Gioele Amaro Just a painting

Nov 17 — Dec 10, 2022 | Paris, Turenne (Front Space)

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
