David Fenoglio‘s works are inspired by the natural world and art history, but situated in a contemporary context.
Fenoglio is known for his restrained and contemplative still life compositions, based in the historical and technical study of painting. His approach references natural realism—depicting organic and mineral surfaces in their natural state. But his contemporary practice pushes the objects beyond their materiality with its hyperrealistic rendering. The uncanny ability to make simple spaces and objects, not only look, but feel natural is achieved through Fenoglio’s technical exploration and extensive study of oil painting. The results are elegant and ethereal.
Opening Event: Saturday 29 July, 4 – 6pm.
