From 7th July to 20th July - Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio
The art of Antonio Tamburro has been identified by the distinctive characteristics such as sign, energy, color, movement. Their combination reaches a style in which the figurative tradition and mastery of the work are at the service of an art that is projected into the future by colors dynamically spread on the canvas in order to witness the hectic pace of the modern era. Not surprisingly the predominance of metropolitan themes such as the anonymous crowds of the big cities, the flow of excited cars and the overexposure of the landscape to images of advertising. Nonetheless the absence seems to have an important role, just as in the works that portray the solitary poses of female figures captured in their domestic privacy or in secluded urban scenarios. The strong and bright colors emerge from the dominant background with blue and gray tones. He captures the beauty and vitality of these contemporary scenes, immortalizing them with enticing prospective cuts. There is a kind of hymn to life that emanates from the great passion for painting visible in all his productions.
The works of Marco Tamburro are striking for their dynamic and creative capacity in which the recurring theme of metropolitan imagery cleverly depicts the chaos and the catastrophe that could be found in urban life. Using few brushstrokes his technique is able to capture the essence and the feel of everyday city life that reminds you of a futuristic age. The paintings, prevalently in medium and large sizes, are structured according to various perspectives which tend to expand the visible field and give a great sense of movement and depth. The lines that define the trajectory of streets, skyscrapers and advertising hoardings are at times broken up by other signs that produce a continuous motion of pulsating and frenetic rhythms of the chaotic city. The preponderance of black and white, due to his other passion photography, is interrupted by bright and strong colors such as red, yellow and orange that create a powerful visual effect.
