Wunderkammern gallery in Rome will be opening on April 1st a new exhibition featuring the work of British artist Remi Rough, his first first solo exhibition in Italy.
Titled Symphony of Systematic Minimalism, Remi Rough’s show explores the relationship between visual art and music. Based on his over 20 years experience in music production, his artistic and musical expression have always been intrinsically linked.
As expressed in the press release, in Rough’s paintings visual elements become a chromatic system of pure forms, where colours, lines and shapes are modulated as visual “chords” in a musical composition, resulting in a dynamic and precise structure, where nothing is arbitrary and everything is in the right place. Each painting, along with the musical composition created especially for it, acquires a temporal dimension, evolves in time and becomes an experience.
Symphony of Systematic Minimalism will be presenting large scale works on canvas together with music, written and produced by the artist. The exhibition will also feature smaller works on paper and a site-specific installation in the gallery. In addition to this, and on the occasion of the opening, Remi Rough will be presenting the book #RoughSketches Volume 01, together with a limited special edition created by Sandra Varisco.
Symphony of Systematic Minimalism opens on on April 1st at the gallery located at Via Gabrio Serbelloni 124, 00176 Rome, and will count with the presence of the artist.

About the artist Born in London in 1971. Remi Rough is one of the most renowned exponents of the contemporary urban art movement today. Coming from the UK art scene of the 80s, he has pursued his research both in the gallery space and through public interventions. The artist combines the purism of avant-garde movements such as Suprematism, with a totally modern expressionistic energy to create powerful abstract compositions. His synthetic yet dynamic lines and neat geometric colour forms, whether on walls or on canvas, acquire a sculptural dimension. Remi Rough has exhibited in important international institutions and events such as the Biennale of Street Art in Moscow, the Museé Mohammed VI in Rabat, the MB6 Marrakech Biennale, the Urban Art Biennale at the Völklinger Museum, the Museum of Fine Art of Santander and the Maison De L’Architecture in Strasbourg.
