1983 / 232 PAGES.
Language: Italian edition
Magnified by Domenico Gnoli’s visual talent, abstractions deduced from close observation spring to life on paper, accompanied by a text by Vittorio Sgarbi and a marvellous introduction by Italo Calvino.
A button with a raised rim marking its imperturbable circumference, a high-heeled shoe soaring nimbly from the ground, a shirt, the weave of fabrics, the mystery of an empty bed that still shows the impression of whoever slept (or spent a sleepless night) in it. Images that make up just one part of the visual universe of Domenico Gnoli, an artist who captured the rising taste for pop art, sifting it through a rather unconventional awareness.
