The age of distraction. Polarization. Populism. Euro skeptic. Trade wars. A new arms race.
If there is a positive to our (seemingly) ever increasing fragmented society, it is the work that artists are inspired enough to diligently channel and reflect. Picking up the fragments and throwing them on canvas can certainly sometimes help sort out all the confusion. And with any hope; lead to some sense of sanity.
From GR gallery:
The link that associates these artists, besides the already mentioned interest for analyzing in a symbolic and ironic way the contemporary world and the frivolous icons of today’s popular culture, is a deep passion for Art History. Infact the inspiration comes from Bacon, Braque, Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt and Warhol, among the others masters, are clearly recognizable, not only in the techniques adopted but also un the subject used.
