Exhibition: Silent Conversation By Longinos Nagila, Nov. 25-28 2014 @ Italian Institute of Culture – Westlands
ABOUT: SILENT CONVERSATION
My work embodies my interest in socio-economic situations in life, while at the same time trying to provoke thoughts that are driven towards the judgment of these situations. I consider my paintings as a platform for conversation from within an individual or between two or more people. My main subject is human, with a kin interest in their emotions as expressed in their eyes.
My sources of Inspiration are endless. I am deeply interested in children and women as I see them both as vessels and sources of life. I have a keen interest on world religions and arts. I take my time to look and try to understand the different visual languages employed by artists from different parts of the world
SILENT CONVERSATION is a collection of portrait paintings of women trying to create a dialogue between the viewer and the ‘paintings’, the paintings, I consider them thought provoking and commands attention.
Though not quite detailed, the portraits silently holds the attention of the viewer. It is said that eyes are the windows to the soul, the main outstanding feature of the portraits is the eyes, they are dark and looks directly to the eyes of the viewer, this creates an emotional disturbance.
The exhibition interrogates the relationship between the artist, the art and the viewer, between what the society considers as beauty and ugly, sad and happy, stereotypes and judgment.
The exhibition will feature 25 portraits of different sizes all produced in 2014.
Exhibition: CASUALE e CAUSALE (Casual and causal), Until. Nov. 19 2014 @ Italian Institute of Culture
Dates: Until 19th November 2014
Venue: Italian Institute of Culture
The function and the life of an artist must follow a parallel path, observing this principle. Mario Prencipe gives his works an additional meaning of “intentional casualness” in harmony with the almost fortuitous character of demonstrating his choices. The works are carried out in many takes, during which the artist searches the “casual” pictorial effect for a possible “cause” for the articulation and development of the composition.
Mario Prencipe was born in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) in 1965, where he graduated from Arts High School in 1983. For decades he has led a wandering artist’s lifestyle, during which he has held exhibitions at the institutional level at the National Museum of Nicaragua inManagua, the National Gallery of Costa Rica in San José, at the Miraflores Museum of Art and Archaeology in the City of Guatemala and at the Museum of Fine Arts of Komsomolsk-Na-Amur in Russia.
He is represented by the Shen Chang Gallery in Hang Zhou, China
