Maria Grazia Rosin

Born in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Maria Grazia Rosin lives and works in Venice.
She attended the Istituto d’Arte in Cortina and then studied under Emilio Vedova at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, taking her diploma in painting in 1983.
Working together with the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, she would in 1992 experiment with creations in glass, working with the Murano Glass School and the master-glass-blower Vittorio Ferro, from the De Majo glass-works.
This area of research would be followed up in numerous other exhibitions, with the artist working together with internationally-renowned master glass-blowers from Murano on works that combine the visionary, two-dimensional space of her paintings with the potential of glass as a plastic medium.
A mixture of art and design, her works bring together the ancient techniques of master craftsmen with all the modern technology available for the control of light, images and electronic sounds. Since 1982 she has participated in important collective and one-woman shows in Italy and abroad. Her works are part of the permanent collections at various major museums, including the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, the KunstMuseum in Dusselorf and, of course, the Museo del Vetro on Murano.
