Venice Comes to Poznań
July 2, 2010   
Article's tools:

An exhibition of the work of 17 painters and sculptors of various nationalities living and working in Venice, is on display at the Profil Gallery in Poznań. Painting dominates but drawing and graphics also get a look in at the exhibition, called Venetian Presentation of Art, the Artists of SPA+A MOST.

What binds the artists is their membership of the Society for Artists and Friends (SPA+A), founded by Venetian sculptor Matteo Lo Greco. The society was born of a backlash against the marginalization of native Venetian artists at the Venice Biennale and the Venice Biennale of Architecture. SPA+A was set up to represent local artists and to forge links with artistic societies elsewhere in Europe, including Poznań. Poznań artists have already shown their work in Venice as part of this mutual support and now the Venetians are returning the compliment.

The painter Silvia Buosi is inspired by water—its metallic color and all the tiny life in it. Claudia Coro’s paintings, in turn, are peopled with lots of characters and painted in a delicately nuanced pastel spectrum. Anna Santinello sculpts with wire and marble while Silvia Vendramel makes use of synthetic materials in her sculptures. Giulia Ottaviani painted her Laguna 19 With A Praying Mantis on hemp. Ottaviani is interested with the primeval facet of human existence. Uzia Grabek, who has studied at the Cracow Academy and in Venice, defines her painting language as “intimate lyrical abstraction” whose form is constructed with color.
