Painting by Marcello Pozzi, Untitled

 

Contemporary Italian photography will be on view in Los Angeles from October 16, in the showcase Lines curated by Anna Dusi and Maria Francesca Palmerio and hosted at the exhibition space Italian Tramer, which has recently opened in 8242 Beverly Blvd.

 

The exhibition of photographs by Alessandro Barattelli and Antonio Di Cecco will also be combined with Strati Paintings, featuring the works of Italian painter Marcello Pozzi. Three different artists, three different styles. And yet they share an interest in architecture that inspires their art.

Alessandro Barattelli focuses on contemporary architecture and its controversial relationship with the natural and human element. He is particularly fascinated by the urban environment and the contrast with the blue sky above it, balancing these two components in his shoots.

 

Architecture was Antonio Di Cecco’s major at the university of L’Aquila, from which he graduated in 2006. So when he decided to follow his passion for photography, the interaction between architecture and landscape became his preferred subject, and he published a book of photographs dedicated to the 2009 earthquake in L'Aquila.

Based in Los Angeles since 2001, Marcello Pozzi also studied to become an architect at the Polytechnic in Milan, but his fascination for painting and experimenting new forms of art eventually prevailed. In 2008, he developed a new technique called “Straticollage” that combines different media (paper, canvas) and several layers of drawings, finding inspiration in his personal life and memories.  

 

Their works will complement and increase the value of each other in Italian Tramer‘s cozy atmosphere. This space is not only an art gallery but also a meeting point for contemporary artists, mostly Italian, who can make their high-quality products known to the American public. An innovative project conceived by young photographer Maddalena Patrese, Italian Tramer aims at promoting and celebrating Italian photography, art, and design.
