Biography

Eliana began her training in Florence as a scientist, while studying Art under the mentorship of Greta Villa from Academy of Florence. She continued her studies in London, where she obtained an interdisciplinary PhD at University College London. She then focused on her studio practice and her interpretation of realism in figurative painting under the mentorship of Bettina Reiber at Central St Martins.

She is now based in Geneva, Switzerland, where she continues her quest in bridging the gap between art and science. Her artistic research brushes up against scientific studies by demonstrating the illusory quality of visual perception, which queries the truth of the visible: how the brain stores images, the way it recollects and interprets them. In 2015, she received the prestigious Swiss National Funding Award for the development of an interdisciplinary project.

Her work has been exhibited and is held in private collections in Switzerland, Italy, UK and the US. She has been featured by multiple media outlets and publications, including The Jealous Curator, BOOOOOOOM and Create!Magazine among others.

She is currently represented by Le Salon Vert in Geneva, CH and Vecchiato Arte in Padova, IT.
