PAOLO QUARESIMA

Merano, 1962

  • CV

Incomparable cantor of the little details of everyday life, Paolo Quaresima seizes daily objects and materials with the ability of a magician. Shiny metal, chipped porcelain, glimmering glares upon a stretch of water, rough grain of a wallpaper leap out the canvas more real than reality itself, awakening unknown perceptions. Banned from the framing, man becomes present absence and undisputed protagonist described through the trace of his daily gestures.

Born in Merano in 1962. After high school, he graduated in 1988 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, since then exclusively focusing upon painting. For the last few years he has chosen objects as his subjects. Real objects, rather than still lives, to spread his glance upon working and daily tools. Since 1987 he realized many solo and group exhibitions through Italy and Europe. Since 2008 he was invited to every edition of ArteFiera in Bologna. He lives and works in Merano.
