Gianni Pellegrini Biography

In early '70, Gianni Pellegrini (b. 1953, Italy) started his aesthetic path with the first abstract-analytic experimentation, endorsing in 1975 the 'Astrazione Oggettiva' group. Pellegrini's paintings—who always worked through body of works—are originated by an accumulation of imperceptible layers of paint left decant on the surface. The absence of brush strokes brings the gaze to wonder on the surface getting progressively absorbed by looking for coordinates. Pellegrini's paintings merge the contradictory characteristics of physicality and immateriality: they are concrete and present but at the same time unfathomable and suspended. They create a tense structure of light-filled and an oscillating depth.
