Giulio Zanet (Italy, 1984) realizes paintings and installations.
The pictorial practice of Giulio Zanet is a way of being in the world, an eternal attempt to understand it. Performing a process of abstraction, the artist discovers that the movement reveals an intrinsic embarrassment, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. Painting is a metaphor for man in constant search for a continuous loss. His work is a survey on images, on the representation of the world, as well as the representation of ideas that find their own realization through painting.
Ambiguity and evidence, repetition, variation, rules and omissions, acceptance and rejection are elements that Zanet puts into play to bring the user to question the meaning of the work. His works do not refer to recognizable forms and the results are deconstructions of the real whose meaning opens up to possible and multifaceted interpretations.
He lives between Milan and Correggio.
Mattia Barbieri (Brescia,1985) lives and works between Milan and New York. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera where he obtained a degree of first and second level in Visual Arts-Painting.
