Luigi Carboni was born in Pesaro where he lives and works. He has come to be seen as one of the most engaging Italian painters of his generation. And yet often he presents his work in the guise of sculpture…but the surface of his canvases has coagulated and thickened in places: paint stands up from the plane, it catches and reflects light and shade. When three-dimensional forms are employed – as they often are without any immediately apparent reference to the traditional accoutrements of painting – their surface too exerts its pre-eminence: it may be gleaming gold or silver, crusty or smooth. But it still refers to painting.
