Lorenzo Puglisi (Bilingual edition)


The artistic research of one of the most innovative figures of contemporary


ISBN: 9788857248677 Category:


This monograph offers an unprecedented and in-depth look at Lorenzo Puglisi’s pictorial world, the reasons and assumptions behind his work and, above all, his results. A journey through years of reflections, attempts and experiments, experienced in a suspended and endless time in this studio but punctuated by exhibitions conceived and developed with stubborn uniqueness. The book contains a focus on his recent participation in the 59th Venice Art Biennale, the exhibition at the Rucellai chapel in the Museo Marino Marini in Florence and the acquisition of one of his self-portraits by the Gallerie degli Uffizi, as well as the major exhibition in 2020 in the Santo Spirito Basilica in front of Michelangelo’s wooden crucifix.

Lorenzo Puglisi (Biella, 1971) is author of a pictorial research characterized by the widespread use of black colour on the canvas which creates an absolute dark background, where the emanating streams of light are able to define volumes, faces, parts of the body, such as presences captured in an expression or a gesture, as the result of a long journey towards the essence of the representation and full of references to the history of oil painting. Since 2015 his artistic research focuses on large canvases related to masterpieces of the past and filtered by his iconography, linking his work with the most classic tradition. He lives and works in Bologna.
