BC Gallery is proud to present „Line-Breeding“ a solo exhibition by Italian artist Fabio D’Aroma. The opening reception will be on Saturday, September 10th, from 3 – 7 pm at Libauerstraße 14. D’Aroma’s first solo exhibition in Germany is open to the public for viewing through October 22nd.
10th September – 22nd October
Wednesday – Saturday, 1 – 6 pm
„Line-Breeding“ is the European introduction of D’Aroma’s procession project in which he creates separate series of oil-on-canvas paintings that will fit into a three hundred figure frieze. The show contains new studies for the upcoming segment, as well as some pieces from the past two segments, “Retrocorionica” and “West of Ovest”. The title of the show is a term used in animal husbandry to describe a softer form of inbreeding. While less likely to cause problems in the first generation than does inbreeding, over time, line breeding can reduce the genetic diversity of a population and cause problems related to a too-small gene pool that may include an increased prevalence of genetic disorders. In D’Aroma’s work, lines and shapes and their grotesque exaggerations dominate the empty surface of the canvases. Through this expressive figuration, he intentionally distances himself from photorealism. He employs off-white backgrounds and disparate historical-political references to create figures that only look related by marching together for a common reactionary purpose.
Italian artist Fabio D’Aroma was born in 1973 in Pescara, Italy and graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome in 1997, with his thesis studies concentrated on Caravaggio. Exhibiting regularly since the early 2000’s he spent the last fifteen years in the United States, mostly New York. Heavily influenced by Caravaggio and the grotesque figuration, Fabio is interested in deconstructing the idea of high art in painting. In 2010, he began working on the procession project, in which 30×56 paintings fit into a three-hundred character frieze. The first segment was displayed at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, the second at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York. He now lives and works in Italy.
