Born in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Maria Grazia Rosin lives and works in Venice. She trained at the Cortina Art Institute and, under the guidance of Emilio Vedova, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice in 1983.
In 1992 with the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation she experimented with glass creations in collaboration with the Murano school and with Maestro Ferro in the De Majo furnace. Starting from this experience, then replicated in numerous other exhibitions, the artist combines the visionary two-dimensionality of his large canvases with the plastic potential of glass, which over time becomes the main form of creative experimentation, in a privileged relationship with furnaces and internationally renowned masters active in Murano.
Her works stand out for their aesthetic-visual quality, in a creative balance between art and design, combining the ancient techniques of master craftsmen with complex technologies such as the qualitative control of light, images and electronic sounds.
In addition to detergents and chandeliers, glasses are a recurring theme in Rosin's work who, after having recently taken inspiration from parts of the human body to give them shape, has now made them become a very significant expression of one of the many neuroses of our time, disease and the pills.
Over time Maria Grazia collaborates with other Murano masters: Pino Signoretto, Andrea Zilio and Gianluca Pagnin.
Today, glass is at the center of her research and experimentation work. Rosin's work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions since 1982, and is part of the permanent collections at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York; Indianapolis Museum of Art; Montreal Museum of Fine Art; Kunst Museum of Dusseldorf and Murano Glass Museum.
