In her work, artist Linda Pagani deconstructs the elements of place. Through the manipulation of material and space, Pagani transports viewers from the real to the imagined through photography, paper and ceramic installations. Her subject matter concentrates on the architecture of land and structure acting as entryways into a new dimension. Pagani studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Traveling Fellowship (2014), Karsh Prize in Photography (2012) and the Springborn Fellowship (2011). Pagani’s works have been exhibited internationally and are held in private and public collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.


In the stillness series I reinterpret familiar environments. Utilizing light and space as central subjects, I create abstracted realities, exploring the way we experience the architecture around us. My aim is to confront our surroundings and to question what it is that we see and how it makes us feel. The interiors of a home have been an infinite source of my inquiry into the understanding of stillness. Within the solitude of walls light travels in and out without human intervention - sun comes in and out, light shifts, shadows form. The spaces breathe and live without people as I search for emotions present within the silence.
