Project

"Il miracolo dei pesci" / "the miracle of the fishes"
or how the Hotel's Room becomes like a Fishmonger's Shop.
I am a figurative painter and I mainly paint in Naples, which is at the moment one of my main sources of inspiration. I paint most often "en plein air" and work on several themes in parallel.
For ArtRooms London, I intend to present a series of paintings made in a fish shop.
The fishstore in question is an ex-chapel, suggestive scenographic space in which evolves the fishmonger, the main subject of these paintings.
In this portraits he will be represented when he 's patiently cleaning the fish, or when he's anxiously waiting for the customers, for exemple
This series will be complemented by a multitude of small formats inspired by fish stalls, which are as many fish still lives whose compositions are renewed every day.
The exhibition is accompanied by sound recordings that recreate the atmosphere of the place.
And so for two days this typical fishmonger's shop of a district of Naples would be transposed in a hotel room in London.
