In her first personal exhibition at Nuova Galleria Morone, Elizabeth Aro presents a set of artworks that emphasize her constant attention to the dexterity and the variety of materials used to create the works.
Brumas is the title of a large graphite drawing (240 cm x 240 cm x 160 cm, 2014/2018) in which the temperature of the fog and the uncertain light of the early morning appear, when the forest is suspended in moisture in a light without sun.
It is placed on the black wall and converses with Estudio de Nubes, 56 graphite drawings (cm 20 x cm 20, 2014/2018), where the sky’s movement between flashes of light and darkness acts as a counterpoint to the Brumas wood.
Everything helps to draw the real metaphorical mystery of air and nature.
At the center of the gallery, again, transparency and fragility come into play. Nevertheless, the material is different: red-wine velvet sewn into long ropes to form a large net, Red Net (2006/2013).
It is the net of daily experience, of affections, of contradictions but also the net of the universe which, with an extraordinary gravity, touches the ground.
In front of the parapet of the stairs, in three photographs from the Just Me series, 24 x 30 cm, 2016, the mastery and manual passion of Elizabeth Aro returns with the soft embroidery in gold wire that surrounds the faces of three women.
The exhibition, curated by Francesca Pasini, emphasizes the red wire that connects the drawings, embroideries and the installation in a kaleidoscopic variation of shapes and materials.
