Since 1995 she has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, participating in Biennal and Triennal of graphic, International Symposia in painting and sculpture, devoting also to installation and performance. Her works are in public and private collections in Italy and abroad.

From an article of Sara Buoso, Juliet Art Magazine ‘In conversation with Stefania Puntaroli’ November 2013:

“ The complex of the works by Stefania Puntaroli seems to advance a fundamental dialogue for the reality of the modern women artists, by weaving the historical lesson of Carla Accardi, beyond differences and variations of the Abstract Art. This conversation spontaneously took place, moved by the natural flow of her vision which interprets the heritage of a cosmological vision, and moreover, magnetically continued through a clear concatenation of subjects where her works find shape and direction.In this framework, Stefania Puntaroli accompanies us through the maze of her imagination and kaleidoscopic vision, which all in all reflects a precise sequence and an exact order[...] Nature and Culture , which is the primary matrix that brings out the radical choices of the artistic act , which Stefania Puntaroli brilliantly declines through the codes of Engraving , Painting, Photography and Performance . The essence of this work finds a fertile ground in the art of Engraving, a well-established and enduring passion that the artist has been cultivating since the studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, in 1995, with a careful dedication, juxtaposed to the idea of sign. This is often accompanied by the research for a multicultural symbolism beyond geographical boundaries where to find common roots and new interpretations on the basis of common traits of an ancient civilizations – this is the case of studies for cave paintings (Val Camonic, Italy) in search of an artistic vernacular language. From this premise, the style is recognizable in the texture of the image where the line, both abstract and representational, is identified for its depth, relief, stroke and direction of different materials including paper and fabric, expertly conducted by the hand of the artist. It looks like a figurative research into the deeper archetypes of the collective consciousness, which results of a series of animal figures that the artist has been able to interpret from either a younger audience - through the representation of imaginary animals – both to the modern viewer, as the emblematic example of Directions, 2013, where, according to an anatomical study, the work shows a great eye of horse, which shines with all its higher meanings. The figurative research that has accompanied the early beginning, is reflected in the most recent black and white works, forming the complex of performance where she affirms her practice by the role of being a woman artist: this is the emblematic sample of Heritage, 2013 where Stefania manifests the presence of the sculptural body in accordance with rules which pose, gesture and act are useful to articulate the duration: it is a withdraw by raising, where from the skin, which is the limit of the representative surface, the artist experiments on her own physicality a series of signs that translate the desire for a return to origins, natural elements, lost nature, as well as an homage to Courbet, The Origin of the World, 1866 . The artistic practice of Stefania Puntaroli is feverish, in a constant search for innovation and reflection of the expressive language, freely comparing her view with other artists.”
