Jerome Zodo Gallery is proud to present the first solo show in London by the respected Italian post-war artist Giuseppe Amadio, with a selection of new paintings.
Sharing conceptual inspiration with the influential Italian Zero and Spatialism movements, the exploration of the monochromatic aesthetic by Amadio is presented with aplomb. By reducing the characteristics of the traditional painting to a single colour, whilst shaping the canvas, Amadio creates a sense of sculptural multidimensionality; granting the viewer a non-static viewing space, and inviting one to not only absorb but inspect and investigate the source of the dynamism presented.
The organization of space and colour is thematically potent with each iteration possessing a different mood; from the regal gold of Lazie to the enveloping purity of Estolo, the gallery produces a perfect space for each experience. Allowing the power of light to interact within the folds of his work, Amadio commands a stylized kinetic glow.
Born in 1944 in Todi, Italy, Giuseppe Amadio has been a part of various important exhibitions in both galleries and museums internationally, including ‘Percezioni Visive’ (Galleria Spirale, Milan), ‘Estro…ri…flessioni’ (Museo d’Arte dell’Otto e del Novecento, Rende, Italy), and ‘Rigorismo’ (UNIX Gallery, New York and Wook Choi Gallery, Milan).
