THE AGE OF INNOCENCE | CLAUDIA GIRAUDO

The title refers to Joshua Reynolds’ celebrated painting, exhibited at the Tate in London, forefather of the so-called “Fancy Picture”, a genre taken up by many great artists in the 18th century, to which it refers, even in the contemporary style, to the work of the Turin artist. Between Alice in Wonderland and Rilke and Picasso’s Acrobats, Claudia Giraudo undertakes refined pictorial research that is only apparently simple and immediate in its aesthetic references, from 20th century surrealism to pop, but that reveals, at a closer look, a series of references and suggestions that generate the restlessness of childhood on the edge of adolescence in the spectator.
