Gabriele Turola. Painted wanders maps 

18 May - 30 June 2017

Biasutti & Biasutti Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Gabriele Turola, titled Mappe di viaggi dipinti (Painted wanders maps). A visionary artist, elaborates a set of works representingthe mystery of man through fables, myths, legends and dreams. Born in Ferrara, he increased hisknowledge by visiting the museums of his city, and thanks to his father, who owned a gallery, during the 1960s he met important artists as Giorgio De Chirico, Filippo de Pisis, and Achille Funi. Precisely from this last, he understood the importance of drawing, adapting to his works the concept of a finite, full art, given from a line between two points, opposed to infinity, an enemy of art. So the folly, the dream, the drawing and not least the color are found in Turola’s paintings, brightinventions, dictated by a rigorous logic. The visionary nature of these works permeates the thousands represented characters, for instance, the elegant jag pouring water from the clouds like atea from a teapot, or the wizard walking by, keeping sun on a leash as a puppy, or a pair of woman-faced scissors fall in love with a man-faced pot. Reports from Wonderland, wanders’ maps wherethe animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds intertwine in a peaceful metamorphosis.

Gabriele Turola Born in Ferrara in 1945, where he lives and works, of classical education, attended the artistic school “Dosso Dossi”. Since the mid-1960s, he lived in the mountains, having an ancestral relationship with Nature, perceiving his spirituality and magical power. Returning to Ferrara, he began to represent human existence through myths and fables realizing his canvas with bright colors. In 1992 he published the book of poems: The voice of things. Since 1993 he began to exhibit at various Italian galleries, fairs and public exhibitions.
