Fabrizio Biviano reworks the conventions of Dutch still life painting to explore the contemporary currency of objects as embodiments of memory and identity. Reflecting on his own experiences of lapsed time and loss, the artist grapples with the irreconcilable forces of transience and permanence, absence and presence, that shape human life.
Rendered with a brighter, warmer palette and looser brushstrokes than previous series, these paintings harness the immediacy of the present to celebrate the act and action of living. Each arrangement is amplified against tonally vacant backgrounds, soldering the viewer’s focus to the foreground; to the vibrancy of the here and now.
