Katia Brugnolo is Academic Professor of Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts in Verona. She was Curator of the Civic Museum of Palazzo Ricchieri in Pordenone, of Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza and of the Civic Museum of Ceramics in Nove. She has designed and built numerous art exhibitions of ancient and contemporary ceramics, written catalogs and books devoted to artists, potters and museum collections. She learned from the masters of Nove the traditional decor tecnique, painting floral decorations or creating and adapting figurations with ceramic objects in modern design.
Decorative motifs based on different languages have thus been conceived and expressed, both very dear to Brugnolo: on the one hand the precision of the stroke decoration fabrics of works by Paolo Veronese (XVI century) and Paolo Veneziano (XIV century), on the other abstract painting with themes inspired by the colours and the refreshing stream of water and dance.
After her important exhibition experience, Brugnolo has created her own original painting and sculpture path, adopting an abstract language for large and small paintings on ceramics and a figurative language for female faces modelled in semirefrettario or painted on pottery, also inspired by historical figures, Nefertiti, the wife of Dario (by Giambattista Tiepolo, Villa Cordellina cycle).
She received an invitation to Shanghai, for April 2017, to participate in the “Teapot Exhibition” with her works.
