The exhibition is the first solo presentation of the Italian contemporary painter with the gallery. The exhibition features nuanced monochromatic oil painting works completed in 2023 from the artist’s signature oeuvre, ‘Soglia’, which he has been developing for over half a decade. Soglia, meaning ‘threshold’, represents the visual spaces that Cioffi has been exploring on his canvas by softening and scattering the colours that generate depths and paths, inviting viewers to inwardly step forward into the entrances.
The artist’s technique can be seen as a symbolic act of liberating colours from lines to light (returning them to what they are: atoms in the air, flowing and free) that moves and expands through his abstract series like activated monitor screens. In this manner, his works collectively recreate reality in a surrealistic way, allowing the viewers to reinterpret the world.
