Whitestone Gallery Taipei is honored to announce the opening of exhibition “In the Matter of Color” on May 19th, 2018. Curated by Matteo Galbiati, this exhibition will showcase how red, white, yellow, and blue are being manifested differently through the works of 4 ltalian contemporary artists: Natale Addamiano (b. 1943), Alberto Biasi (b 1937), Pino Pinelli (b 1938), and Turi Simeti (b. 1929)
Natale Addamiano's I cieli stellati, a series of works that represent the epicenter and horizon of his imaginary, describe his passion for a traditionally implicit and expressed pointing, the herald of lyrical and profound romanticism, able to surpass the very limits of the landscape they try to pronounce.
Alberto Biasi's art aims towards a close relationship wit the viewer that in it reveals process of active, dynamic, and renewed interaction in time and in the varying circumstances of sight. Perception and movement, alterations or changes, apparent or virtual, oct like innovative elements that strive to acting upon the very structure of the work that constantly changes its physical and intuitive appeal
Pino Pinelli's paintings toke on the forms and tactility of elements that macroscopically highlight the sensibility manifest in the derma of the color itself, in the micro of the hidden essence what erupts to the extreme consequence is the act of breaking end defeating the unity of the "painting." The autonomy is thus inferred through the sensible experience of o multiplication of primary signs (renewed in different colors) that lead the painting to live and acknowledge itself in its bond with the environment and the space hosting it.
Turi Simeti - one of the artists present in the 1965 group show Zero Avantgarde in Lucio Fontanas’s studio in Milan - lies in having elected a primary element as a multiplying sign of his artistic act, safeguarding the identity of his own personal analytical intuition: the oval. This is the identifying agent cell of his being that, bound indissolubly with the artist's direct recognizability, is able to renew, in a repeated and diverse constant praxis, the absolute readability of the surface os a place of the painting's form-concept unfolding.
lndependent paths con be found in these four artists, defining an ideal summary of that enlivened season thai, in ltaly after the World War Il, affirmed the excellence of research that was not limited to expressing the value of artistic aesthetics, but also grasped the testimony of thinking artists, true poets, revolutionaries, and those attentive lo the trends of their own time. These are four masters, untiring narrators, whose vision continues even today and which, in this exhibition, offers an important opportunity of comparison and dialogue through a key core of carefully selected masterpieces The exhibition will be on view until June 24th, 2018.
