This work belongs to the ”Aesthetica” series, which has been presented in many contemporary art events like the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.
The series ”Aesthetica” was recently presented in the solo exhibition at the Raffaella De Chirico Art Gallery in Turin and curated by the well-known Italian art curator Francesco Poli.
This work represents the intrinsic beauty of nature.
“The whites, the rarefaction, the luminous atmospheres, the misty treatment of the matter enclose the reflections that Bongiovanni continually leads to the meaning of the pictorial research that, while recalling analogous results of many contemporary authors on the analytical and conceptual paintings, draw with subtlety to the historical-artistic tradition, giving life to an abstraction that seems a fragment rethought of the ‘giver in abyss’ of medieval memory.”
