Galleria Tiziana Di Caro is delighted to announce the third solo exhibition of the works by Nicoląs Pallavicini (Buenos Aires, 1976), titled Antihorizon, opening Saturday 18 May 2013, at 19:00
With this project Nicoląs Pallavicini will feature his latest production, in which, through paintings, the artist places himself on the border between two different contexts, in an area where human thinking seems to be left disoriented.
His artistic path is very well defined: from the landscape interpreted in a traditional way, he passed through the urban landscape, which at that time was moved by caos. This caos is the core of the project Antihorizon. The titled indicates a no man's land, where space and distance are cancelled. Here the visitor comes to a crossroad, whose roads correspond to two different production areas.
The first one is characterized by soft and emotional gestures, which evoke atmosferic expression, very intense concerning the colors, but inspite of this, they look rarefied in terms of form. The second one refers to error, to cancellation, and to catastrophe, terms which have already been very important for his production of 2011 (Praxis Mimesis), but at that time the artist's goal was meanly formal, while now the tie up of the brush strokes, and the so complicated matter induce to foreboding. Once again painting is a subversive act, which is swinging between confusion and disorder, between caos and numbness.
What is very characteristic of the last production, is an attitude to perform a very evident pictorical action, which corresponds to a phisical attitude towards the paintings: the brush strokes are sometimes substituted by the spatolato, so that they are always more and more intense. More often he stomps on the canvas, without worrying about the consequences of this action: these footprints indicate a precise will, which is so impetuous and spontaneous and does not consider any afterthought.
Nicolįs Pallavicini was born in Buenos Aires in 1976. Lives and works in Munich (Germany).
