Gianni Caravaggio Biography

The philosophical reflective process of Gianni Caravaggio (b. 1968, Italy) aims to investigate the foundation of art and its production through the realisation of works definable as devices for demiurgic acts, capable to build space within the space thanks to their evocative potential. His works allow the spectator to retrace the artist's creation act and generate new different scenarios by way of imagination. The viewer seems to be called to complete the artwork, guided by the suggestive power of essential shapes, colours and poetical titles that characterise Gianni Caravaggio's production. The materials of his works go beyond their usual attributes and generate unexpected relations with human thought, leading the spectator to amplify his preconceptions and venture above the objectivity, along the subjective experience.
