The Russo Gallery presents the works of Manuel Felisi to its collectors, the result of experiments and iconographic-expressive research over the last three years of the artist’s work.

In a continuous narrative research of a present that finds in the past the keys to discover the future, Felisi proposes his “two-dimensional compositions” linked to a very personal concept of time.

As the curator of the exhibition Maurizio Vanni writes in the critical essay in the catalog, “Many of Felisi’s works are linked to the choice of what the artist wishes to bring to the surface (past present), but the filter on his memories coincides with what he believes functional to the present of the future to plan one’s existence, manifesting one’s being through doing. […] Felisi loves to plan his compositions by carefully choosing the materials before starting his overlapping: the colored fabrics are combined with a raw gauze with which he works in the graphic works, tarlantana, and are mixed with color, colored matter and, as in many recent works, to resin and ash “. On display a series of works in which the usual overlapping of materials experimented by the artist – fabrics, gauze, wallpapers, but also ash and dust – are included in panels of industrial materials, such as cement and porcelain plaster
