"Transfigurations" by Carmelo Lombardo


Solo exhibition at Castiglion Fiorentino Art Gallery featuring works from Paris

Opening Sunday, September 17, at 5 p.m., at the Castiglion Fiorentino Art Gallery will be "Trasfigurazioni" (Transfigurations), a solo exhibition by Carmelo Lombardo dedicated to his most recent production and works exhibited at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Lombardo is an Italian exponent of the "Figuration critique" movement. A painter of Sicilian origin, Lombardo is characterized by a figurative style that, while at first was profoundly symbolist and close to authors of the Viennese Secession, has evolved over time into a more surreal and dreamlike poetics. In a sometimes pop manner, the scenarios depicted by Lombardo are the most varied, and while there is a strong reference to classical myths, an attraction to the contemporary emerges.

The subjects of the exhibition are dreams, to whose logic Lombardo has devoted a series of studies that led him to create paintings, watercolors, pastels and mixed media. Although the exhibition offers a retrospective of the artist's work, the main focus is on recent production.
