CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
My Encounter with Momoi
April 20 – June 3, 2018
Reception: Friday, April 20th from 6-9PM
Figureworks is pleased to present Fulvia Zambon’s latest series of paintings in her second solo exhibition with Figureworks.
Since Fulvia’s last exhibition, she has been developing a striking series of oil paintings that highlight figures with nature. Some appear more direct with an elderly man feeding seagulls on a beach or a young woman playfully focused on her beloved cat. Other paintings are reminiscent of earlier works with undercurrents of mystery surrounding the subject, such as an inquisitive child in a baby carriage (a frequently used object) reaching out to intent cats emerging from a foreboding landscape. Each exquisitely painted work draws the viewer into an intimate place, whether peacefully or uneasily.
Fulvia attended the Accademia Albertina in Turin, the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, (studied with Lydia Silvestri) and advanced training at the Art Students League in New York City (studied portrait painting with Ronald Sherr). Fulvia has exhibited extensively including La Regola del Volto, Scoletta della Bragora, Campo Bandiera e Moro, Venezia, Italy, Paolo Tonin Gallery in Turin -TAG (opening of 18 galleries in conjunction with the Winter Olympic Games), a solo show at Headquarter, Hollywood, CA, and a celebrated group show at Museum of Permanente, Milan Italy, Premio Arte in 2004. Her work is in many private and public collections.
