Gioele Amaro Just a painting

Opening on November 17th, from 6 to 8 pm. Inquire about the exhibition: The gallery is open from 11 am until 7 pm.

Almine Rech is pleased to present Gioele Amaro's third solo show with the gallery, on view from November 17 to December 10, 2022.

Gioele Amaro usually defines himself as a digital painter, and he handles pixels with a painter’s skill, although he does not actually paint. His digital artworks are intended to leave the virtual realm and become physical objects — paintings. This movement from a transcendent form with fluid properties to an immanent form is at the heart of the artist's approach. Printed on canvas and varnished, his artworks question the history of painting, foregrounding a new history, that of a reproducible digital image. In this uninhibited back-and-forth between the real and the virtual, the artist steps into a meta-world where time and space are elements of a world in continuous construction. These blurred images, which can be dismantled and put back together again, are symptomatic of the contemporary world.

— Jérôme Sans, critic and curator
