"Neapolitan Exotic: Guido Della Giovanna and Setyo Mardiyantoro"
2007-03-17 until 2007-03-31
Il Ramo d'Oro
Il Ramo d'Oro in Naples, Italy, presents works by Guido Della Giovanna and Setyo Mardiyantoro in "Neapolitan Exotic" during the last two weeks of March, 2007. For Guido Della Giovanna and Setyo Mardiyantoro the lightness is an efficient strategy of surviving that permits them, daily to overcome the angst and to give wellness to their own souls. Il Ramo d'Oro promotes their artists with an absolutearts.com Gallery Portfolio.
In the Guido's paintings the lightness is expressed by bright colours, light tones, simple shapes that reflect a simple message: peace, love, harmony. This lyric dimension is changed by the black and white pictures of Yoshiko Ikeda, who continuously withdraws her own face. The photography sight doesn‚t look outside but insight to look for answers that the world cannot give.
Setyo, immigrant from Java Island, carefully uses the colour to reinvent natural shapes arriving near to the abstraction. With a lyric breath, an oneiric sensitiveness, a subtle taste for ornament, Setyo expresses on paper, wood or batik his nostalgia for a pure environment, where the balance between man and nature hasn't been violated yet.
