Artist Bio:
Tiziana Mazziotto trained as a scenic artist in her native Naples, Italy, and has spent the past sixteen years fostering a career in the theatre and film industries. Fascinated by weathering and aging techniques, she has also employed her skills in her own artwork, simulating a variety of surfaces, textures and effects reflecting inspiration she finds in the everyday world.
Tiziana has been living in the United States for 18 years and lived in CT and KY working as a Scenic Artist/Scenic Charge in some of the major regional theaters in the country. She then decided to take the big step of moving to New York City five years ago working in tv and film industry and now theater again. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband.

Artist Statement:
My artistic inspiration is drawn from the natural patterns and effects created by the inevitable decay of man-made and natural surfaces all around us. While many see evidences of disintegration such as rust, lichen, peeling paint, and crumbling masonry as jarring and unpleasant, I find fascination in the development of random and natural evolutions that gradually replace what came before.

These patterns and textures, when observed with the artistic eye, exhibit the organic and ever-changing beauty present in nature. In fact, they represent the inexorability of nature's triumph over permanence, and the endless possibilities and fascination in impermanence itself. In decomposition's side effects can be found recomposition's beauty.
