Linea Appennino 1201, a personal exhibition by Angelo Bellobono, opens at AlbumArte on Wednesday 16 January 2019. The body of pictorial works spans across his latest artistic research and is exhibited for the first time.
Specifically realized for AlbumArte, the exhibition owes its name to the path the artist took last summer along the ridge of the Appennine Mountains, climbing the main peaks of each Italian region, from the Pollino – Dolcedorme of the Calabria-Basilicata’s southern border, to the extreme north of Mount Maggiorasca in Liguria.
The journey gave birth to a group of works realized using original soils collected from those peaks. Included in the works, Monte Appennino is a large painting where all soils are mixed together giving life to the memory of an imagined mountain.
