Recent drawings by Tommaso Gorla
18 – 26 May 2017. Thursday, Friday, Saturday 1 – 6pm
Reception: Wednesday 17 May 6 – 8pm
The Centre for Recent
Drawing is pleased to present recent works by London-based artist
Tommaso Gorla. This series of drawings mine occupy a continuum between
abstraction and the edge of the figurative. The drawings offer a
reflection on the differences between sequences and series, and the
possible narratives that may arise from these. All the drawings have
been originally imagined as stills from a movie; Gorla’s goal seeks with
these to create a tension between order and non-sequentiality where the
series can be evocative whilst leaving open for the viewer the
possibility of generating narrative.
Tommaso Gorla is an Italian
artist and researcher currently based in London. In both his recent
artistic work and theoretical research, his interests revolve around the
relationship between image and memory, indeterminacy, and visual
ambiguity explored through traditional media such as painting and
drawing. He has had solo exhibitions at Patricia Armocida Gallery
(Milan), Studio d’Arte Cannaviello (Milan), and has been in group shows
in London, Rome, Athens, Milan and Venice. He has also carried out a
number of experimental research projects presented in cultural
institutions and museums in Italy and abroad.
The exhibition can be viewed at the reception (all welcome) or during opening times 1 – 6pm Thursday – Saturday, at 2 – 4 Highbury Station Road, Highbury Islington N1 1SB, London. C4RD is a Registered UK Charity 1123530, and would particularly like to acknowledge the support for this exhibition of the Dovehouse Trust.
