“Un mare di nero.” Roberto Fanari sets out to make art that is both fresh … and moored to classic works of the repertoire of western art – his exhibition is a surprising, unsettling, … and evocative journey through a sea of black.

“Un mare di nero” (a sea of black) is the suggestive title of Roberto Fanari’s exhibition – which sets sails tomorrow at Palazzo Panichi, in Pietrasanta. The Milanese artist lingers where the two ships Artistic Expression and Materials cross paths. Fanari starts out from the placid waters of the classics of western art; and makes landfall in a place of extrinsic reinvention. Much of the work in the show is a meditation on the etchings of Carl Wilhelm Kolbe (Berlin, 1759-1835) from whom Fanari gets the inspiration for his three-dimensional incursions in self-expression.

For the work itself, Fanari has enlisted the “eccellenze artigiane Italiane” – the Artigiani who work in Faenza, Milano, Carrara … and Pietrasanta. The close relationship of artist and artigiano is the theme of “Homo Faber” a wide-ranging city-wide event, currently underway.

The opening reception is Saturday, the 15th, of June, 2013, at 6:30pm.

The show, featuring 20 works – paintings, sculptures in bronze, aluminum, ceramics, marble and terracotta – is produced by the Assessorato alla Cultura of Pietrasanta and the Centro Arti Visive.
