Stefano Arienti. Fiori

opening March 26, until May 21, 2019

Chiostri di Sant’Eustorgio, Piazza Sant’Eustorgio 3, Milano – IT

The exhibition begins with a series of flowers painted on paper lead the visitor to reflect on the theme of the necropolis and the practice of the cult of the dead, and continues in the basilica of St. Eustorgio; here we can see references to popular decoration, such as carpets dyed black or red. Reinterpretations of works of art such as the “Sunflowers” and “Irises” by Van Gogh, whose backgrounds, covered with gold and silver sheets, recall the continuity between still life painting and icons.
