From June 21st until September 17th 2017 you can visit the first anthological exhibition by Giancarlo Limoni and led by Lorenzo Canova at Macro entitled Il giardino del tempo / Opere 1980-2017– The Garden of time/ Works 1980-2017 from one the masters from Roman Nuova Scuola Romana in the ‘80s.
The protagonist of Limoni’s works is Nature and its vivid relationship with culture. An accurate analysis of a cherished topic in History of Art, deepened with a rigorous and poetic panting work. A combo characterized by lyrical strength touching a refined and complex artistic search. Limoni’s painting is influenced by great artists of the past: ranging from Turner to Monet, Soutine to Fautrier. These authors paid attention to the material and the subject portrayed. The link that connected such different artists was reinterpreted in a completely autonomous and independent way by Limoni.
This Roman artist blended artistic western culture with oriental one. The result of this merging is incredible and unique: the painting materials lighten and the chromatic mixes create more and more complex and airy interweaving- a union of West and Est cherished by a big part of traditional History of Art.
Throughout the years, his way of painting has become skilled and tactile. In a sort of magical a mystic way via the laying of paint, Limoni can send out the elusive essence of time and its unstoppable flow originating a vital flux that is relentless.
To draw a conclusion, the exhibition is a time travel in the ‘80s until today where you can marvel at the talent of Giancarlo Limoni. A journey whose every detail goes back to a floating time lightened by his extraordinary painting.
