Ancona, Italy, 1969
The work of Rocco Dubbini has always been characterized by an extraordinary evocative capacity in the most concise synthesis. Few elements, taken from the everyday of human life, enter into a relationship like a game of mirrors, starting to speak to the viewer of absolutely universal themes. A system of spontaneous associations that branch out from one single element to the others, a circular wave that involves every single work opening its meaning.
A synthesis of the way of understanding the work and the function of an artist who uses all visual tools (drawing, photography, installations, video) to evoke and communicate making a thought visible.
The works presented in Drawing Room Madrid all concern the figure of Pier Paolo Pasolini, the poet, director, intellectual killed in mysterious circumstances in 1975. Dubbini produced a personal exhibition for Shazar Gallery entitled “Mantra” in 2013.
