ArtMoorHouse is delighted to present L’Utopia Della Pittura, an exhibition of work by two of Italy’s most acclaimed artists, both from Padua, positioning the highly revered and well-established Renato Pengo alongside promising young painter Alessandro Pizzo. The exhibition runs 10 November – 10 December 2014.


Despite their diversity of expression, for this show the artists have nurtured a unique synergy and understanding around the content and needs of art in our times, crowded with a wide array of languages aimed exclusively at dramatization. Simultaneously, both artists, diverse in age and technical training, reveal in their work a fundamental leap of vision, which involves feeling, knowing and communicating.


This understanding has developed over the past three to four years through continuous dialogue – the works presented in this exhibition are the result of this discourse.


Born from an artistic preoccupation that has been a major concern for Renato Pengo for several decades, L’Utopia Della Pittura, ‘The Utopia of Painting’, similarly draws on and aims to unravel brief moments of psycho-sensory consciousness. In the early 1970s, Pengo’s works departed from his academic formation and the existentialistic expressiveness, reaching new ways of experimentation – rigorously cerebral serial structures leading to the almost true essence of colour.

The strenuously self-reflective character and the strictly contemporary themes of Pengo's artistic research, which is evident in this exhibition at Moor House in the works of both artists, placed him in a particular position in the Italian and European contemporary art landscape. As we see a shift in more recent years to anthropology and psychoanalysis, the discourse between Pizzo and Pengo can be seen as a development of an already essential command: the expression of a poetry that evolves in the spiritual and imaginary universe, pregnant with vibrations and cosmic energy, in a space that becomes the immaterial void.
