closed Paola Angelini.

The show

Fondazione Coppola presents its next exhibition activity, organized following the participation in the Level 0 award of ArtVerona 2020 , which saw the mutual commitment between the Foundation and A plus A Gallery in Venice for the realization of an exhibition on the artist Paola Angelini .

The exhibition, scheduled from February 26 to June 26 2022 , is organized along three floors of the Torrione , headquarters of the Coppola Foundation , and is titled Il tuffatore, an allusion to some images of the history of painting - belonging to remote antiquity as well as to the recent past - and a reference to a figure, that of the diver, whose presence in the image can be suspended in space and in an indefinite temporality and narrativity.

This is the representation of Paola Angelini : never fully narrative, but always evocative of potential stories that seem to come from a stratified memory, with splinters and fragments that can momentarily reveal themselves and then sink into a deep magma.

The exhibition includes several major works created from 2016 to today, which highlight some of the most emblematic aspects of the artist's poetics: an image that arises from the materiality of the painting, that is, only after a process of construction of the support which, through a substantial preparation / plaster and rabbit glue primer, thickens and stiffens; a support / surface that gives life to a jagged landscape, within which the figures are called to gather and combine following their disarticulation; the idea that this landscape is nourished by autobiographical and family memories, by stories that have shaped them, and by a composed visionary that has its roots in the tradition of twentieth-century Italian art with references that hold together Magic Realism, the Roman School, and the work of some sculptors much loved by the artist such as Pericle Fazzini.
