Chiara Fiorini (born in Acquarossa, Switzerland, 1 February 1956) is a Swiss painter and object artist who lives in Zurich, Switzerland.

Early life[edit]

Chiara Fiorini grew up in the Italian part of Switzerland and attended primary and secondary school there. In 1978 she received a diploma from University of Fribourg (Universität Fribourg). After that she studied art at the École d’art Martenot and graduated from it in 1981. Then she got a diploma from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in 1983 in Paris.[1]

Career[edit]

She has been living in Zurich since 1983, and her works consist of paintings, collages and object art. Her various works of art, as well as her indoor and outdoor object installations, have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe. She has been teaching art at the Rietberg Montessori School in Zurich since 2009.

Apart from Fiorinis paintings in acrylic paint and a diverse mixture of techniques, her work is often about ordinary everyday objects, which she incorporates in her installations in an unusual way. For example, for the exhibition 'Sarajevo' her sculpture Made in Sugar included many sugar cubes, and in another work hundreds of needlepoints were incorporated in an object. From garden furniture made of grass to intricately decorated sculptures made of crocheted plastic, Chiara FIorini's work continually shows itself from a new angle.
