selection committees of several awards and events and her artworks appear both in private and in public art collections. Just to mention some of the many awards she received , on 2015, the artwork entitled Opportunità (Opportunity) was given a Special Mention in the exhibition-competition ART HUG in Rome; the painting LE METAMORFOSI(The Metamoforphoses) has been personally selected by Prof. Vittorio Sgarbi among those participating in the international exhibition ARTE SALERNO on 2016; a Merit Award was given to the artwork Ciclicità della Vita (Life Cycle) by the Selection Committee chaired by Philippe D’Averio in the exhibition ARTE MILANO – THE FACTORY on 2018. Besides, an artwork of her is included in the permanent exhibition of the museum Fondazione Circolo Artistico Politecnico collection in Naples and the artwork 6 MI LE NA is exhibited in the hall of the luxurious and historical hotel Britannique in Naples.
