Once again, I’m pleased to be able to report that recognition for the talent of Italian artist friend of mine Gaetano Fiore is increasing. Gaetano also tells me that BlogfromItaly.com has made a contribution to his visibility, as I had hoped. I’m pleased to announce that Fiore’s work is now on display as part of the ‘Dissolvenze Incrociate’ – biennial art exhibition in Ferrara.
Congratuations to Gaetano Fiore are in order, and credit also must go to Virgilio Patarini of Milan’s Zamenhof Gallery for his stirling efforts in helping increase the visibility of skilled but not yet well-known Italian artists and photographers, such as Marco Post Morello.
I also need to thank another artist who is within Virgillio Patarini’s fold, Marco Post Morello for the photographs he sent me for this post. Marco Post Morello’s intriguing photography is also on show at the Ferrara Exhibition which runs until this Thursday November 25th 2010.
Here is some of Gaetano Fiore’s work which is on show. This photograph demonstrates the physical size of Fiore’s work and how it can be used to enhance long runs of wall:
An atmospheric location for art in Ferrara. Once again demonstrating how well Fiore’s work adapts to a range of environments:
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
At first sight, Fiore’s art may appear simplistic, however the longer you look at it, the more subtleties you come across. I know for a fact that Fiore puts and awful lot of thought into his creations. They are the product of a mind which is continually contemplating the world around us, and attempting to create a visual representation of the forms which fill our world.
Here is another example of Gaetano Fiore’s work for you to view and for you to see if you agree with the effect his art work has on those viewing it:
Marco Post Morello is an Italian photographer (and nice guy) who creates art from his captures. For now, I’m going to simply show you some of his images and admit that he’s got me thinking about some photographic experimentation. I’ll write more about Post Morello another time.
This is Marco Post Morello’s photography:
Some more of Post Morello’s imagery, which I don’t think photographs too well. I realise that this may be an odd thing to say about photography, but I feel this because I have seen real-life examples of Post Morello’s work and they look much better ‘in the flesh’:
If you find yourself in the Ferrara area this week, then why not visit the Chiostro di Sant’ Anna and Salone di San Francesco and take a look at the work of Italian artists Gaetano Fiore, Marco Post Morello, Stefano Accorsi, Anna Maria Angelini, Simone Boscolo, Ivano Boselli, Loredana Campa, Enza De Paolis, Giovanni Marinelli, Simona Ragazzi, Edoardo Stramacchia, and Paolo Stefanelli.
