Giovanni Ozzola Biography

After spending several years in London, Ozzola came back to Italy in 2001, where he began to build a personal artistic path that led him, in 2001 to participate in the exhibition Happiness: A Survival Guide for Art and Life, curated by David Elliott and Pier Luigi Tazzi, at the Mori Art Museum of Tokyo.

Since then, his attention has been focused on light as a necessary material for vision. In the centre of his work, he puts the interest of three dimensional space and light, and has developed research on mental image and the essense of subjects.  The time of light and darkness is a thread that runs through all of Giovanni Ozzola’s work. For him, light signifies life and darkness is the container of human desires and fears – his beautiful still lifes creeping out of the shadows expresses this duality. The slate works depict epic voyages by explorers and is indicative of his interest in humanity’s most compelling questions about life and death and the irreversibility of time – translating them into a visual language rich with mythology and intersections.
