Terrestrial Visions is an exhibition of new works by Cristiano Pintaldi. The exhibition of the Italian artist explores his personal and affective response to the pandemic. His most recent series is the result of an investigation, which lasted over two years, and focused on the concept of escaping reality. Covid has changed the world for the whole human race. For the first time, we are all involved in the same situation and that has made humanity more united. During lockdown, TV screen became even more important, and was a mean to ‘return’ to normality, at least through the vision of the virtual world.
Pintaldi’s research reveals our complex relationship with the environment, and the idea that the universe, with all that it contains, is about to become a part of our reality more than it has ever been.
Over twenty works will be on display. Pintaldi paints with only the three RGB colours, red, green and blue on a black canvas, placed together in the same way in which the pixels are arranged to create an image on the television screen. The subject matters are drawn from popular culture, TV programmes and cartoons, ranging from actors, actresses, movie’s frames, photographs found on the Internet. In this particular case, the subjects are no longer something that is outside our realm, but rather are something that has settled within us during these past but still recent months.
