INDIAN IMPRESSIONS : DOMENICO PASQUA

For the first time in the UK, Le Dame Art Gallery present Italian artist Domenico Pasqua with “Indian Impressions”, a journey to India’s holy places, where different themes and expressive techniques that, although starting from the same idea, are shaped by the artist’s intimate inspiration.

Domenico Pasqua combines reality and imagination, figurative and abstract elements, photography and paintings. His works are compositions of thoughts, visions of seen and imagined things; games of colors that evaporate just like wishes, leaving only clues for us to build other thoughts and images.

Places and people are combined in architectural patterns, which are both linear and rich in elements, at the same time. Although statically photographed and painted, nature draws symphonies of movements, games of lines and colors, both matching and contrasting, like mosaics or kaleidoscopes giving off a sense of beauty and harmony.

Pasqua’s complex pictorial effort allows us to contemplate artworks of great aesthetic beauty, which are not only executed with great technical skills but also enriched with a deep poetic sensitivity.

Domenico Pasqua is an Italian and Belgian citizen who studied architecture at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza', where he graduated cum laude in 1985. He worked as architect mainly for Residential projects, and since 1990, he also worked as photographer for a studio in New York specialising in works on commissioned for International museums. As an artist, he had his first group show at the age of 18, in Florence. Since then, he has always been pursuing his artistic research.

 

In 2019 he participated in the 'Artrooms Awards', International Art Competition, winning the first prize with the work 'The Children of Mont Abu'. He currently lives between Rome and Antwerpen where he opened a new studio in 2015.
