GIANNI DE MARCHI

The Kaleidoscope of the Mind
April 24 - May 14, 2015
Reception: Thursday April 30, 2015 6-8 PM

The narratives in Gianni De Marchi’s oil paintings allow for diverse interpretation. He tips his hat to the aesthetics of tarot cards and Renaissance symbolism while exploring in his unique style a variety of surreal landscapes. De Marchi’s carnival of subjects display a fantastic showmanship as well as mystery. His portraits of artists, acrobats, and kings each hold finely rendered facial expressions, seeming to confide great secrets to the viewer. Their features serve to ground their physical presence in spaces of abstraction while the presence of masks and idols lends a magical distortion to the identity of these characters.

De Marchi’s backgrounds disappear into a bare infinity, taking subtle advantage of a one-point perspective and bringing out the rich range of his oil paints. The use of burgundy, virginal blue, and white columns evoke a variety of belief systems within art history and religion. De Marchi is truly a contemporary Renaissance man, and his repertoire includes polyptychs and drypoint engravings.

Gianni De Marchi is celebrating the fiftieth year of his artistic career with an exhibition in NYC at Agora Gallery.
