Paola Bazz is a Manchester, UK based artist, born in Padua, Italy.
I studied painting and drawing in my formative years and completed my degree in Architecture at University IUAV in Venice. The use of recycled material, such as printed-paper, cardboard, wood and plastic characterizes much of my artistic productions and this is the central theme of my works. Our waste, anything that we throw away every day, is full of imaginary and it has an enormous appeal.
Recycling is a form of re-interpreting. Art is, in its essence, a recycling project. The artist takes a set of materials and ideas, revisits them with reconsidered concepts, and repurposes them to create something new.
