Milano: Mostra "MAIOLICA MAKE UP: spolvero di ossidi e smalti nelle opere di Gian Genta"

MAIOLICA MAKE UP - spolevero di ossidi e smalti di Gian Genta dal 18 novembre al 24 dicembre 2013 la Libreria Egea dell'Università Bocconi ospiterà le opere, in ceramica di Albissola, del maestro Gian Genta, già selezionato al Padiglione Italia della Biennale di Venezia 2011.

“MAIOLICA MAKE UP” è l’acuta titolazione della personale del noto ceramista, celebrativa di un’espressione di bellezza che di fatto è firma distintiva di tutta la sua ricca attività artistica.
Nelle sue opere infatti si evince la non decorazione ma l’incontrollabilità degli effetti che ossidi e smalti nelle differenti cotture producono attraverso l’iperbole del processo creativo del fuoco.
