PRESENTATION OF NEW WORKS
We are pleased to present new works by Michele Lamassa in our Pop Up Summer Gallery in Locarno, Via Serafino Balestra 1a.
Michele Lamassa dedicates himself to a technique that is atypical within contemporary art: the fresco painting. The themes and motifs chosen by Lamassa show him to be a persistent observer of our time and recent history. His frescoes have a temporary character; using the strappo method – a method of restoration to remove wall paintings and prevent them from decay – the artist transfers his large-format frescoes to jute, whereby they develop their unique effect outside the original architectural context.
