Milan - Palazzo Fagnani: The Pool NYC - Constante Colore Exhibition

Palazzo Fagnani

The Pool NYC - Constante Colore

Our name is taken from the place of our first exhibition in an old swimming hall in New York City. But, our name has much wider implications. It implies a gathering – a pooling – of artists of diverse backgrounds from different cultures into an entity dedicated to the pursuit of art.”
Luigi Franchin and Viola Romoli

Luigi Franchin and Viola Romoli, founders in 2009, of The Pool NYC, previously a touring gallery, they celebrated the opening of their new permanent exhibition space in Milan at Palazzo Fagnani, with a group show focused on colour and entitled Colore Costante, until February 16.

Always Colour, from the dawn of art till today…

In Costante Colore (Constant: Colour) the works on display are an ode to colour, the pictorial substance that is declined according to the expression of each artist.  We focus on the way of using the colour in order to highlight the importance and the constancy in the world of art regardless the subject or the medium of the work on exhibit.

Andrea Salvatori

Colour is matter, scent, space

Colour arouses strong emotions such as tension, obsession, eroticism, action, joy, euphoria, rupture, movement, pain, desire, passion, surprise, chance, option, balance, entropy, physicality, transfiguration, proportion, coherence.

Black and white gain significance in Art History

 Colour becomes clarity with Impressionism, does not stop with DaDa, shines in Secessionism, triumphs with Pop-Art, degenerates with Expressionism, erupts with Abstractism, subsides with Minimalism, suffers in the Arte Povera, stabilizes with Transavanguardia. The artistic movements evolve, the centuries pass by, the colour keeps burning.

Colour evolves, changes, becomes warmer, becomes fluorescent, becomes neon light, becomes non-colour.
