Tracey Snelling’s work Chongqing Nights will be on display within the exhibition Look out, see in, a solo show by the Romanian artist Cristian Avram, hosted in the exhibition spaces of Boccanera Gallery Milano.
Through the playful pun in its title, the exhibition Look out, see in analyses the use of doors, windows and mirrors in the Romanian artist’s painting practice.
These iconographic elements metaphorically exemplify the threshold between the private and public dimensions, a limit beyond which the Elsewhere and the Other open up, and physical dimensions against which human imagination, dream and fantasy are projected.
In their being suspended between reality, dream, and psyche, Avram employs doors, windows, and mirrors as real and imaginary instruments for determining a refined choice of colour and, precisely from the latter, a peculiar light effect within the work. Thanks to specific colour choices and glazes, Cristian Avram determines interesting light effects that move from the icy twilight atmospheres from outside to the soothing warmth evoked by the domestic and familiar environment.
The opening takes place on November 23 at 17.
