Nicholas Marolf, "Kopf" @ Galerie Arts & Lettres, Vevey

© Nicholas Marolf Nicholas Marolf travaille depuis longtemps sur une archéologie du présent. S’il quadrillait jusqu’ici pour se mesurer aux reliques du comportement culturel et social, pour KOPF, il resserre son carroyage sur le terrain de l’intime. Il a composé ses oeuvres autour de la destinée mortelle de l’homme... “Vanités”. A partir de portraits d’amis, il dégage des “autoportraits”, sous forme de masques mortuaires. Il grave ensuite, à la tronçonneuse, pour aller directement à l’os. Par ce geste, il nous propose... [Lire la suite]

October 18, 1634.- Luca Giordano

October 18, 1634.- Luca Giordano (18 October 1634 – 3 January 1705) was an Italian late Baroque painter and printmaker in etching. Giordano has been criticized as being a prolific trader of all styles, and master of none. He has been viewed as a proto-Tiepolo, reanimating that grand manner of Cortona in a style that would brighten with Tiepolo. In this image: Vertumnus and Pomona , private collection.
