On the 14th May 2015 renowned Italian artist Marcello Lo Giudice will present a new collection of never before seen paintings at Opera Gallery London. The new collection will consist of 15 new paintings in Lo Giudice’s signature style.
Recognised for his unique structure of colours, oils and pigments that are densely layered and coated, buried and reemerging, laid one upon the other under various phases of scratchings, abrasions, removals and levels, Lo Giudice’s canvases give shape to the matte and inconsistent bodies of hue and material. Through this painting technique, the surface develops interlaced designs, crossroads and interferences.
"I consider and believe Lo Guidice to be part of the Italian abstract movement from the end of the 20th Century. His art and technique is unique and very distinct, his blue pigment is reminiscent of the works by Yves Klein " Jean-David Malat, Director and Curator
A graduate of geology Marcello Lo Giudice’s works emphasize the recurrent affinity between man and matter.
Marcello’s lively, gestural paintings speak to our existence as an imposition on and direct influence of the changing shape of our planet. The colours, often monochromatic embrace a body of expressions from the muddy and the vibrant, to the dark and flat and the embellished and illuminated. Similar to gazing out into the exposed barren land, that plays victim to the elements of humanity. Lo Giudice’s telluric canvases express the universal connection between the human being and the energy of creation.
Considered as one of the most innovative artists in the second wave of the European Art Informel, Marcello Lo Giudice works have been recognised and praised by Nouveau Realism co-creator, Pierre Restany as pieces of art “…where light’s energy blends with metamorphism of the material to create remote geological views.”
