Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2 through April 2 at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood, located at 62nd NE 27th Street.

About

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics.

In his methodic and objective processes, he uses visual icons - screws, stairs, fragments of objects, tropical symbols, urban spaces, etc - and deconstructs them using only their essential aspects. He is an artist of strict formal rigor whose work includes constructive and conceptual approaches.

Tozzi has shown his work in solo exhibitions at the Casa Brasileira Museum in Sao Paulo, Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Museum Andrade Muricy in Curitiba, Museum of Modern Art in Cascavel, Museum of Modern Art in Londrina and in several art galleries both in Brazil and abroad, including Museo D’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce and Cecilia Brunson Projects. Additionally, Tozzi has executed murals for public spaces in the city of Sao Paulo and has been awarded many international prizes for his works.
