ongoing Alexander Rome

The show

Alessandro Roma has activated a compositional and aesthetic mechanism free from temporal ties. His works fluctuate in a dimension in which the dates of realization are not of paramount importance and always appear poised between sculpture, painting and design, winking at the possibility of multiple belongings. And yet, their location can only exist in the sculptural and pictorial context as their use, in everyday life, would be impossible.

Just as many experiences and aesthetics from which he draws without however "joining" to any, finding an autonomous place in the history of contemporary art. Above all ceramics find their own precise space in the vast current panorama where it is among the few to determine its own autonomous and recognizable aesthetics. His “vases, above all, present themselves ambiguously and formally as objects intended for domestic use and then prove impossible to host other living forms as they are already overflowing with internal life. This sort of womb of the object, offered to the viewer's gaze, appears as a "cave" in which the pulsating organs of life appear in all their radiant vitality. Branches and leaves intertwine with other shapes with dazzling colors and the harmony of the work echoes that of true nature.
