ESTRO RI FLESSIONI NAPOLI
From 13 March to 16 May 2015 will be held at the AICA Gallery Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art in Naples the exhibition Estro ri Flessioni Napoli Giuseppe Amadio, curated by Andrea Ingenito.
In this exhibition will be exhibited around twenty estroflexed monochrome paintings that trace the artist’s career.
The “estroflessioni” are a special technique, the result of a materical-conceptual research, halfway between painting and sculpture: expanding the canvas towards the outside, the artist gets a chiaroscuro effects and an illusion of movement, and the overcoming of the traditional two-dimensionality
Giuseppe Amadio uses particular woods that makes curved, thicknesses and steel laminae and, for the canvas, a special rubber paints that make the canvas elastic.
The visual language of Giuseppe Amadio is one of the most fascinating. The artist’s cropped areas telling of an universe that turns the tones, pulsating matter, expansion, even revealing to their framework of this universe.
With his personal alphabet, although falling in that area that moving from Lucio Fontana brings to authors such as Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi and Turi Simeti, Amadio create a visual lexicon through which moves points, lines, curves, angles, squares, circles.
The result is a symbolic and regenerative geometry, the real geometry of the universe.
Artist capable, intellectual, cultured, philosopher of making, he is moving in a new vision of space and time, but also of society and contemporary history, manufacturing facilities that have become portraits of the world.
Giuseppe Amadio was born in Todi in 1944. After attending technical and artistic school, he enrolled at free courses in design and advertising graphics.
For more than two decades he has worked diligently with the artist Piero Dorazio, who died recently. He has shifted in recent years, from works characterized by a poetic material-gestural, to a conceptual language by producing estroflesse monochrome canvases. He lives and works in Todi.
