Friday 21 june at 17.30-19 - Vernissage
The exhibition “the shapes of water”, edited by Lorenza Gamberini, show the work of Ruggero Gamberini (Canaro, Rovigo, 1933 – Milano, 2017), painter and sculptor.
The path of the exhibition starts from the Monument to the Resistance located in Piazza Matteotti in Lainate and created by the artist in 1986 and continues inside Villa Litta, where fifteen paintings and three sculptures are presented.
‘’My father's painting refers to an era of strong and vibrant emotions, on a personal, civil level and
towards the whole surrounding world, expressed with fullness of intent and means in color
and pictorial gesture. A river of feelings in which I grew up and that still accompanies me’’
‘’Gamberini's painting appears, from the first tests, as characterized by a strong expressionist charge.
I would say, still, that such an expressive choice does not arise in him from the search for a model, albeit congenial, but from a direct solicitation to extract from himself, from his own inner world, a figurative modality that corresponds to a deformed and chaotic external reality.’’(Mario Spinella)
‘’First of all Ruggero Gamberini is an artist who thinks. The finding is not at all natural as it would seem, given the very high number of sculptors who show too much confidence in their designs, trusting the inspiration and the stroke of genius of the last moment. When Gamberini, for example, was commissioned to build the monument of Casalpusterlengo to the Resistance, he not only wanted to know what the Resistance had been in this country, but who had been the protagonists and from which deep roots that quell exploded. love of freedom that had made them deploy in a mortal struggle.’’(Davide Lajolo)
