Elvio Chiricozzi

Elvio Chiricozzi

Elvio Chiricozzi, a painter born in Viterbo in 1965, started exhibiting at a very early age while still a student at the Academy of Fine Arts. The idea behind his work is the strong, continuous, almost automatic link with poetry. Chiricozzi loves the poetic text and makes it a fundamental part of his art, a source of inspiration in an incessant dialogue. This dialogue emerges from the painted canvas and extends into physical places. The pictorial work takes on a third dimension, the painting is so enveloping that it creates volumes that invade the space, take possession of it, to the point of involving the environment and the viewer himself. His latest exhibition, entitled "Ciò che non muta" ("What does not change") from a verse by Mariangela Gualtieri, a contemporary poetess, is an intense tale of this universe of images and sensations, of that moment in which an emotion is felt, the infinite wonder, the spectacle of life, the borderline where extremes meet. A journey into this world of images as delicate and light as bird's wings, yet as strong and powerful as a sudden storm.
