Exhibition preview

FROM June 14 to July 3, 2014, GX Gallery is presenting a collection of works created by the artist Stefano Paolicchi at his Tuscan Studio during 2013/14.

Painted on canvas, these are expressive, loaded with colour and energy. Shading, drawing and flourishes of vibrancy characterise the large canvas works from this popular Italian artist, attracting collectors from designers to large corporate organisations.

Born in Versilia a Forte Dei Marmi, Stefano Paolicchi has become very well known in Italy for his mysterious work, which appears in many art galleries, museums and private collections throughout Italy and London.

In 1979, Stefano Paolicchi finished at the “Academy School”. He then went on to patronise the Florentine Artistic Society. He then travelled extensively in northern Italy and Germany refining his creative style. Of his work, he said:

“My work expresses my emotions, memories and everything that comes from the real world, revisited in my dreams: objects, figures and landscapes. Particularly situations that have had a powerful and lasting impact, allowing me to re-live my emotions, such as the womanly demeanour, a sky lit by the moon, a storm or a silent grey day. My present research is a link between my existing surreal avowals, touched by expressionism (F. Bacon). I have also drawn inspiration from artists such as M. Ernest, P. Klee and W. Kandinsky.”

As well as being a practicing artist, Stefano Paolicchi currently teaches at the Secondary School specializing in art subjects in Carrara.

Dulwich Onview describing his work, said:

‘The paintings are certainly surreal and magical, and it becomes clear that Paolicchi is evoking a dream-state in most, if not all, of his works…He mixes surrealism and expressionism in ways both tantalizing and exquisite. His inspirations are Francis Bacon and Max Ernst, among others.’

Admission: Free.

Opening Times: Monday to Saturday, 9:30am to 6pm.
