OSAKA, JAPAN.-Italian artist, Carlo Gori, arrives in Japan for the first time bringing his artistic work in progress begun 6 months ago at Westbury Farm Studios in Milton Keynes, Uk about his central theme: love for humanity.
At the End of the Day is about his own experiences and the choices humanity makes: violence, war, perversion of truth, the rubbish inside us. This is why Carlo likes to use rubbish in his work - the packaging that we and so many things are wrapped in.
Gori’s style follows the paradox of life itself - from the serenity of naïvety, defined simply by black within white space to the chaos of violence. The violence of acid colours thrown onto the canvas like blood oozing from an open wound, dripping wet to the floor. The raw energy of fingernails that scratch texture, where water dissolves and bare hands smear.
He likes to use a lot of black. You have to search for the introspective figures conventionally defined by its contrast, white space. “I like the imperfection, like the flaws of a human being, with the extraordinary possibility of diversity. Variations on a theme – personalities, identity but we long to be the same. The need to explore and peel away the layers that imprison us, to reveal the essence of who we really are. Together different. A mirror that we have to shatter to go beyond, to be our total poetic action”. Preview by Anoif Remah.
