Retrospective Art Exhibition 1960 – 2014
at PAN (Palazzo Delle Arti Napoli) Meseum,
24 April – 24 May 2015
On the 24 of April, 2015 the retrospective art exhibition Magia di Iconee Mediterranee, has been launched at PAN of Naples were 60 artworks, from 1960 to 2014, were shown. Journalist Ermanno Corsi, art critique Nino D’Antonio and philosopher Aniello Montano presented the event.
The show was the first in Naples after 10 years (the last exhibition was in 2004 at Palazzo Reale, Naples), after a series of shows in the US, in New York and San Francisco.
The artistic journey of the show begins with the 60’s when Ambrosino’s artistic expression was primarily influenced by the warmth, smells, colours of the Phlegraean landscape, red, tuff and sulphureous yellow. The initial figurative style gradually fades out giving space to a less defined and materialised form.
The 90’s are a major artistic turning point, when the volumes, influenced by cubism, dissolve to become shapeless; art becomes introspective, a reflection on reality, an imagined reality that lives through the Icons: here images crumble and recompose, while fade and vanish in the preciosity of the colour; red becomes purple, yellow becomes gold, echoing the sacredness of Byzantine images.
