Press Release

/
Galerie Gilla Lörcher is pleased to take part in the MACROCOSMI Gallery and Artists Exchange project between Bologna and Berlin and to host an artist from the Italian partner gallery L´ARIETE artecontemporanea from Bologna.
The exhibition at Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents the paintings by the Italian artist Ettore Frani and sculptures by the Chilean artist Francisco Rozas, who lives in Berlin.

For some time now, Francisco Rozas has been working on the construction of large, fragile, geometric objects that oscillate between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality. The artist creates these objects from light materials such as cardboard or paper. They embody exemplary visualizations of mathematical dependencies.

Ettore Frani's painting deals with the limits of abstraction and figuration. In his delicate oil painting, which - as in Pneuma IV - he applies in many layers to a white lacquered surface, it is more about the suggestive than the concrete. Frani plays masterfully with shadow and light - and with the carrier material of his works. He actually integrates the carrier material into his painting, so that the viewer can no longer distinguish between the image carrier and the image.
