Nicoletta raised and still lives in her native Republic of San Marino. She studied animation at the Institute of Art In Urbino, Italy.
Like a melodic nursery rhyme with disturbing lyrics, Nicoletta Ceccoli‘s works aren’t as sweet as they appear. When we first saw Ceccoli’s paintings we thought we were looking at a Mark Ryden exhibition.
The artists share a soft spot for doe-eyed cherubs, flesh that glows like gumdrops and feeling of fantasy-gone-rotten. Ceccoli’s upcoming exhibition “Curiouser + Curiouser” focuses on the dark sides of sweetness, creating dark permutations of nymphs, sweets and woodland creatures that makes us want to trade in our gingerbread man for a celery stick. Though the exhibition takes its title from Alice in Wonderland, it feels to us more like a perverse Candyland.
