... And a Jewelry Maker Who Paints
by Margherita Potenza
"If I were to describe myself as an artist, I would say that I’m a painter who makes small things and a jewelry maker who paints. Painting and “making small things” are, to me, very closely interrelated practices: The jewelry emerges from the painting, and the other way around. Both the paintings and the jewelry reflect my thoughts and feelings on life."
