The Age of Innocence
A boyish world between urban stories and Edenic allegories. This is the story depicted in the artworks exhibited at "The Age of Innocence", the double exhibition curated by Ivan Quaroni, hosted at the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea gallery in Milan. Artists Fulvia Mendini and Andy Rementer represent a parallel world where reality and basic yet beautiful fantasies melt together. Those images bring the viewer back to childhood, to the memories of the origins.
So many styles (and colors) in a single exhibition
A linear painting where contemporary art, color and simplicity merge to create paintings that look back in time. In the double solo show in Milan, the two eclectic, modern yet ‘anchored to a somehow boyish past’ artists, express themselves through bright colors strokes, with a style halfway between Botero's portraits and the medieval Romanesque and pre-Raphaelite painting.
From America to Italy, the artistic journey that has brought together two artists
The exhibition is a mix of styles and influences as a result of the artistic journey made over the years by the two artists. For Mendini, the path led to paintings characterized by a hieratic, symbolist settings with a strong interest in natural landscapes, as well as great figures such as fairies and nymphs. On the other hand Rementer’s works are characterized by graphic stokes from his past as a cartoonist and illustrator who had collaborations with for the likes of the broadcaster MTV or Fabrica, the Benetton research center on communication located in Treviso.
