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.
When considering Pasqua’s work it is hard to speak of realism or hyperrealism, figurative or abstract art. And it is just as hard to understand where the photographic dimension ends and where the pictorial one begins. The design process that precedes the execution phase and the expressive work, is long and complex, based on detailed iconographic research.
The same expressive languages are different in each piece, according to the principle that it is not the technique that shapes the expression, but the opposite. 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.
Presented by Le Dame Art Gallery at the Hotel Baglioni London, Domenico Pasqua' solo exhibition showcases 10 works inspired by a journey to India. Different themes and expressive techniques that, although starting from the same idea, are shaped by the artist’s intimate inspiration.
