Coming True


Opening: Friday 7th of May 2010 - 6 pm to 11 pm The philosopher Luca Lupo has described the work of Adolfo Magnelli as enacting a continuous search for new forms of denunciation and struggle against a world in which the innate creativity of life has become stunted, regulated, mortified, exploited, and drained of its potency and emotive force. Through his paintings Magnelli aims both to expose this diminished state of being, whilst pointing towards the future potential of a new form of consciousness; towards a new reality within which the creativity of life can be reborn, free and unconstrained; reinvigorated with an awareness of its own infinite reserves of energy. The artistic act serves for Magnelli as the vital point of catharsis which allows for this greater process of transformation to occur; it is the act which both opens human life up to its natural state of liberty, whilst simultaneously binding it anew with the universe and the continual ‘becoming' of all things. Adolfo Magnelli was born in Cosenza, Italy in 1965, and has exhibited widely throughout Italy. He currently lives and works in Cosenza.
