Born in Ponte dell'Olio (PC) Italy, 1983. Lives and works in Milan and London.

Sofia Cacciapaglia’s delicate and stately works present images of female forms that merge to become abstract forms, in an allegory of the inescapable cycle of human nature, where a women’s material nature or ‘being’ obsessively returns to its essence. The work captures this state of existence between dream and reality in an imaginary world with floral and botanical echoes and anthropomorphic images.
