Simone Gallina

art VISUALITY network Website

Simone Gallina (°1963, Turin, Italy) makes paintings, photos, drawings and media art. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Gallina seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.

His paintings never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By emphasising aesthetics, he tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

His works are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete ages and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in painting. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, he makes work that deals with the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented. The work tries to express this with the help of physics and technology, but not by telling a story or creating a metaphor.

His works sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. Simone Gallina currently lives and works abroad.

MiroModo

in the deep heart of Turin MiroModo is coming to life. MiroModo is an atelier, a free space where decoration, painting, calligraphy, books and words – either written, painted, engraved, or told – will live together. However, above all, it is an “open project”: didactics, labs, factory, experimentation, seminars… MiroModo is a place where different disciplines will converge and complete one another, a crossing spot where people, ideas, art, crafts, will merge and come to a synergy to possibly originate new expressive languages. You are warmly invited to join our trip, participating in a collective exhibition of “Mail Art”, being the central event of the MiroModo seat inauguration.

Please send us your postal envelope by end of April, 2015, to the mail address of the atelier:

MiroModo Via Bligny, 9 10122 Torino ITALY

The envelopes can be crafted with any desired technique: calligraphy, drawing, collage, painting, brushing, or any other way will best suits your mood. We are waiting for you for the MiroModo venue inauguration event and the exhibition vernissage. You will receive our invitation largely ahead of time.

Please fill in and sign the attached acquittance form, and send it in the envelope, providing us the following information:

Name Surname Address E-mail address, website and/or phone number(s) Used technique (if you like to)

Thanks to your collaboration, MiroModo will be a newborn with the distinctive character we have envisioned for it: plural, international, open to all the people who practice these activities - like we do - with passion, dedication and commitment.

Please accept a free hug, to all and each of you. Elena & Sara Pellicoro, Torino
