Italy: Domenico Bianchi exhibition at Lorcan O’Neill Gallery in Rome

Rome: Bianchi is known for the recurrent use of biomorphic signs in his works, and for the use of materials that interact with light, such as precious metals, fibreglass and polished wood.

Using an ancient Roman technique, rediscovered in the 1950s by Jasper Johns, Bianchi manipulates wax as if it were paint.

Over the course of his 40-year career, the Rome-based artist collaborated with some of the most important figures of the Arte Povera movement, including Jannis Kounellis, Mario and Marisa Merz, and Michelangelo Pistoletto.
