Dominique Vitali is a multidisciplinary artist specializing in embroidery and stitched intaglio monoprints. While the work might speak to broader narratives, Vitali’s art focuses on her journey as a woman, exploring sexuality, religion, and body image. Catholicism, its pageantry, its patriarchy, and the tightrope walk between madness and mysticism have factored heavily into much of her imagery. The stories depicted are deeply personal and, being through the lens of a woman, inherently political. Her narratives explore existence as a female, moving through life under male scrutiny, religious scrutiny, and scrutiny of self. Vitali attended the Art Students League, the New York Academy of Art, and the Rhode Island School of Design. In the early ‘90s she moved to Rome, Italy, where she studied zinc plate etching with a master printmaker and painter and pursued a career in illustration. She now lives in the New York area where she exhibits both in the US and abroad.
