A collection of thirty-three digital works created between 2010 and 2022, is being presented at Gemelli Art Gallery between March 3 and April 1, 2023. It offers visitors a comprehensive overview of the artistic stages I have gone through in the past twelve years.
“thirty three” offers a captivating collection of works to challenge the canons of the classical mediums and stimulate viewers’ senses through a striking aesthetic.
By utilizing reappropriation and digital manipulation techniques, I deconstruct, alter, trace and reassemble existing images into dynamic compositions that challenge the audience’s perception of reality and the traditional expectations of visual art. The works being presented explore deeply contrasting emotions like lust, sorrow, depression, desire, rejection, and sociality, reflecting both my personal evolution and the broader human experience.
While the female nude and self-portraiture feature prominently as a favourite subject, they serve as a means of expressing what’s within and beyond me, rather than an end in themselves.
I delve into the psychological, political, and spiritual aspects of human existence through layered fields of colours and textures, stripped-down abstractions, and bursts of action drawing, encouraging viewers to ponder their own lives and the world around them.
The exhibition is open from March 3, 2023 till April 1, 2023. Opening hours of the gallery are:
- Monday to Friday from 08:30 till 14:30 and Saturdays from 09:00 till 12:00.
- Wednesday, March 8, the exhibition will also be open between 17:30 and 19:30.
