Marjan Fahimi - Giusy lauriola
18th march - 30th June 2016
On March 18th Domus Art Gallery is glad to present an interesting exhibition of two artists, the Italian Giusy Lauriola and the Iranian Marjan Fahimi.
There is something that links the works of both artists: the research of Essence, in Nature for Marjan and in Dream for Giusy. Either the Iranian Fahimi and the Italian Lauriola present an evolution from a figurative form of art to an abstract representation.
Marjan Fahimi, who is living in Rome since 2004, loves to reproduce landscapes in which weather phenomenon have the main role: air, wind, clouds, rain, water, light and earth as a naturalistic research of scenery and of its poetic, an endless study of what is unusual and spectacular to the eyes of the observer. In the works presented for this exhibition Marjan adopts an abstract approach to her research of the main natural elements, concentrating herself on the contrasts between light and shadow, colors and tissues, trying to give visions of Nature to our subconscious.
Giusy Lauriola is presenting her new project: wings plunged into colors; an abstraction, a flash of thought, in order to fix the sensation which leads the artist to be so much fond of this subject. She started with wings suspended on the shoulders of her “urban walkers”, then they have disappeared in her “women over the world”. Now the wings come back again to be protagonists of the space/time in the painting. Once again they are the essence of dream, our contact with the invisible part of he universe. Furthermore, the artist is trying to materialize them to enable us touching and stopping these wings just when they are fading away as dreams.
The material aspect of the paintings, has been created by overlapping layers, such as the nature of time, space and recollection is made of.
