LONDON.- Ronchini Gallery
presents a solo show of works by accomplished painter, Roberto Coda Zabetta. The exhibition will be a striking showcase of large scale of black and white works focusing on the artists most characteristic inspirations, action painting and portraiture.
Coda Zabetta is an avid traveller who has drawn inspiration from such diverse subject matter as the Kintamani volcano in Indonesia to patients in Londons Royal Marsden Hospital. His works are renowned for their rhythmic bursts of paint and expressive brush strokes which form landscapes and figures in spurts of dynamic movement.
He says of the London show: This new exhibition represents a personal change and distortion of aesthetics for me
. I want to express that nature wants to be heard
My works range from tragedy to works directly out of my immagination, but they all involve energy and the liberation of energy, both of which I feel important to express.
