HYPERREALISM IN THE WORKS OF CAROLE A. FEUERMAN
“The queen of super-realism” is how art historian John Spike described Carole A. Feuerman, the American artist famous the world over for her coloured resin sculptures.
The subjects that have characterised her artistic career from the very beginning are swimmers, women depicted in a moment of stillness, athletic figures portrayed in the act of greatest physical tension, up to the latest homages to the great classics.

THE WORKS OF PIETRO ALDI IN SATURNIA
The largest collection of works by Pietro Aldi is preserved in Saturnia, at the Polo Culturale named after the artist.
Inaugurated in 2016, the Polo Culturale Pietro Aldi houses the largest collection of works by the artist, is home to a library for children and young people, and organises temporary exhibitions of the highest calibre.
I recently visited the Polo Culturale Pietro Aldi, and in this post I will tell you about the life and works of an artist who told the great story of Italy.

GASTONE NOVELLI IN SATURNIA
Gastone Novelli was born in Vienna in 1925 and died in Milan in 1968.
His life was short but his artistic career was singular and rebellious. His disappointment with the artistic and intellectual circles of his time is well known.
Gastone Novelli refuses a linear view of history and any rigid categorisation, but organises the stimuli from reality – landscape, mythology, fragments of his biography and literature – according to a personal coherence.

SERJ’S WORKS BETWEEN PAST AND PRESENT
Serj was born in Bergamo in 1985 but lives and works in Berlin.
His work takes shape through a progressive analysis linked to the concept of the work of art as a ‘machine’, an organism composed of elements capable of generating a space of possibilities and producing meaning, knowledge, orientation.
His latest works aim to create a relationship with the architecture and frescoes of the 15th-century Palazzo Oldofredi Tadini Botti in Torre Pallavicina (Bergamo).
