Painter class '73, lives and works in Carpi (MO).
The artistic training takes place thanks to the work she does for the great Italian clothing brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Extè, Ferrè, Twinset.
Erika Marchi's work has been described as innovative and tastefully refined, an art that becomes the revelation from another dimension from another situation, something that within a mental space reveals itself to others and communicates to them.
Her artworks are oils developed on canvas or paper in which the colours of black and white dominate, interrupted by small, generally red strokes. The most figurative ones are called "Tangles" as if they were spools of thread that form figures of which the red dot represents a hypothetical wax that blocks the last thread. They are works executed with precision and often convey feelings such as love for family, music and art, but also more iconic figures.
The most abstract ones are called "Labyrinths" because playing on the shadows of black, they hide spaces and figures that come out as the works are observed. They are more instinctive works, focused on the sense of the sign, which is often used as a means of transmitting important messages.
In Italy she has exhibited in cities such as Rome, Milan, Venice, Bologna, Turin, Florence, Bergamo; she participated, among other things, in the 9th Florence Biennale in 2013, confronting artists of the thickness of Anish Kapoor.
