It’s been ten years since it was an adventure Eduardo Secci . Gallery, which since 2012 has been conducting research and promoting young and historical talents from the national and international art scene. However, Tuscan borders proved to be a limit to be overcome and after the opening of the exhibition space Novo In the Magenta area, Eduardo secci has opened a new corner in an elegant building located in the alleys of the historic center on the corner between Via dell’Olmetto and via Amedei.
The Milan setting becomes a new area of experiment for setting up unprecedented dialogues between contemporary proposals and the great masters of the twentieth century: a challenge that the exhibition entrusts to a specially organized team, under the supervision of Sarah Sirillo.
The doubling of Milan is celebrated with the opening of two new galleries that immediately correspond to the aforementioned ambitions of the Eduardo Secci Gallery. The exhibition is presented in the new space not important who edited it Alberto Physit’s common Joshua HaglerAnd luisa angry And Maja Rosnick. By observing the works on display, it seems clear that for the three artists painting is a comprehensive experience capable of visualizing a complex network of signs aimed at defining a psychological and emotional matrix.
Joshua Hagler Big Backdrops develops the unifying component that invests the entire shooting process based on what’s going on with Swimming Night (for Eileen) (2021), a two-meter nocturnal Rhapsody, in which figures float freely in space giving life to imaginary images that inhabit the subconscious.
Luisa Rabbia reclaims possession of the deep meaning of painting through an investigation that fuses the intimate experience of oneself with the other, creating a blueprint that allows her to reflect on every aspect of personal cosmology. It proves it wait (2021), where the breadth of space seems to be welcome in an expanded form: “I am interested in the connections between the interior landscape, based on personal experience, and the collective landscape, where it meets the other also understood as the physical landscape, as an environment”, states the artist.
Maja Ruznic is also developing a layered palette, where shapes seem to emerge from subtle chromatic overlays as evidenced by Father (red light) (2021) and Square (Mother / Deep Reed) (2021). The artist weaves different records in a search marked by a constant transition between form and colour, between memory and identity.
New project entrusted to management Pier Paolo Bancuto, which has handed over technical guidance to the space for the next two years. The exhibition is dedicated to Tillman Kaiser, is the first solo show of the Austrian painter and sculptor in Milan. His artistic practice blends different languages, including painting, drawing, photography, screen printing, collage, and sculpture.
His abstract work, Mixed Media, is characterized by symmetrical compositions resulting from the repetition and perspective distortion of graphic signs. The artist paints with oil and watercolors on the surfaces of blue models, and frames and photographs are applied to canvas and paper. “Echoes of the historical avant-garde, from Futurism to Constructivism and even Abstract Expressionism to the post-War II period by Cercle et Carré, appear in his works to underscore the continuing grammatical transformation that accompanies technical transformation. – explains the curator – the reference to the modernity of the early twentieth century is reinforced above all by the choice of materials used: consistent and fleeting at the same time, for example paper or cardboard that relates to items belonging to everyday life, giving his works a primitive character, Almost a prototype
The paintings, from which multiple motifs appear, which lead to a changing effect, interact with the sculptural works with a futuristic appearance. The latter, designed using simple materials such as cardboard, forms repeating geometric shapes, evoking avant-garde and early modernism.
