Dio Horia is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition in the gallery by American artist, Matthew Palladino that will take place at the historical Parnassos Literary Society.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, 27 November at 19:00 in the presence of the artist.
The exhibition is called “Ouroboros”, and features six new works. For this exhibition, Palladino continues his exploration into the medium of sculptural relief as contemporary painting. While inspired by ancient art and the themes and motivations that drove its creation, Palladino’s new work is firmly rooted in and influenced by the contemporary world and the image and objects that have left their mark on the collective conscious. The artist is inspired, despite lacking the ancient or classical inspiration in belief of gods or kings, to create a new set of idols for the current age. The new work employs in its production cutting edge technology, including 3D design and additive manufacturing to create and produce the structure of the reliefs. The three dimensional forms are then treated with a high level of craftsmanship and more traditional hand brushed painting methods to achieve an image/object that is a balanced hybrid of both old and new creative practices.
