Marta Pilone was born in 1947 in Portici-Bellavista, close to Naples. She obtained a diploma as an engraver of coral and a degree in Sculpture and Painting from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. She worked as an artist with various groups until 1998 when she became part of “Arte Structura” in Milan and of MADI International of Italy. She now realizes her works in plexiglas, which she integrates with the environment. Her composition is simple and often transformable, in order to include the observer.
In addition to Italy, she has exhibited in Hungary, France, Germany, Slovenia, Holland, and Argentina. This is her first time to be featured in an American Museum.
