The exhibition moves in the footsteps of Charles Bukowski’s poetics, the centenary of his birth this year. The artist and writer are joined by an innovative approach in changing the register of tradition, no longer an emphatic and aesthetic vision but a vital and authentic perception, with all the consequences and complexities.
The American author was the author of a sincere and unrestrained writing, free from “good manners”, so is the series of pictorial works created by the artist that are presented on this occasion.
These are six works that for several years, some even a dozen, the artist has slowly stratified, without a precise scheme and structure, works in the form of loyal emotional intensity, born from visceral states that overlapped, accumulated over time; expression of past times, which change and consolidate forming a temporary present.
A reading with a selection of poems by Charles Bukowski will take place on Saturday 14th March at 10.30.
