  • "The solitary archetype appears frequently in Mazzolari’s work, giving many of the textile works a heraldic quality. IsisPan and Studio Stigma Topography are not portraits but emblems. Large in scale, one can imagine them hanging in a medieval court or carried into battle on a flagpole. Indeed, the herringbone stitching in Isis and Pan brings to mind an exoskeleton or armour; for the embroidery becomes sculptural when viewed at any angle other than frontally"
