Yvonneartecontemporanea presents three Italian artists: Iler Melioli, Tamara Repetto, and Cristina Treppo. An interesting relation of sign and object between neo-minimalism and Nature precision. Paintings on pvc, works on paper, installations in stainless steel and plexiglass, concrete and iron, olfactory elements and technology.
In Iler Melioli’s work, the relatively lack of distinction between painting and wall extension, results in a similar lack of distinction between two- and three-dimensions, and between surfaces and structures. It is impossible to consider living organisms as isolated, closed and independent from their living environment, and in the same way Melioli’s works are conceived as configurations that are open to the space, as nuclei conveying forces and energy of reciprocal and mutual coexistence. The sculpture Ondosauro Mediterraneo is made with shiny stainless steel and transparent plexiglass, two elements that dematerialize and open a relation with the space.
Tamara Repetto’s work talks about Nature. In the drawings on paper she focuses on peculiar geometric properties: Fractals. The term fractal in allusion to the Latin word fractus that means fragmented, irregular. Most probably nature is organizing itself according to fractal parameters because such a pattern increases surviving chances of itself by improving efficiency of the system. The installation Arboris is a nest to preserve forests, to protect tree roots and wood smell, to express the human intention to save the environment.
Cristina Treppo’s research is on the relation between works of art and space, preferring mimetic solutions. It seems as if the surface of the material absorbs the work of art, as if it were an archeological stratification. Her exhibitions are about inhabiting, absence/presence, the consequences of time, the connections of structures.
