Every time I have five minutes and I’m in the centre of Torino, I send a text to my friend Raffaella, or I simply drop by in her art gallery, to check what’s going on. Depending on the moment of the day, it is always the right time for a coffee or a glass of wine.
Last time I went there I was literary overwhelmed by colours. Pink, light blue, yellow, all the tones of sorbets. Those you eat in sunny summer days. Glossy pieces of art which seemed to whisper: touch me. What is that and why do I feel like Alice in wonderland?
I can assure you no glass of wine got involved, it was just the first time I was admiring the work of Lisa Bartleson.
Lisa Bartleson is the artist heir of the Light and Space movement. During 60s/70s, this movement gathered together artists whose particular use of light was a tool to create spaces capable of intensifying the individual perception.
Lisa uses the mosaic technique: each work is made by hundreds of small pieces of Mylar – a plastic material born in the US during 60s to satisfy artists in their desire of innovation and of pursuing new aims and emotions – with the artistic approach called accumulation. These technique has been experimented many times during the Twentieth Century but with Lisa it becomes gesture, essential to release her creativity. Furthermore, the surface of this new mosaic and the whole work is “drenched”, immersed in transparent resin, which makes it completely glossy and reflecting.
The exhibition is a pure pleasure for the eyes. I really suggest you to visit it. It is free and it is open until September 21st 2014. Here below all the details.
