Lucio Pozzi – GAP

13 October – 2 November 2018

Technical sheet: n. 12 acrylic on flashe on board, 30,5×22,8×2,2cm. 1 installation – 2 banners: digital photos in black and white, pvc gr. 500, 360x90cm; 2 slabs of wood 170x80x1,5cm painted with glossy yellow enamel; Tulip, 11 Sept. 2018, 76x57cm, acrylic on paper; Moonsong, 12 Sept. 2018, 76x57cm, acrylic on paper; 8 nails.

GAP is divided into two parallel lines: on one side there are twelve small paintings of the Diffraction/Diffrazioni series and on the other one a new installation called Fortuna. The paintings are very colorful acrylic paintings in which two color strips never meet. The installation has black and white drawings on two slabs of wood painted in yellow that are placed on digital photos 3.20 meters high. In a controversy with what he calls the “virus of explanation”, Pozzi does not explain his works and wants to stimulate the spectators to recreate the art piece in their mind as they please.
