Daniele Bongiovanni, the artist of white skies, will be exhibiting his new collection at MACRO, Rome’s Contemporary Art Museum, in November.
The works that will be exhibited in the spaces of Atelier #4, belong to the already known cycle of dreamlike landscapes, collection inspired by Philosophy.
The new series was officially presented as a traveling project and it will be repeated in other international museums in Autumn 2020.
A similar series recently presented in the solo exhibition at the Raffaella De Chirico Art Gallery in Turin, Italy and curated by the well-known Italian art curator Francesco Poli. This work represents the intrinsic beauty of nature.
“The whites, the rarefaction, the luminous atmospheres, the misty treatment of the matter enclose the reflections that Bongiovanni continually leads to the meaning of the pictorial research that, while recalling analogous results of many contemporary authors on the analytical and conceptual paintings, draw with subtlety to the historical-artistic tradition, giving life to an abstraction that seems a fragment rethought of the giver in abyss of medieval memory”
