Opening Reception: March 18, 2009

Paolo Chiasera is deepening his inquiry into art history. Within the artist’s research, the identity of the myth within contemporary culture and society is an essential aspect. The figure of the hero plays just as important a role in his projects as does the process of destruction and new beginnings. Chiasera employs this drama for his paintings and installations not only with intellectual reflection and conceptual detachment but repeatedly with relish and great emotionality, nor does he shy away from the pathos of grand gestures.
