1967, to Italian parents in Switzerland, Mara
Dominioni is distinguishing her career as
a sculptress. Prior to her life as an artist,
she was practicing architecture and interior
design in Zurich, while being a longtime student
of the late Hungarian painter, Laszlo Schwalm.
Subsequently, she was educated at the Wackers
Academy of Fine Art in Amsterdam and the New
World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida,
where she graduated with a Bachelors in Fine
Arts. Driven by her passion to sculpt she
became her own teacher.
Her sculpture, a homage to the beauty of the
human, is classical in character, represantational
in form, exuding compelling combinations of
sensuality and power,strength and vulnerability,
softness and intimacy.
Informed by the passionate perfection of ancient
Egyptian, Greek and Roman sculpture and inspired
by the works of Michelangelo, Rodin and Camille
Claudel, aswell as many others less known, Mara
Dominioni is intent on capturing „the
beauty of the soul within a purity of form.
Mara Dominioni has been accepting private commissions
since 1995. These works include a bust of Jules
Mazarin, the 17th cent. Governor of France,
for a client in Amsterdam. Her most recent honors
include the Kees Verkade Cultuurprijs Zandfoort
700, the George Gach price of the U.S. National
Sculpture Competition and the Millenium Gift
Sculpture for Royal Caribbean International,
of which 15,000 signed copies were distributed
