Opening from April 20th to June 9th at Ronchini Gallery London, the new exhibition of Sergio Fermariello is inspired by the archetypal symbols and shapes from the past,with a particular emphasis on mythology and antiquity. This first show of the artist in the UK includes new and existing key works from Fermariello and has been curated by ARTNESIA.
The work of Fermariello began with the symbol of a warrior, an image that holds particular significance to him as a sign of strength. These armed figures have been synthesised and repeated throughout his canvases with an obsessive rhythm for over 20 years. The icons of archers and soldiers that Fermariello use on his work are borrowed from the Etruscans and the Garamantes ::::
