The aim of the exhibition being held at Villa Panza near Varese is to create a dialog between the architectural setting and 14 works by Gianriccardo Piccoli, created specially for the stables of the villa.
The first exhibition to be held at this villa near Varese belonging to the FAI (the Italian trust devoted to conserving Italian heritage) is devoted to Milanese artist Gianriccardo Piccoli and his work, a choice that stems from the same philosophy that guides Giuseppe Panza di Biumo in his passion for collecting works of art. The pure, lyrical, essential, contemplative qualities which typify Piccoli’s creations are to be found in most of the works on display at Villa Panza. There are 14 works in the exhibition, created specially for the stables of the villa, which represent the search for expression by an artist who is capable of blending the tradition of Giorgio Morandi with the topical nature of the work of Lawrence Carroll. The result is a profound dialogue between the works and their architectural setting, demonstrating how the artist has succeeded in creating a language based on the search for unusual materials and techniques.
