PAOLO BINI

BIOGRAPHY

WORK:

 

With a brightness that is consistent with the experiences of travel and discovery, Paolo Bini’s paintings register the physical perception of three-dimensional space. Derived from an emotional state of mind, the artist charts the unveiling of our natural surroundings. These are investigations into an “existential” brightness that, as Jung states, adds more “stuff” in order to feed “a significant expansion of the horizon and a deeper self-knowledge”.

 

An ongoing dialogue with the concepts of ‘landscape’, Bini’s mixed media paintings convey a sense of infinity. Surrendering the traditional assumptions of landscape, he builds visual bridges and explores the mysteries of what as he explains are ‘the feeling of an inner strength that goes beyond the threshold of representing’. By translating and by ‘giving up the form of ‘landscape’ Bini concludes that energies, the immediate, and a number of internalized paths and choices he makes are all reflective as the traces of each person's being.  Each artwork leads to a narrative in which everything has yet to happen and where our own perceptions of the relentless pace of contemporary life is questioned and explored.

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Paolo Bini graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. In 2010, he represented the young Italian paintings as part of the XIII Italian Culture week, La Habana (Cuba), and was awarded a scholarship from the Grad Kultural Center in Belgrade, Serbia. 2011 saw his work presented at the 54th Venice Biennale, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, and well as a residency with the Centro Di Sarro Project Italy-South Africa in Cape Town. In 2014, Paolo undertook a residency at Scuola del Graffito, Montemurro, Potenza, Italy.
