Wonder (Seven pools)

Operativa Arte Contemporanea presents Wonder (Seven pools), the first personal project by Vincenzo Simone conceived for the gallery spaces. Seven inflatable pools hold seven dreamlike landscapes resuming the artist’s latest painting production. A plastic frame with fluorescent and synthetic colours against a painting with a nineteenth-century taste – full of connections with the past landscape tradition – creates a paradoxical and unexpected result. Pools like mirrors seem to reflect the  views that the artist paints in a evanescent and visionary way, creating an unusual dimension where the boundary line between present/reality and past/illusion is basically faint.
