KROMYA ART GALLERY was founded in 2018 in Lugano by Tecla Riva, Giorgio Ferrarin and Adriano A. Sala as a result of a long-standing common passion and expertise. In 2020 KROMYA expanded its headquarters with a new outpost in Verona, Italy.
From July 29th to September 30th, 2020, KROMYA Art Gallery hosted the exhibition La Natura Del Silenzio, curated by art historian Angela Madesani.
The title of the exhibition finds a deep connection with the particular circumstance we have experienced, which has allowed us to appreciate the value of silence, a silence not total but composed of sounds that we are no longer used to listening to: those of nature. A nature that we have perhaps been able to look at in its most authentic, almost unknown version, with which we have been able to dialogue.
La Natura Del Silenzio was a collective exhibition that put the works of six artists with different paths in dialogue, brought together by the curator for their different approaches to the theme addressed.
Flavio Paolucci’s art is a narrative need in which the reference is to nature in its essence. Throughout his journey, for over sixty years, attention to the plant world, to nature, has been constant. Pierpaolo Curti’s landscapes are places of silence, where life is only presumed. Different instead are those of Valentina D’Amaro that can be defined as metaphysical. Her successful attempt is to restore to Nature the respect due to it, giving life to visions in which green in its different shades is dominant. Luca Marignoni’s artistic poetics is focused on the dualities inherent in our existence: light and dark, life and death, fullness and emptiness, time and eternity. Allegra Martin’s photographs on display are part of a series in black and white and color, made in Canton Ticino in the summer of 2014. The subject of the images is the exploration of natural areas around inhabited centers, with particular interest in the interpenetration between man and landscape. Jacopo Valentini presents some images from the extensive series Vis Montium. They consist of two groups of images. The first is made up of shots of corals from the Spallanzani Collection of the Civic Museums of Reggio Emilia. The landscape images are instead related to an Indian plateau in the region of Kerala.
During the opening of the exhibition, curator Angela Madesani spoke and some of the artists on display were present.
La Natura Del Silenzio was produced in collaboration with OXO Collection – The Gallery – Barga.
