Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco was born in Genova, Italy, in 1967, descending from a family of Florentine Renaissance painters. Soon after her training as an illustrator, she reconnected with her family roots and turned to oil painting. In 1999 she moved to London where she continued to develop her practice and where her work has been included in major painting prizes. She shows regularly both nationally and internationally.
In her current body of works she reflects on the meaning of belonging while being elsewhere. Through distilled light and colour she evokes a sense of yearning for a place and a time.
The John Natsoulas Center for the Arts will hold its annual gallery-wide 30 Ceramics Sculptors exhibition in concurrence with the California for the Advancement of Ceramic Art (CCACA) Conference. This exhibition was first conceived in 1986, a collaboration between the late Robert Arneson and John Natsoulas, and continues the ceramic traditions made famous by instructors and students of the University of California, Davis Art Department and the University of California, Davis and local ceramic artists.
