Vincenzo Marsiglia was born in Belvedere Marittimo (CS) in 1972. He studied art at Art Institute in Imperia then at Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, where he graduated in Painting. He began to exhibit during the Nineties with solo and group shows at private galleries, museums and public spaces in Italy and abroad. His works originate from a four pointed star that becomes his distinctiveness, a real “logo” of the artist. The composition of the works looks like an obsessive action and generates different elements in which this symbol joins to cloths, felt, spangles and pottery with a variations of rhythms and shapes. He refers, for a rigorous and balanced visions and ideas, to the masters of Abstraction and Minimalism.
In the last series of works the artist uses technological tools to combine the new solutions with his characteristic pictorial signs, own of previous research. These works display the new sense of contemporaneity linked to a new communication tools, it’s the same one used daily in our life and now began so familiar. His desire is not finalized to give precise solutions or concrete objects, but he wants give a mutable work that finds its completion in the interaction with the spectator.
The process of relation between work and spectator gets also a significant reduction of their distance and an unpredictable and endless changes.
