About Marzia Colonna

Born in Pisa, Marzia Colonna was accepted into art school at the age of twelve. This was followed by the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, and then a move to England with her husband in 1970. Work initially concentrated on drawing and sculpture. Colonna`s first exhibition in London was held at the Campbell and Franks Gallery in 1979.

Artist Statement of Marzia Colonna

"Marzia Collonia has a unique ability to be uncompromised by her instinctive sensuality; her sense of line, of smooth tactility, of undulation and of firm readiness never softens or lessens the essential strength either of her materials or of her deep-rooted inner power. There is nothing massive about the work, but its force is immense".

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. "
Jacques Lipchitz
Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
