MAURIZIO NOBILE PRESENTS A UNIQUE ART TRIPTYCH
Events | Exhibitions | Art
1-10 February at Maurizio Nobile Gallery, Bologna. Unique exposition of Ducrot, Wolfango and Tristano di Robilant operas
Bologna and the culture are strictly linked, especially in these first weeks of February; lots of events animate the city, but it’s interesting to deepen some special occasions.
Maurizio Nobile’s artistic triptych presentation is one of these worthy appointments: Giuseppe Ducrot, Wolfango and Tristano di Robilant and their works are the stars of this special exhibition from 1st to 10th of February, with a special opening for Art City White Night 2018.
Owner of the homonym art gallery, Nobile has a predilection for Neoclassic art, especially paintings, but he’s curious about new tendencies and how to combine them with the classic canons, in a continuous evolution of expression. What the Maurizio Nobile Gallery aims to communicate, especially with this specific triptych, is that art takes the best from the classic, but it is something in constant movement and alive.
Three artists with a deep connection with Bologna and a relevant importance for it.
Six operas for each artist and a specific idea behind every exposition.
GIUSEPPE DUCROT is a sculptor with a strong experimental approach in both working methods and style. He loves applying new techniques on glazed ceramics, terracotta and marble to realise his sculptures, which englobe the ancient allure from classic roman and baroque inspiration with a contemporary contamination. Every creation is a dialogue between these two sides.
At Galleria Nobile the artistic guideline dedicated to Ducrot regards the difference between sacred and profane, faced by the artist with a curious modern revisitation that confers a sense of deconstruction of the official character and a reconstruction with a new baggage of meanings.
WOLFANGO is one of the most known painters of Bologna, unluckily passed away last year. His art works, mainly dedicated to still life, are spread all over Bologna - you can find some of his beautiful paintings at Santa Lucia’s ex Church, in San Giovanni in Monte’s Church, at the Press Room of Municipality of Bologna, into d’Accursio Palace, and at the Genus Bonomiae’ s museum spaces.
Galleria Nobile proposes a selection of still life focused on food representation; interesting, the kind of drawing and painting, which spaces from charcoal, pastel and acrylic. Exactly the last tool allowed Wolfango to create very big and realistic subjects.
TRISTANO DI ROBILANT is the third artist included into this special exposition: its sculptures orbitate around philosophic, literature and historical references, capable of perfectly expressing the elegance and the mystery around each artwork. He explores different languages and materials, like glass, metal and ceramic.
The sculptor has lived between Italy and England, and his operas are exposed all around the world; some of them are part of permanent expositions at MAXXI (Roma), Museo del Vetro (Murano), Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo) and Museum of Contemporary Art (San Diego).
