Georgina Spengler: Thàlassa | Ouranòs

17 May-30 June. MAC Maja Arte Contemporanea presents Thàlassa | Ouranòs, an exhibition of ten diptychs by the Rome-based painter Georgina Spengler. Created with oil and charcoal on wood, the works take their starting point from a colour stain which is then pressed onto another wooden panel to form the diptych.
Claudio Zambianchi, who wrote the critical text to accompany the exhibition, describes the ten works as conjuring an "aerial and abyssal" world, whose skies are filled with "fantastically shaped clouds" while its seas contain "gorgons and creatures from the deep, creatures more related to mythology than zoology." Curated by Daina Maja Titonel, the exhibition opens at 18.00 on Friday 17 May. For details see website.

Born in Athens, Spengler has lived in Rome since 1982 and has exhibited continuously over the last three decades. Her paintings often deal with poetry, and her work also featured in the exhibition Cover Art for Wanted in Rome, appearing on a Wanted in Rome cover in May 2010.
