Francesca Albini returns with another beautiful and evocative chapbook. The journey that she leads us on defies the normal rules of time and space. The simplicity of her writing catches the unsuspecting reader in shimmering pools of sentiment. Albini’s images dance on the page, they play Venice’s heat induced mirages against its succulent dark shadows.
Francesca Albini divides her life between literary and artistic endeavours. She is a PhD in Classics, and has worked in publishing for her entire adult life, as a translator, author and editor. She is a self taught artist and photographer. Her work is inspired by folk art, but also by design. Albini is a collector of memories, and uses any medium that allows her to remember and share, express feelings and narrate stories. From line drawings to plastic cameras, from collage to upcycled jewellery and dolls. “My work is playful and dreamy, child-like but also philosophical. I fall in and out of love with many styles and tools, but I’m always me, whatever I do.”
