Ancient Games, the ancient game of “doing
painting”: twelve oils on view in Milan, at the gallery ProjectB, narrate how
to pour a story into a gesture, the personality of the artist, the freedom of
imagination of those who enjoy and observe that gesture.
Two hands appear against the backdrop of a
green forest; paint and brushstrokes depict the instant between sleep and
waking, while profiles of familiar figures move on a distant horizon, the place
where the kingdom of Tom Anholt is born.
In April ProjectB will present the first solo show by the young Italian artist Tindar.
The “Radici” (Roots) start with the artist’s reflections on culture, our identity as living beings, as humans, as westerners. To aptly express this concept, Tindar uses tree roots as a symbol, drawing them on the pages of historic texts that form the basis of our civilization, like religious scriptures or the Divine Comedy.
The relationship between nature and truth is equally important for this series of works. “Concrete, silent and powerful substance: this is the teaching nature grants me and before which I bow my head.”
Annie Morris piles up signs in a sort of
automatic writing, until the work becomes abstract and keeps the color alive in
its rawest form, packing the pigment from which “Stacks of Joy” emerge (literally
metaphors of pure joy): sculptures shaped with plaster and sand, densely
colored, or cast in bronze. A banquet for the eyes, on view at ProjectB gallery in Milan, for the first solo show by the English artist in Italy.
