In October 2011 the solo show at the gallery Arte Boccanera Contemporanea of Trento-Italy. "Capturing the essence of its territory, the memory of places, without denying its roots Verginer has built a road of his own, original and figurative. If his poetry is part of a trend that considers her co-stars and artists like Stephan Balkenhol Aron Demetz, yet the consistency of his work is shrouded by a higher vision." (L. Beatrice).

    l' uomo selvatico o dell' eleganza

    Detailed Description : Wooden sculptures in full relief and worked in the round; they rise up with all their mass and volume, with all the weight of their material in the space they are placed in. Forms that in many cases seem concerned only with themselves and their own internal system of formal relationships and meanings, fully in the ancient and modern statuary tradition. But the sharp and embattled handling with which Willy Verginer (Bressanone, 1957) provokes and caresses wood, does not result in anything archaic or hieratic: he does not make statues, totems or menhirs but images in action; they clearly show the work of the gouge, the plane, and the rasp: “all tools with short, hard names that, to those with a good eye, still seem to be in action” (G. Bachelard).

  • Marco Grassi GRAMA  (+)

    Biography : He was born in Milan in 1966 and he lives and works in Mariano Comense. For the past ten years Marco Grassi has been working with a sense of responsibility in his works, always being faithful to the figurative style of his works, never has he allowed this to become an object of fashion or only satisfying a momentary taste. His language and his subjects have always remained constant and declaringly connected to his sense of vision and to the taste of his complex sensitivity, whenever such choices – the fashionable female figure, certain colour combinations, use of lacquering, the repletion with minimum variations of the subjectshave labelled him, unjustly so, a Pop artist. He collaborates with the White Room Art System since 2010.

    Detailed Description : It is true that the privileged subjects of Grassi are delicate and attractive, but also energetic and resolute, female figures shown in fashionable, bright colours, but this should not be sufficient to frame the artist in a genre which is his only in the form but certainly not in the contents of his art. Marco Grassi renounces an element which up until now was a decisive element and part of the architecture of every part of his work. In his most recent works we witness a complete absence of design: the sure and confident stroke with which he traced outer anatomic lines, showing stability in the whole of the figure, compared to a choice of bold colours which transforms and breaks down under the effect of spatula and drippings, is less obvious. The figure loses the factor of certainty and sureness, a base which permitted it to integrate itself completely in the complex weave of colour, now depicted in a more decisive background and efficiently connected to the expression of faces and the intensity of their silence and complice with those who observe.

  • Antonio Sannino  (+)

    Biography : Antonio Sannino was born in Naples in 1959; he lives and works between Naples and Rome. He inherited from his father his passion for art. This passion led him to deepen his studies by following the traces of great traditional Italian masters of landscape. In fact, it was the combination of his ambition to gain knowledge and the passion for travelling that made him visit various museums and artist studios throughout Europe. This was followed by a ten years residence in London.
 He collaborates with the Square Gallery, the Fine Art department of Liquid Art System, since 2007.

    Detailed Description : It takes much courage to decide to devout oneself to this kind of painting in the town where Sannino is artistically born and grown up, that is Naples. It takes much courage because – perhaps not everybody knows – the landscape painting was invented in this town, and in Naples there is the most ancient tradition of research and market: the production of this genre was linked to the Grand Tour, the journey that – since the 17th century – aristocrats, intellectuals, artists and rich bourgeois used to make to Italy in their years of formation. Sannino had the courage to create new iconographies of the Campania landscape, to search for new cuts for frames (thanks to the support of photographic and cinematographic tools), to enhance its colours also in different seasons, but – most of all – he has been able to transfer into this pictorial genre something that no other painter had been able to do when portraying these places: he pictorially reproduced the “matter” of the landscape. Sannino was able to absorb this ancient tradition of the Campania landscape: he has been assimilating, studying and testing it for many years, so that he was able to find elements of renewal; and starting from this heritage, from a technique which was mature and effective, he started to look farther, towards other landscapes, other places, where nature keeps colliding with artificial elements, in the large urban metropolises. Here, the polluted atmosphere, the wind full of artificial smog become new matter to be portrayed and reproduced for the touch, as well as the large flat surfaces covered with bitumen in order to allow the transit of cars.

About

Liquid art system (L.a.s.) is a commercial contemporary art organisation with galleries currently open in Capri (Italy), Positano (Italy), London (UK) and Istanbul (Turkey). Together, all galleries form a system that proposes a “glocal”* approach to the promotion of contemporary art. The target of L.a.s. is to create an international system of art galleries in different locations around the world that operate for a common purpose, but adaptive to the local economy and culture. L.a.s. responds to the evolution of the international “art system”, derived from enormous changes in the international economy and from the expansion of computer technology and the internet. The cultural affirmation of developing countries has challenged the traditional concept of art galleries, relating to the alleged superiority of the economy and culture of the West. It is necessary to devise a new concept for galleries that is suitable to this new global market, but that also has the ability to pay close attention to local instances which deserve to be highlighted. * The word "glocal" is derived from “glocalization” (Roland Robertson, sociologist), meaning ‘think global, act local’. A combination of the words "global" and "local" used to describe a product or service that is developed and distributed globally, but is also fashioned to accommodate the user or consumer in a local market.
