No Parking: evolving contemporary artists in Carrara.

The exhibition 'No Parking' featuring the works of nine contemporary artists opened in Carrara, Italy, until Feb. 28, 2018.

The exhibition No Parking opened yesterday in Carrara, in the spaces of the Black Art Lounge Gallery, presenting the latest research of nine highly regarded contemporary artists. The title of the exhibition refers precisely to the continuous and constant evolution of contemporary art, as well as, of course, the evolution of the style of the artists in the show, namely Massimo Angei (La Spezia, 1962), CCH (Livorno, 1973), Roberto Chiabrera (Genoa, 1973), Michele Chiossi (Lucca, 1970), Philippe Delenseigne (Calais, 1971), Maurizio Faleni (Livorno, 1953), Giuseppe Linardi (Buenos Aires, 1971), Paolo Maggis (Milan, 1978) and Antonello Pelliccia (Carrara, 1953).

The first painting one encounters is a large work by Giuseppe Linardi, who comes to Carrara with a radically new work compared to his previous productions: a monumental collage somewhere between the abstract and the figurative created with scraps of paintings he made himself and colored with his usual vivid, iridescent colors. Opposite Linardi’s work, the public will be able to find some paintings by Paolo Maggis, who proposes a painting that refers toabstract expressionism of an American matrix. On the same wall, a large dark canvas by Roberto Chiabrera, the darkest work of those in the exhibition, through an abstract painting takes on the task of expressing the artist’s inner travail. Opposite his work are two delicate paintings by Massimo Angei, with their references to nature and a technique reminiscent ofImpressionism.

In the next room, Philippe Delenseigne revisits textural abstraction by mediating with the spatial investigations of artists such as Scheggi and Simeti to propose a canvas that literally “escapes” from the spaces of the support through geometric castings of silicone and hot wax. In front of Delenseigne’s work are some paintings by Pelliccia, who proposes a geometric abstractionism made from computer-generated drawings. Next to it, works by Faleni, who works on aluminum plates looking for iridescent effects using only natural pigments. Finally, the path ends with CCH’s work, a white canvas painted on the edges to create a frame made of only color, and a realization by Michele Chiossi, a geometric painting with the sharp pixel-like shapes typical of the Lucchese artist.

The exhibition, curated by Nicola Ricci, is open until Feb. 28, 2018, with free admission. Hours: Tuesday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
