Spazio Nuovo is thrilled to present an overview of Italian contemporary art scene showcasing Riccardo Ajossa (1975), Giuseppe Lo Schiavo (1986) and Marco Maria Zanin's (1983) works.
By using an ancestral Eastern technique, Ajossa produces delicate Korean handmade papers coloured with natural pigments obtained from plants and fruits in Central Italy.
Lo Schiavo’s pieces seek to redefine the idea of reality searching for a possible path through the use of three-dimensional images and spaces presented with a high level of photorealism tending to baffle and confuse the identity of the works themselves.
Zanin’s photographs develop a strong interest for diverse cultures and their local anchorages, establishing unexpected connections between the tools of the rural life and the artefacts belonging to different communities encountered during several anthropological researches around the globe.
All three artists identify a red thread binding together remote cultures, ancient subjects and up to date techniques. The originality and innovation of the theme is enhanced by contemporary art’s sharp and brilliant language
