‘Vernissage' by Piero Lagonigro
Join us as we explore Piero Lagonigro’s artworks.
"Considering that my work is not part of my life, but actually is my life, one can understand the variety of its theme. My art is a reflection of all my experiences and emotions in relation with the Human Factor, particularly the existentialist and poetic aspects of life. I see my paintings as boxes or drawers into which I place this diversity of what we call human nature. Within each piece I strive to transcend my own perspective and circumstances, and to communicate with a language I hope captures the very poetic essence of the situation, subject or dynamic. In this way, my desire is that the real dialogue exists not only between my paintings and me, but between my painting and the viewer. Contemplation is the key.”
During the evening you will have an opportunity to view Piero's works and be introduced to its context by the artist.
PIERO LAGONIGRO was born in Mexico City. At an early age he moved with his family to Rome, Italy, his father’s country of origin. That was the beginning of a migratory life with chapters of residence in many places in the USA, Europe and Mexico. This pluralism has endowed Lagonigro with a rich heritage and multitude of possibilities. Mainly self-taught, his style of expression combines elements of Modernism, Metaphysics and Magic Realism - it explodes with colors and is driven by his own personal history and a Humanistic view of his environs. With each piece he strives to unlock the mystery of the Human spirit. Find out more: www.lagonigro.com
