Mario Nigro. The Structures of Existence

Dep Art Gallery, Via Comelico, 40, Milan

Commemorating the centenary of the birth of Mario Nigro (Pistoia 1917 - Livorno 1992), Dep Art gallery is hosting an important exhibition of paintings on canvas and works on paper curated by Federico Sardella.
Dep Art opened in 2006 with an exhibition of the works by Mario Nigro, thanks to the initiative on the part of Antonio Addamiano. Now in the new gallery seat found in Via Comelico 40 in Milan, confirming the interest and passion for this artist's work, after 11 years from this first exhibition the gallery is now presenting a series of works by the artist that belong to different periods of his career.
By concentrating its attention on the paintings in which Mario Nigro carried out a sort of codification of the structure, the exhibition proposes a 'dialogue' of a group of works of the 1950s and 1960s characterized by dense reticular aggregations that tend to saturate the surface which in this way becomes the tessera of something more expandable, placed in a dialogue with works of the 1970s in which the studies treating the line become concrete, the undisputed protagonist of Nigro's structures.
