Arianna Fioratti Loreto
While studying Romanesque sculpture for a Phd at Princeton, Arianna Fioratti Loreto found that she was most interested in the patterns and decorative motifs found in the works of art she was studying. Arianna started taking classes in textile design and ultimately started working in the field. Thinking about patterns and the method of printmaking led her to make her own "engravings" but in pen and ink. She found that animals had the most interesting patterns in nature. She also became fascinated with the world of the microscopic. Radiolarian, zooplankton and viruses have a grace, a symmetry and an abstract beauty that brings one back to the beginning of time.
