Rome's Lorcan O'Neill Gallery presents an exhibition of work by Giorgio Griffa who is considered one of the most radical avant-garde artists working in Italy today.
The exhibition comprises a series of paintings on unstretched canvas, created entirely over the past year, all unified by references to the mathematical equation known as the golden ratio. Griffa’s work “deserves a place in the global history of abstraction” according to a recent review in The New York Times.
Born in Turin in 1936, Griffa participated in the Venice Biennale in 1978 and 1980. Over the last number of years the artist has held solo exhibitions at prestigious European galleries including Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Turin (2000); MACRO Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Rome (2011); Mies van der RoheHaus in Berlin (2012); and the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College, Dublin, earlier this year.
The exhibition is open from 21 October until 20 December. For visiting times and more information see website.
