Henrietta Molinaro (Born 1979)"I'm inspired by things that have lived a life before they've touched mine".
Henrietta Molinaro is an artist and graphic designer of English and Italian origin. Based in London since 2002, Henrietta's art is inspired by nature, eclectic objects and rediscovered forms. Experimenting with early photographic methods, she creates images that make use of the traditional darkroom process.
Henrietta first studied fine art in Florence and Rome, later continuing with a degree in graphic design at the London College of Printing. Her background in photography and design play an important role in shaping her approach to image making, where each discipline will often inform the outcome of the other.
Henrietta is a passionate collector, choosing her subjects based on shape and detail - the subtle variations in form providing each image with its own individual character. "I'm particularly interested in the life an object may have once had, and in celebrating natural beauty that is often overlooked".
