Paula Metallo was born in Syracuse, New York (USA) in 1954. She received a BFA in Painting at the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1975. She continued her studies in 1978 at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Urbino (Italy) and began a love-at-first-site experience with the country. After 13 years in the San Francisco Bay Area (USA), where she won the New Langton Arts/Swig Watkins Award, she moved back to live in Italy in 1993. At that time, Ms. Metallo and her husband, Alessandro Montanari, founded the Geological Observatory of Coldigioco. There is a kind of dualism in her research that has followed through to today. Living in another country pushed her towards an inevitable mindset of comparison. And Geology came to fit into the research process. It was inevitable, while living with and around scientists, that the ‘twos’ of research would eventually tackle the science/art relationship. Among exhibitions in the United States and Europe, her most recent ones include: Rimanere Colpiti (Awestruck) in collaboration with a Penrose Conference on climate and impacts in Ancona (Italy) in 2007; (UN)Measuring The World, a collaboration with the Humboldt Museum of Natural History of Berlin (Germany) in 2009; Impact Art, Reiskrater-Museum, Nördlingen (Germany) in 2010; and Devoted Attention, a show designed for a meeting on Big History at the Gallery Il Gioco, Macerata (Italy) in 2010. She will present a show in October 2011 titled, Aspettando Il Prossimo (Waiting for the Next One), which addresses Italians and Italian earthquakes, which is in collaboration with the Museo di Gibellina in Sicily.
