The city of Rieti at the Gallery of the Municipality of Rieti, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II inaugurates on May 13 the two-person exhibition of the painters Giuseppe Zingaretti and Nicoletta Sciannameo.
On May 13 at 5:30 pm Professor Ileana Tozzi will speak.
The exhibition will run until May 24.
Giuseppe Zingaretti born in Rome, after classical studies began his apprenticeship under the guidance of his father Antonio, a talented portraitist, then, with the Franciscan Ugolino da Belluno he learned most of the painting techniques.
After a visit to the museum in Rome, fascinated by the watercolors of Ettore Roesler Franz, he devoted himself almost exclusively to water painting.
Nicoletta Sciannameo is an artist driven by the need to continuously seek new creative horizons, emotions ranging from experimentation with new materials and techniques to the need to return to the past, to the classic, to the roots. A continuous stimulus that combines the aesthetics of the current world with that of the old masters.
Self-taught, he has been painting since the age of 13.
He attended the Liceo Scientifico Carlo Jucci in Rieti. Graduated in Architecture at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. Followed the courses of History of the Art of prof. Carmine Benincasa and Achille Bonito Oliva. Thesis in History of Architecture with Prof. Arnaldo Bruschi. His works are part of several private collections in Italy and abroad.
Both are part of the Association 100 Painters Via Margutta.
The two artists share the radical innovations brought by the principle of painting, to the rapid and irregular brushstrokes that allow to highlight the spontaneity, movement and iridescent qualities of light. The splendid reproductions also offer a closer look at the unusual new perspectives sought and the original palette of pure colors, such as the numerous bright and lively shades that have given the canvases an unprecedented chromatic intensity.
With their way of spreading color as an incisive sign of strength and vitality, they create paintings that break the figural patterns of tradition.
This way of painting makes use of an even violent drafting given by the colors of the shadow areas that tear the perspectives like disturbing wounds.
The marking of subjects or landscapes, under the recognition of an extraordinarily acute gaze, operates as an element of transformation of visual sensations in curves in rough lines and colors, stimulating emotional vibrations in observing, even before the indubitable aesthetic appreciation that arouses the compositional balance of representation.
On these painters he acts as a stimulus to weave a game above all sign, in cases where the colors are crowded on brighter shades and on wider drafts.
