A couple of weeks ago opened Italian artist Vesod ‘E-horizon’, a new and exciting solo show at San Francisco based Mirus Gallery presenting a new body of work consisting of eight works on canvas and paper, as well as a site-specific installation.
Fascinated by Futurism since an early age and deeply influenced by his father, an Italian surrealist painter Dovillo Braro, Vesod has forged through the years a solid and unique style characterised by the use of stylised deconstructions of the human figure, staggered motion with focus on depicting optical and temporal space, and bright geometric abstractions, all reflective of that “eternal present”.
Born in northern Italy, Vesod draws artistic inspiration from his life experiences. From a young age, he developed an interest in graffiti, which now plays a central role in his artwork. In addition to his cultural background, Vesod’s academic background in mathematics integrates futuristic dynamics and geometric shapes in order to represent space and time in three dimensions. He strives for his artwork to figuratively detach people from a sense of time and the geometric shapes he uses represent the eternal present. “E-horizon” references a boundary in space and time through physics, an event horizon beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer.
The exhibition is on view through October 29th at the gallery located on 540 Howard Street, 3rd Fl San Francisco, CA, US.
