Exhibitions and news
Oxfordshire Art Weeks 2021
Italo Esposito exhibits recent works at the Westbury People's Gallery, as part of Oxfordshire Art Weeks 2021, 1-23 May. The exhibition includes satirical pictures (laminated ink on paper, various sizes) to be displayed in the Westbury Gallery’s garden. Also, a digital gallery of selected paintings (oil on canvas, various sizes) from Italo's most recent production (Jan-April 2021).
Synthesis (2020). Oil on Canvas, 60 cm x 60 cm
This painting is a point of arrival in a research process that has lasted several years. It is also perhaps a point of departure into different aesthetic territories.
Rift (2020). Oil on Canvas, 2 meters x 1 meter
This painting is a reflection on the social and existential crisis brought about by the Covid-19 pandemics. Its strong lines and colours emphasise a felt sense of disconnection and fragmentation, and the loss of a sense of direction as mediated by one's connection with a shared past and vision of the future.
New works in the summer 2020
In the summer 2020 Italo Esposito started a new project inolving experimenting with new forms as well as new finish and clay sculptures. The work in progress is presented in the 360 view image below.
