Numerology is said to be infallible. Three is A Golden Number, Sacred, which
contains the extraordinary powers of energy, creativity and the ability to
regeneration and growth. And Three are the sides of the triangle, geometric figure characterized by ancient meanings, metaphor for the encounter between Heaven, Earth and Man.
From the Mayan civilization to the symbolic universes closest to us, the references recur frequent and often analogous, even if in disparate places and contexts.
Do you want to tie these ancient wisdoms to a contemporary art exhibition today?
Maybe not. Or maybe yes, if you consider the art and the gesture that underlies the carriers of timeless values. Kandinsky used the triangle as leitmotif of many abstract paintings rich in spiritualism, Aldo Rossi introduced the elements constitutive of architectural projects full of archetypes, always current.
Here, at the Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery we inaugurate “Trenta per Trenta - The infinite forms of art", an exhibition of ten artists, each in charge of
creating a work that responds to the 30 x 30 cm measures.
One work each, ten in all, a seal, even in different forms, a lasting pact with collectors, these directly involved in Oblong's life by taste affinity and
customs of art.
Emanuela Venturini and Paola Marucci of Oblong, gallery inaugurated a year ago in Forte dei Marmi, twinned with the homonymous headquarters created in Dubai (Bluewaters) last October, wanted to launch a friendly challenge, kicking off the summer season with this collective exhibition set up next to the personal exhibition by Igor Mitoraj "Essere Mito", organized until 20 September in the new spaces which were added this summer to the gallery itself, duplicating its surface.
In order to produce a series of unique works, which will remain a memory of
a very particular moment, some of the artists are gathered together, in particular Stefano Bombardieri, Vanni Cuoghi, Roberta Dazzi, Resi Gilardello, Oki Izumi, Tiziana Lorenzelli, Flavio Lucchini, Antonio Nocera, Sonia Quaroni, andSerero Pop Art.
The poetics of each one is expressed through the "in nuce" works, is an alchemical synthesis of formal languages, techniques and materials, as well as an instrument of triangulation useful for fixing the spatial, expressive and emotional relationships that bind among them the Three Motors of Art: precisely the artist, the gallery owner and the collector.
