From the Greek " meta-phero ", to carry beyond; thus
Franco Tosi's Landscapes. Landscapes with boundaries of their own, traced by horizons of soft, muted but real, tangible colors. Or perhaps just an optical illusion, a visual mismatch beyond the very limits of the canvas. Beyond we can make them our own by intimating them, as inner landscapes, tracing the limits of a common " I," soul and torments. A metaphorà between real and surreal that leaves the viewer total freedom to interpret, give himself answers and go beyond. That beyond conveyed by art, as a medium capable of creating suggestions and inducing us to reflection. These are Tosi's Landscapes, Metaphorà between sincere introspection and fragile reality.

Born in Magenta in 1962, Franco Tosi began exhibiting at the beginning of the "new millennium", focusing his artistic reflection on the processes that affect the relationship between mental image and physical sensation.
His project, the result of series that work side by side without ever forgetting the taste for the very material from which they come - the "Scratches", the "Landscapes", the ceramics, the "Mitoses" - is completed through a form of introspective investigation , a visual translation tool of invisible processes, elusive with the traditional sensitive tools we have at our disposal. In search of a light capable of clarifying the origin to which existence lies, entering the impervious and insidious field of the seminal reasons that govern the very existence of the work.

Saturday November 06 6:00pm




Introspection and interiority are the leitmotif of this exhibition. A different way of looking inside where the romanticism of the landscapes, with scratched and soft backgrounds, in turn become the fluidifying agent in which clusters of cells are born and multiply. The romantic part leaves room for reason, subjective and objective meet in a game of roles where nothing is more defined.
Opposing feelings share the same canvas as a warning to the soul, in the evanescence of life.

On the occasion of the week of art and in conjunction with the personal exhibition at the Galleria Metroquadro Arte in Turin, we are pleased to announce the exhibition "Inside" by Franco Tosi, in the rooms of the Hotel Nh Santo Stefano:

...Light and dark, lights and shadows contrast and dialogue, in abstract form, like "landscapes" of the interiority.
An introspective, profound analysis, where sensations and colors mirror the weaknesses of the ego, in a continuous search for oneself and the fear, perhaps, of finding oneself.

It founded and directed by Tiziana Sassòli Fondantico deals with ancient paintings from 1991, in particular of unpublished works. During ArteFiera, however, the two floors of the gallery host from January 21 to February 4, two contemporary painters exhibitions: a monograph by Sergio Vacchi, artist active in the field of Informal, born in Castenaso in 1925 and died in Siena in January 2016, and a group of young artists who are already established.
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".
