AboutShine Artists | Alberto Zamboni
03 May - 26 May 2012
As well as the countless artists who have lived and worked in Bologna over the centuries, Zamboni's work is buoyed by references to history's most innovative practitioners. The skilful juxtaposition of light and shadow in Zamboni's creations is reminiscent of Whistler's hazy views of the river Thames and the nocturnal seascapes of Turner. Yet literature also plays a pivotal role in Zamboni's creative process - especially authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville and George Simenon. Zamboni is fascinated by tales of adventure and the great unknown, and strives to capture this sense of odyssey within his misty landscapes.
