For his first solo exhibition in the Czech Republic, Marco Tirelli has chosen to present two important aspects of his most recent work – drawings, and interventions consisting of murals and objects. 120 drawings covering three walls of the gallery evoke a private journal of poetic images from memory which reveal the artist’s visions and inspirations. The second part of the gallery will be “occupied” by murals – paintings in which the homogeneous use of black paint, enclosed in a perfect circle, focuses the spectator’s attention on the object placed at their center. In these works as in many of his paintings, Marco Tirelli explores questions of three-dimensionality and the limits of our perception and imagination.
