As ambassador Rebirth/Third Paradise Proiect of Michelangelo Pistoletto, Cittadellarte of Biella, Italy. Daniela Gorla Fossa has taken part in several exhibitions. Her recent artworks are all inspired by the environmental art. Since 2012 she is concerned with Digital Art recycling parts of communication that invade the social networks in general. From the chaos of communication and from the signs of nature, she is able to create a language full of symbols and deep sensorial colours. Her recent artistic researches are a mix of art, nature, sacredness and environment. Her artistic installations show different social problems. Her great environmental installations, carried out with branches and arboreal materials, are about the theme of nature. The “Great Mother” belongs to a project of new environmental installations site specific which interact with the children and with the people living in the areas. Her “Border Rivers” belongs to a series of Digital Art works where wounded female bodies, hurt by men, are willing to express a border, a frontier. In this work the female bodies represent a metaphor of peace and earth injured by humans.
