Per i dipinti presentati in galleria, Giovanni Copelli (1989) si è lasciato ispirare dall'immaginario della pittura del Quattrocento e Cinquecento italiano.
Operativa Arte Contemporanea is thrilled to present A Cavallo (Monumenti Equestri e Altre Pitture), the second solo exhibition by Giovanni Copelli in the gallery spaces.
The exhibition displays a series of unreleased paintings instilled with images from the Italian 15th and 16th centuries. Copelli specially conceived the artworks through an intimate journey of rediscovery of the ancient.
The pictorial path represents the artist’s attempt to reintroduce the Renaissance cult of the classical world in a contemporary key
The references to classicism and their early modern reworking offer a set of suggestions and iconic elements, as happens with the two equestrian monuments which propel the exhibition. Remaining faithful to the continuous mixture of past and present, Giovanni Copelli investigates his historical identity and the pictorial tradition through a path of cultural and artistic rediscovery.
Giovanni Copelli (Correggio, 1989) lives and works in Bologna, IT.
