Edelweiss Calcagno

Edelweiss Calcagno is an internationally recognized Italo-American artist known for her multi-media artwork. She has experience in all types of printmaking, in painting and sculpture. She often tears apart her paintings and prints to reattach them creating sculptures of new contemporary shapes unifying all three of those disciplines in one. She has been experimenting with different techniques gearing her attention also to optic illusion, and games involving shadows. Through her artwork she helps people that suffered traumas like sexual, physical and psychological abuse and addresses some of the issues many people have as consequences. Her projects not only involve those who suffered but it also touches a delicate part which is the survival and how to cope with those traumas.
