Artistic practice focuses in particular on the analysis of detail and the importance it acquires in the whole. Attention and observation are fundamental methods that the artist uses to get in touch with her surroundings. The mystery, the paradox, the oneiric and the illusory create in the works estrangement and need for reflection, often questioning the reality we live in. The "skin" is an element that returns in the works creating a relationship with an internal and non-superficial dimension. The expressive languages used are different, the materiality in some works becomes fundamental in the practice of mediation and reflection on meaning. She is particularly attentive to the photographic medium in relation to materials, in a continuous game of integration and absorption of photography in matter and matter in photography. 

Currently Sara Davide is analysing and theorising her sculptural approach through direct casting in relation to photography as impression, trace, detail, and suspension, which she

simultaneously applies to her research and the theme of identity. 

Sara Davide, Milan 1994.

She lives and works in Milan, where she graduated cum laude in Visual Arts, specializing in sculpture, at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. She earned a master's degree in photography at the school Cfp Bauer in Milan and then attended the course in New Technologies of Art, specialising in photography, at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts.
