KROMYA ART GALLERY viene fondata nel 2018 a Lugano da Tecla Riva, Giorgio Ferrarin e Adriano
A. Sala come risultato di una passione e di competenze comuni di lunga data. Nel 2020 KROMYA ha ampliato la propria sede con un nuovo avamposto a Verona, in Italia
The collective exhibition Ossimori was held from June 10th to August 12th, 2022 at the KROMYA Art Gallery in Lugano, after its first showing in Verona. The exhibition presented the works of six artists who explored the theme of illusion, metamorphosis, transfiguration, and dissimulation of reality through painting and sculpture.
Cristina and Renata Cosi, Andrea Facco, Federico Ferrarini, Luca Marignoni, and Silvia Ciaccio questioned the truth of what appears through actions that generate a continuous redefinition of perceptual data. Deception and mimesis, revelation, and representation are the terms with which each of their interventions reconfigures the data acquired by the gaze.
The painting of subtraction and silence, annulment, and transparency in Silvia Ciaccio is a fluctuating sign that, while seeking an intonation with the absolute, maintains a different relationship with the physicality of the elements. The deconstructive practice of her color is the result of the pronounced sensitivity with which she seeks the essentiality of the appearance of possible manifestations of the world.
The ceramics of Cristina and Renata Cosi take the form of skins, fabrics, pages, generally white, empty, and light supports incapable over time of retaining the memories and stories lived. They are fossilized in a heavy lightness that fixes those changes that they could experience.
Andrea Facco’s painting, pursuing the punctuality of hyperrealism, tries, in a semantic challenge, to represent what has already been represented. His reality then moves away from the initial one to deduce the essence of something different in a continuous transformation of the visible.
Federico Ferrarini, between painting and sculpture, opens a spatiotemporal connection with our world, transferring from the two-dimensionality of canvases to the three-dimensionality of sculptural installations a transfiguring vibration that lingers on the evidence of atavistic and cosmic energies, the same that regulate the universe we are immersed in.
In the elaborate essentiality of his forms, Luca Marignoni debates the duality of opposites, altering the physical state of the material and making it vibrate with unusual formal evolutions; thus, he seeks the vital energy that the matter itself preserves, retains, and allows to explode, restoring it to the gaze capable of intercepting it in its new possibilities and truths.
The Ossimori exhibition created a unique dialogue and confrontation between the works of the presented artists. The expressive force of their works was accentuated thanks to this dialectic of reciprocal proximity.
