“Retrospective” An online exhibition of the Italian artist Cesare CATANIA
More than 40 masterpieces available on the website of the contemporary painter and sculptor you can admire them comfortably from your living room
This exhibition is an elaborate version of the “Retrospective 2019” which took place last summer in the rooms of the Royal Palace Museum in Monza. A revised and enriched selection of works by Cesare Catania sheds light on the themes proposed and developed by the artist in recent years. The main objective is to consolidate the maturity of the artistic path and examine the works that characterized the creative process, still in continuous evolution today.
Among the works on display there is a three-dimensional painting “The man who does not see” (2013) inspired by reflections on the general condition of mankind. The man is immersed in the midst of the society that surrounds him, blindfolded. He sometimes tries to take a bite of oxygen just like a man in the water trying to get out. The cheerful and bright shades of yellow symbolize the background of a golden cage, expression of a society that appears serene and happy when seen with the headband.
Another painting linked to the social and cultural context is “The Embrace “(2016) strictly understood between a man and a woman, and in general between two people of two different colors. The themes of anti-Semitism and racism are reconciled for Cesare Catania with a harmonious gesture capable of creating a balance between the parties.
Cesare Catania was born in Milan on February 1, 1979, where he developed, both in life private and during the course of study, a genuine predisposition for graphic and pictorial arts.
