Paolo Campagnolo – Shapes of Light

New solo exhibition in New York @ Time Arts Gallery

Secret Essence of Italy is so excited to present Shapes of Lights, the first solo exhibition in New York by Paolo Campagnolo, at Time Arts Gallery, 178 Bleecker Street, from January 17 to 23.

Many Paolo Campagnolo’s pieces are in private collections worldwide and, notably, Bulgari has commissioned three iconic portraits of Liz Taylor which are displayed in their boutiques in Moscow, Russia; Paris, France; and in their flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

The exhibition features some of the most important masterpieces by Campagnolo, Arazzi, and the new series of Grimaces and Masks.

Artist ( Description ): 

Many Paolo Campagnolo’s pieces are in private collections worldwide and, notably, Bulgari has commissioned three iconic portraits of Liz Taylor which are displayed in their boutiques in Moscow, Russia; Paris, France; and in their flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

The exhibition features some of the most important masterpieces by Campagnolo, Arazzi, and the new series of Grimaces and Masks.

Causality and action guide Paolo’s pictorial language, which finds, in the reflected light, the ideal way to communicate with the observer. Pigmented glues, gold and silver leaves, metal and canvas are attacked by the action of acids for coloring. Canvases as well as celluloid are cut and shaped by hand, painted with iridescent, metallic colors before being exposed to combustion or treated with acids to bring out the luminescent surfaces. Thus, the articulated surfaces are defined by points of light, spreading out in different directions, creating yet more color. The combination of colors within the tapestry creates depth, movement and even a 3-D effect. This alchemic process renders tapestries part painting, and part sculpture.

Other Info: 

Paolo Campagnolo was born in Rome in 1965. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. From 1989 to 1995 he lived between London, Berlin and Rome and worked all over the world from Istanbul to Tokyo, from New York to Sidney, always deepening and researching new pictorial languages. Currently he lives in Rome and Venice.

For many years he worked with Salvo Biondo as the artistic duo CampagnoloBiondo.

The artist creates works commissioned by collectors in Europe, the Middle East and Australia and exhibits in international galleries as well as in residential and commercial spaces
