Drawing on Myth – Girolamo Ciulla, sculptor, exhibits his drawings at Palazzo Panichi in Pietrasanta


Girolamo Ciulla, Sicilian sculptor who made Pietrasanta his home, is known the world-over for his gentle monumental sculptures of nymphs, naiads and Goddesses. We get to see another side of the sculptor in the exhibition “Il mito come disegno della materia” (Myth as drawing of matter) at the Palazzo Panichi – myth still serves as seed and field for the artist’s explorations, but this time the work is a series of never-before-seen drawings and guache paintings.

The show which features the artist’s familiar themes of Stele, Sacred Animals, Effigies and Temples is curated by Alessandro Romanini. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog of the artist’s work, edited and produced by the Flora Bigai Gallery.

The opening reception is tonight, the 19th of July, 2013, at 7pm.
