CALENDARIO DE EVENTOS - MAYO 2010

Luis Tomasello exhibition

 

Date: 30 March to 11 June 2010

 

Venue: The Mayor Gallery, 22a Cork Street, London W1S 3NA

 

The Mayor Gallery is hosting the first solo exhibition in the U.K. of Argentine artist Luis Tomasello. The Exhibition reviews Tomasello's most famed Atmosphére Chromoplastique works from the 1960s to date and feature 3 of his Lumière Noire series (experiments with black and white) as well as 4 Object Plastique (experiments with white on white).

 

Tomasello is a leading representative of Latin American Kinetic art, where white geometric elements with painted undersides are distributed at varying angles onto a white surface. This results in subtle reflections of coloured light, and an optical sensation of movement.
