It's important for an artist to have a venue where to showcase his or her artworks. An art gallery is different from an art studio, the place where usually works of art materialize. I tend to compare the former to a sanctuary in which visitors have the opportunity to relate with the finished pieces of one or more artists. My art gallery Art Cube, situated in Xewkija, caters exclusively for the public visibility of my artworks. It has served this purpose for more than two years since its inauguration and I am proud to have this small space which attracts both local and foreign visitors alike. Art cube is open to interested visitors only by appointment.
So my first exhibition in Milan comes to an end. My special thanks go to ASG Produzioni Artistiche and Fondazione Luciana Matalon for including me among the selected artists and for making this international event possible and reachable to a wide audience in such an amazing city, patron of the arts.
So here is some info regarding my next venture abroad taking place in Milan. My participation is supported by ASG Produzioni Artistiche and Fondazione Luciana Matalon. More details coming up soon.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed to the success of my latest solo exhibition Red is the Colour. The persons involved are numerous and I feel obliged towards their dedication and enthusiasm in making this event so special. Below are links to a couple of reviews which portray perfectly the journey which took me here:
Beginning a new collection is not starting over but just a continuation of a journey. Three days to go.
It has been a while since my friend and passionate art collector Joe Spiteri invited me to come up with a collection of works intended to inaugurate the exhibition area at Ta' Mena Experience, a place which I strongly recommend for a visit to all lovers of fine wine, local culinary experiences and fine arts. Red is the Colour is the title of my upcoming exhibition. Needless to say, red is the dominant colour that breathes beneath layers upon layers of paint that build up as finished compositions inspired by local Gozitan landscapes. Red is the colour of passion and rage; at times it can be sensual while in other instances it might appear dramatic. Red is a challenging colour when it comes to landscape interpretation; my intention was to adopt an expressionist idiom in order to apply reds in a confident and unconditional way. And since I love challenges I delved into new possibilities that materialised into my latest collection consisting of 13 paintings on canvas. You are all welcome to visit!
