Next Saturday, on October 15th, Rome’s Wunderkammern gallery will be presenting “Clima Estremo” (Extreme Weather) a new solo show by Rome-based artist Tellas.

Known for his close study of nature, Tellas work gives shape to abstract organic patterns and a poetic minimalism that strives to create beautiful and meditative pieces that invite the viewer to explore untouched landscapes through the use of abstracted nature based motifs.
“Clima Estremo” represents the starting point of a new research that focus on the effects of Climate Change, being the show an artistic journey that answers to the need to return to a more intimate connection with Nature.

‘Through convulsive gestures and feverish strokes, Tellas initially wants us to feel as an external factor with respect to Nature. A Nature that can be violent, frightening, not under our control and dysfunctional. However, his artworks subsequently invite us to establish a novel rapprochement to a Nature that is indeed comforting and savior and that embraces and completely pervades the human race towards a balanced harmonious future.’

‘Clima Estremo’ will feature a new body of work consisting of canvases, textiles, works on paper and engravings, along with an installation and a video. In addition to this a limited edition silkscreen will be released as part of the exhibition as well as an indoor site-specific installation in collaboration with Outdoor festival and titled Punti di Vista that will be on view at the Ex Caserma, via Guido Reni 7, until the 31st of October.

Cima Estremo runs through October 15th to November 19th 2016 at the gallery located on Via Gabrio Serbelloni 124, Rome.
