Opening on Friday 15th July 2022 

In the months of July and August MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea gallery in Via Garibaldi in Pietrasanta hosts a collective exhibition of four artists: Valerio Berruti, Franco Guerzoni, Marco Tirelli and Paolo Ventura: a dialogue that ranges from painting to photography, embracing sculpture, while the gallery in Piazza Giordano Bruno exhibits the latest works of Sergi Barnils, a Catalan artist who creates extraordinary contemporary works using the ancient encaustic technique.

In the exhibition entitled Inquattro, or In four, Valerio Berruti, with whom MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea gallery celebrates a twenty-year partnership this year, presents, in addition to his well-known frescoes on jute, a number of sculptures made of concrete, iron and aluminum: works inspired by the suspended world of childhood, the time in life in which we are all the same, and everything has yet to happen.  

Di The exhibition includes a number of artworks from Paolo Ventura’s new “I Ginestra” cycle, inspired by the fortuitous find of a photo album of two acrobats from the 1930s, which he has reworked with his usual photo collage technique and completed with paint, along with a number of works from the artist’s earlier cycles. Ventura’s work is the result of a complex process including historical research, craftsmanship, manual skill, scenographic composition, photography and painting, worked all together in a glamorous mix.

Franco Guerzoni is represented by a number of historic works, including an important work dating back to 2008 and a number of other works that have been exhibited in public shows, at Scuderie di Palazzo Moroni in Padua in 2007, at Triennale Bovisa in 2008 and at Palazzo Pitti in 2013, investigating the concept of time and the poetics of ruin and adopting a theoretical figure that might be summed up in the concept of “archeology without restoration”.

Di Marco Tirelli’s painting is the result of a complex intellectual process which begins with the recording of real facts and ends with distillation of pure shapes and spatial and luminous allusions. The exhibition includes a number of sophisticated temperas on paper dating back to 2007, emblematic of the artist’s research into the relationship between shape and light. Shape is always poised between recognisability and abstraction, taking light as a starting point for investigating the possibilities and limitations of perception.
