Luca Tommasi - Arte Contemporanea

Via Cola Montano 40

Milan, Italy 20159

 

Luca Tommasi is pleased to announce, Synesthesia, a solo exhibition by Ian Davenport to be held in the spaces of Via Cola Montano, 40, in Milan. At the heart of the exhibition will be an imposing wall painting measuring over 3 metres high and 5 metres wide. Created by the artist specially for the exhibition, it will be the first time Davenport has made a large site specific ‘Splat’ piece. In this work, the artist uses short jets of colour squirted against a wall, to form splinters and drips of paint that overlap and interplay, in complex arrangements of marks and colour. Included in the exhibition are also three coloured stripes works on paper, perhaps more typical of Davenport, in which poured paint is dripped down a surface creating harmonic colour combinations in parallel lines. These will be flanked by a wide selection of works on paper, representing the artists’ different approaches to painting and made over the last 15 years
