Gioele Amaro - Tv Monet - 2021

Gioele Amaro has approached the digital as an idea, a subject and as a way of being in the world, rather than as a technique in itself. Amaro's tight and carefully considered aesthetics are mixed with an experimental and playful impulse, that becomes a framework for a simultaneously chaotic, conceptual and experimental space filled with references, comments and paraphrases of art history and its motifs.

The premise of Gioele Amaro's work is that both digital and physical images are constantly changing and dependent on our gaze. This playful and constant transformation results in a space that juxtaposes a multitude of expressive narratives and outcomes.

As much as Amaro works with the abstract as part of an ephemeral visual state, he also works with the distortion of familiar motifs and icons. Several of Amaro's works paraphrase, or directly derive their "motifs", from works from art history or digital pop culture. These are processed until they are in a sensual place between abstraction and recognition. With this reinterpretation, Amaro's work speaks to a digital image-culture where filters, infinite layers of mediation, and rapid exchange and circulation are an inevitable condition and premise for our way of experiencing the visual world.

Gioele Amaro (IT), lives and works in Paris. He is a trained architect and has worked with the renowned architect Jean Nouvel. Gioele Amaro has participated in major international exhibitions at, among others, Almine Rech, Reinhard Hauff, Balice Hertling, Hight Art, Cuturi Gallery and Galerie Untilthen. Gioele Amaro's works can be found in a large number of private and public collections.
