" Luce e Materia " Two Person Show - Galleria Di Paolo Arte - Bologna - Italy

saturday 01 october 2016 - 06:57

Galleria Di Paolo Arte
Galleria Falcone Borsellino 4 a / b
40123 - Bologna
October 1 to November 1 2016



Saturday, October 1 from 18.00




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.

Bologna Centro per la Cultura

Via Santo Stefano 38/d/e

January 28 - February 20



Saturday January 30 - 2016

Gallery Hours: 8 to 12 pm.





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.

We have recently entered the era of "Big Neuroscience," with major, long-term, collaborative research projects in the United States and Europe devoted to creating a complete picture and understanding of the human brain. Not surprisingly, these "heady" times for neuroscience are having a domino effect in the arts.
Artists have long reflected upon the nature of perception, memory, and emotion in their art. But recent breakthroughs in understanding the brain, accompanied by access to its visualizations, are provoking the imaginations of artists in new ways.
Twenty-seven artists and two scientist-artists were selected from 156 entrants from around the world by the distinguished Co-Jurors: Stephen Nowlin, artist & Director of the Williamson Gallery at at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California; and Anjan Chatterjee, the Elliott Professor and Chief of Neurology at Pennsylvania Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
