Contini Galleria d’Arte

18 June – October 23 2016

Julio Larraz is a polyhedral artist, whose extraordinary creative geniality is the fruit of a mixture of linguistic expressions with roots firmly planted in the large artistic spectrum of Contemporary Art.

The compositional absolutism of his subjects that appear lacking any real dimension, recalls to mind the Surrealist and Metaphysical lessons of great masters, where the expression of a concept was entrusted to allegory, symbolism and to a dream-like world.

The apparent calmness, so characteristic of the seascapes as well as in the architecture (whether inhabited or not), echoes the anguish, but also the delicateness of American realism. The solitude of the scenery suggests the idea of a space to lose oneself in, nevermore to be found again.
