After an extraordinary year which included shows in USA, China, France, Germany as well as collaborations with renowned international galleries such as Mirus Gallery in San Francisco a couple of months ago, Italian artist Vesod is back in his hometown Venaria Reale with Land(e)scape a new solo show at Punto618 Art Gallery in Turin.
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”.
Vesod’s academic background in mathematics also plaid an important role in his work integrating 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.
Land(e)scape is the result of Vesod’s constant research and evolution, and intends to place the observer in what he calls a horizon of the events in order to show us a new reality, where time and space merge. This horizon of events is defined by the artist as “an unsurpassable limit in which an instant become eternity of our universe.” In his work, the physical presence of time is the only visual manifestation of the present; becomes becoming in this way eternity.
Land(e)scape opens on December 18th and will run through January 29th at the gallery located on Via Cesare Battisti 2 in Venaria Reale, Turin, Italy.
