Childhood, distant memories, dream that overlaps reality: these are the main themes of the paintings by Domenico Ruccia (Bari, 1986) exhibited from 12th December 2017 to 9th January 2018 at the exclusive Coffe shop at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome, reserved space for the most promising artists of Italian contemporary scene.
The exhibition includes 10 paintings from the “Toys” series: the aim is to reawaken to the observer the process of memory, guiding him through a metaphysical world, thanks to a painting situated exactly midway between classical and contemporary.
This works include the essentials of the artist’s poetics: the strong chromatic contrasts, the dreamlike atmospheres and the connection with the classical pictorial tradition making these artworks extremely suggestive.
But the artist’s purpose is not restricted to nostalgic impressions, it search for an interaction with the observer, a link to sharing emotions. Therefore the memories represents an opportunity to reach something bigger: an introspective journey for a different psychological dimension.
