Marcello Lo Giudice

Eden. Blue. 165 x 180. 2015
2 march 2017—15 may 2017

Marcello Lo Giudice received natural science and art education, which both influenced his development as an artist. He graduated from the University of Bologna with a degree in geology and then attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. His professors were the famous masters of “Arte Informale” - Emilio Vedova and Giuseppe Santomaso. He also considers Lucio Fontana, Jean Dubuffet and Yves Klein, the great masters of the middle of the 20th century, his absentee teachers.

Lo Giudice works with the abstract line and uses special figurative means to represent the geographical forms and processes. Man-made and procedural factors are the core aspects of his art. He manually creates a texture surface, where the form materializes in color and the texture irregularities cast relief and shadows.

His abstract works are metaphoric and become a symbolic analog of the Creation. There are no landscape features in his works and the images rather have a geological and demiurgic sense.

Lo Giudice is working in the formal system of the contemporary art, but still retains a sense of belonging to nature in his creative work, whether it is the geological processes or the impressions of the day.

Armchairs, chairs and stools in Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries

18 august—10 october 2022

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
