Telling the Past, Earth Water and Fire

Type: Applied Arts

The exhibition will focus on two aspects apparently distant from each other, but inseparably tied to the energy of creation.

Two aspects distant from each other but inseparably tied to the energy of creation: Michele Paternuosto's encaustic art and Gastone Primon's materic art. A synthesis
of the wisdom of ancient techniques, such as the use of clay, colored earths, bronze, enamel, and modern sensibility , that reflects in contemporary themes and contents.
