Mors est ianua vitae of Tommaso Garavini

Tommaso Garavini's first solo show in Genova is a collection of the past 5 years of his artistic creation. It will include works on paper, on canvas, small plaster sculptures, rusted objects, and other found objects from different ages.

The atmosphere is that of an alchemist's laboratory. Through various different mediums, the pieces attempt to find that crucial moment in which a material is dissolved and allowed to transform itself into something new; an obscure and purifying instant where the conscious and unconscious meet. 
Garavini goes up against his own shadow, he kills it and digests it in order to give it a new life. It then  becomes a new element, one that continuously creates images in a quest for the perfect work.
