Entitled "Chaudelune. Thirteen stasimi for singing to the moon ", the collective is an overview of the most advanced forms of this language, which emerges willingness to creep into the gray area between reality sensitive visionary from the immaterial world.
This is the theme they watched the curators Edoardo Battistini Alberto Gross, identified with the symbolic moon suspended between light and darkness, real and allegory, knowledge and transcendence, mentioned in the title. In the essay accompanying the exhibition Alberto Gross describes it: "as a special recognition of the invisible camouflage practiced by artists who are not satisfied of the shallowness of the provisional, interpreting, inverting, transfiguring the density of the sensible world".

" LUCE E MATERIA "
Saturday, October 1 will be opened at 18, at the Galleria Di Paolo Arte (Galleria Falcone Borsellino Bologna), the exhibition
" Luce e Materia " by Paolo Balboni and Franco Tosi.
The works on show for this occasion to Di Paolo Art Gallery, are part of the series that starts from "Pigmenti e Materia" to "Dissolvenze". A moment of experimentation by the late '90s to 2005 brings Franco Tosi to compete with the chemical structure of the medium used, and their relationship with the media.
A gestural and intuitive work that will be a prelude to the successful "Mitosis" series.
In "Untitled" the color is laid on raw linen, deliberately without the primer, impregnating it to the back like a second face of the same picture.
Citing the author, "Black is more light than any other color can be", in which the absence of color is the very essence (LM).
In "Variazioni in Azzurro" stands out the most material part of the artist, where overlapping layers of color and matter are alternated on the canvas, giving the feeling of a filtered light. The result is a refined texture and personal charge of tonal energy.

" UMORI "
BolognaCentro, host the exhibition of Franco Tosi curated by Federica Terenzi from 28 of January until 20 of February. Between apollonian and dionysian, between biology and emotion, the research of Franco Tosi focuses on the relationships between the various organic forms, investigating the mystery of existence. An introspective view, a gesture, as written by Ivan Quaroni ( Catalogue Synaesthesis ) "doesn't create a complete detachment from reality but it is inspired from the natural world and from organic forms", whose it tries to reproduce the patterns of growth and multiplication.
The exhibition is configured as a journey in inner human being which translates, as the cells of living tissue, with many facets. An inner reality, physical and emotional: the first is interpreted by scientific outlook, the second is suggested by colors and shapes of the same subject of the painting. For the viewer is an introspective experience which invited him to look himself mirrored in an inner landscape that belongs to each individual. During the ArtCity White Night, 30 of January, the exhibition will be open until 12 pm. for the entire period, during office hours.
