BIO

Milisa Galazzi is best known for her human scale installations, works on paper, and her conceptual/abstract oil paintings. Her work often highlights human relationships - particularly when these connections are punctuated by physical distance or separation by time. Through subtle visual layering, Galazzi acknowledges the passage of time as well as celebrates the power of human connections over generations. Galazzi exhibits nationally in solo and group shows in both galleries and museums. Her work is held in private and public collections such as Women and Infants Hospital and The Women's Medicine Collaborative in Providence, Rhode Island. Recently, the Galazzi was honored by the international paint manufacturing company, R&F, as Artist of the Month. Galazzi presents talks at national and international conferences such as the International Encaustic Conference in 2013 and 2014 and the National Art Education Association Conference in New York City in 2012. Her artwork has been featured and reviewed in FiberArts and ArtScope magazines as well as in books such as, "Authentic Visual Voices: Contemporary Paper & Encaustic" and "Paper + Wax, Techniques in Handmade Paper and Encaustic” and soon to be published, "Cape Cod Contemporary Artist: Abstraction." Galazzi was “boat schooled” while she and her family traveled and lived aboard their 31 foot trimaran sail boat hand built by her father. She received an MA with Honors from Rhode Island School of Design where she extensively researched the evaluation and assessment of the educational effectiveness of community-based art education settings and her research is published by Harvard University Graduate School of Education, Project Zero Press. In addition, she holds a BA from Brown University in Studio Art with minors in Women’s Studies and Cultural Anthropology as well as a degree from Phillips Academy, Andover, and - all of which directly informs the content of her art making. She works full time in her studio in Providence, Rhode Island, and on Cape Cod in the summer months.
