"The colors of silence"
At Palazzo Senza Tempo an exhibition dedicated to the painter born in Fabbrica di Peccioli
In the halls of the Palazzo Senza Tempo it is possible to admire the exhibition “The colors of silence” dedicated to the Pecciolese painter Alessandro Ciulli.
The exhibition, curated by Alberto Mugnaini, is promoted and produced by the Peccioliper Foundation and by the Municipality of Peccioli, with the contribution of the Casa di Alessandro.
After having been the go-between and meeting point for so many talents from outside, the municipality of Peccioli is proud to be able to host the exhibition of an artist born and raised in its territory, whose work, practically unpublished and circulated only among local collectors, will constitute retrospectively a surprising new entry in the ranks of the most advanced research in Italian painting in the period from the end of the 1970s to the beginning of the second decade of our century.
Alessandro Ciulli, born on April 7, 1951, apart from some sporadic movements at a young age, has always lived in Fabbrica di Peccioli, until his death on April 1, 2012.
After attending the Art School of Cascina (PI), and enrolling in the Faculty of Letters of the University of Pisa, he definitively embarked on an artistic career by continuing his studies as an autodidact and working tirelessly and continuously until his death. leaving several hundreds of paintings and a few thousand sketches, drawings and sketches.
The exhibition is accompanied by a monographic study by Alberto Mugnaini, The colors of silence. Life and works of Alessandro Ciulli, in which we try to reconstruct the salient moments of Ciulli’s life and artistic career, and to highlight his absolute originality in forging a style that starts from a careful re-reading of the works of champions of Modernism such as Fernand Léger and Paul Klee to arrive at his own personal conception between the neo-primitive and the metaphysical, in a paradoxical but perfect chronological harmony with the most celebrated pictorial expressions of the Postmodern.
The exhibition will be open until 31 August 2023, every day from 9 to 20.
