Curators: Galleria Varsi Artist: Dulk Exhibition from April 17th to May 24th, 2015 C: When...
Galleria Varsi presents Dulk’s first solo show in Italy, Broken Thoughts, curators Marta Gargiulo and Massimo Scrocca.
For this exhibition the gallery has been transformed into a dense vegetation landscape, in which the artist integrates his latest production that derives from his own specific blend of nature, imagination and joy.
Dulk’s work takes shape through his approach to drawings. When holding a pencil the artist abandons the overstructures of adults, and allows himself to become overwhelmed by the spontaneity that inspires the imagination of a child. He is thus able to focus on an infinite range of details, fundamental to the representation of his subjects: nature and its animals.
Dulk creates landscapes that blend his research on traditional Flemish paintings with surrealistic art of imaginary tones. Since childhood he has cultivated a passion for nature, born when his father first showed him black and white photographic encyclopedias that immortalized thousands of animal species.
Since then the artist has never stopped drawing, always receiving inspiration from nature but creating fictional characters, which find their space in a natural and vigorous settings. This means of expression has characterized Dulk’s narratives from the beginning, in a path that has led him to become an illustrator in today’s international gallery circuit and on the walls of the cities he travels to.
