Born in Milan, Orsina Sforza is originally a painter she lives and works in Rome.

Over the last two decades, she has been creating her “Lights”.

All are unique pieces, hand crafted by the artist, using simple materials such as paper, hand sewn fabric, vellum, wood, iron and plexiglass.

Each light has its own title and gender.

The festive “Marie Antoinette” series move in sumptuous and unpredictable shapes, echoing primitive sea creatures or giant meringues, “Nijinsky’s” immaculate petals glitter like cold fire and the “Bernini” series, simply coruscates, through folds and draperies.

Orsina Sforza has created several big scale lights on commission.

Her lights have sold all over the world and at auction.


Orsina Sforza , pittrice, è nata a Milano e vive e lavora a Roma, da più di vent’anni crea le sue “luci”.

Sorprendenti pezzi unici fatti e assemblati con le sue mani in materiali semplici come carta, stoffa, legno, ferro e plexiglass.

Ogni sua luce ha un titolo e appartiene ad un genere.

Le festose “Marie Antoinette” per esempio, si muovono in forme imprevedibili e sontuose ricordando primitive creature marine o gigantesche meringhe,  le candide “Nijinsky” brillano in mille punte cristalline come fuochi freddi,  mentre le “Bernini” irradiano luce morbida tra le ombre dei loro ricchi panneggi.

Orsina Sforza ha creato numerose luci di grandi dimensioni su commissione. Le sue luci sono state vendute in tutto il mondo e a svariate aste.
