  • About the work

Medium: acrylic, textile and photo on canvas. Manuel Felisi moves confidently in the different fields of making art, from painting, to photography till installation tecniques, always telling the same theme, the dimension of Time. “The Time” could be described as “the Theme”, because everyone of us is involved; our being in there, is: Time that changes things through its passage, preserves them or either makes them dissolve. There are different ways to tell this story; Felisi does it in a “kind” way, without being trapped in nostalgia, and, on the contrary, covering the dimesion of time, with poetic and emotional inspiration. His works are made of several materic layers, always joined chasing the same scientific order, like following a ritual, from painting to print, yet without being mechanical, but always succeded with extreme involvement. Time is the main character from many points of view: time like a necessary measure to create the work itself. The short-lived time, almost frozen, of the photographic instant, the digitally-processed shot, therefore printed with the absence of white on a previously prepared canvas, is like a seal capable of holding inside the work all the “Times” which can possibly be described. A photograph that ceases to be a simple shot of people, places, objects becomes a collective memory. Besides “Time” as ideal and universal category, which rules life, beats the rithm and changes things and people.

About the Artists

1976 , Italy

Manuel Felisi was born in 1976 in Milan, where he lives and works. He attended the Art School and Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. His artistic practice moves between different areas using painting, photography, and collage to create the installations through which he translates and tells time. He uses photography to express a time that immobilizes and measures places, objects, people, and feelings; the instant of depiction is no longer a mere mechanical operation but it becomes the symbol that binds the different types of time described in the work. His works are composed of layers of different materials that always follow the same scientific order, like a ritual – from painting to print – never to be confused with the mechanical nature and repetitiveness as it is always the result of the involvement and feelings that drive the artistic doing of Felisi. Main exhibitions: Biografie (Spazio Isola, Milan, 2002); Nato a Milano Lambrate curated by Alberto Mattia Martini (Fabbrica Eos, Milan, 2008); Flowers curated by Ivan Quaroni (Fabbrica Eos, Milan, 2010); Museo Verticale (permanent exhibition at Palazzo Regione Lombardia, Milan, 2010); Piano City Event (installation Sinfonia with piano played by Vinicio Capossela in concert at Rotonda Della Besana in Milan, 2012); Menoventi curated by Fortunato D’Amico and Maria Flora Giubilei (GAM, Genoa Nervi, 2013); Griglie curated by Marco di Capua (Russo Gallery, Rome, 2014); Di-Vento (Cavaciuti Gallery, Milan, 2015); Su-Acqua curated by Markus Graf ( Russo Art Gallery, Istanbul, 2015); Tempo Immobile curated by Alberto Mattia Martini (Fabbrica Eos, Milan, 2017).
