Il Ramo d'Oro
Il Ramo d'oro opens the 2007 with an important exhibition by Michele Roccotelli. Opened on January 13, 2007 with introduction by Yvonne Carbonaro, the exhibition will be open to visitors every day but on Thursday and holidays until January 20, 2007. On the final day of the exhibition Marilena Mercogliano will introduce the book of poems "L'altra Capri" by Yvonne Carbonaro and Maresa Sottile. Art, full of lyric intuition, intense and vivid, permeated with vibrating poetry of nature and of roots, which emanate expressive strength and communicativeness, that invest the observer with slashes of light. - Yvonne Carbonaro. Il Ramo d'Oro in Naples, Italy promotes their artists' work with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
The expressiveness of Michele Roccotelli is tied to his Apulian homeland, whose nature is translated into a poetic message that spreads in a recognisable space like an ideal landscape. His research may even seem expressionistically informal, while really his experimentation surpasses figuration through the creation of imaginary geometries of great evocative effect. In his works, the observers view comprises touches of brightness, suggestions of landscape, images of colour, sketches of pictorial modulations that are the signs of a fantasy towards a non-decorative representation, rather purified by a rationality that refuses the exaggerations of narrative.
- Vittorio Sgarbi
