“I love to draw what I see… I can be struck by a glimpse of an object, translating on paper or clay an essence that is essentially my poetry of signs, sum of “emotional layers”, altered by visual perception. My art is an instrument in dialogue with the unconscious, in which the living figure occupies a relevant place. The portrait as a landscape of the soul, becomes a bridge between what appears and what contains man in his essence”
Francesco Bancheri lives and works in Rome, where he was born in 1978. After studying at the art school he graduated in scenography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He loves art, music, and more than anything, going around with his motorcycle.
Ombretta Gamberale, graduated in literature and philosophy with specialization in history of theater at Rome University La Sapienza and has been working in theatre for many years. Her artistic research begins with the body, and investigates its relationship with the objective and performative space, but the measure and gesture which organise the performers’ geometrical and physical presence translated into graphic signs. Signs and thread like lines act as proper pillars of this language.
Born in Rome, Gio Pistone threw herself in painting murals at a young age, from the walls of her room to those of her mother’s office. Her subjects of choice, typically fantastical creatures bordering on monsters, are characterized by strong colors that also presented themselves in her nightmares. Drawing them the morning after was the idea of her mother, then a psychology student, and soon the nightmares during into the visions that she continues to draw.
I love the approximate forms of color.
The movement that the color offers to the shape is the Muse of my thoughts, in continuous transformation.
Like a truffle dog, I follow the traces of my sign to the discovery of inexhaustible surprises
Matter and music of my thoughts.
