Politi’s new exhibition presents over twenty large paintings that divide into two groups: large colorful abstract paintings which he refers to as interior landscapes; and portraits based on a 1770 work by the neoclassical Italian painter Gaetano Gandolfi of a bearded man, an image that reminded Politi of his father, who died aged 78 when the artist was just 16. Some of the paintings include a frame with a bronze “ouroboros”, the ancient emblem of a snake biting its own tail – a symbol of eternity – hinting at the cyclical nature of life and art.
Gianni Politi (1986, Rome) lives and works in Rome.
