ALDO DAMIOLI – 48 Pezzi Facili
Antonio Colombo presents for LITTLE CIRCUS, the gallery’s special project space, located inside the gallery, the solo show by Aldo Damioli: 48 pezzi facili.
An exhibition of original works, never shown before, by Aldo Damioli (all 40×40 cm). A gathering of 48 pieces, a sort of diary of ideas that have taken form over the last few years. In relation to larger, more complex projects, they are like short stories as opposed to novels, starting points for things on a bigger scale, openings that lead to new viewpoints. Imaginary pages where the ecumenism of the subjects is the prevailing feature, the key of interpretation. The style is simple and linear, offering maximum visibility. Works conceived and made in a fluid system, with timing dictated by the images themselves.
To modify the motto of Pablo Picasso, “I do not seek, I try”.
