  • Franco Viola

    Working as an engineer and a painter, Viola had the privilege of experiencing the debated yet very prolific encounter between art and science. During his artistic career he has studied and experimented with color and its laws thoroughly in order to grasp the notion of the sublime, qualifying his pictorial idiom with lines rich in intensity and completeness. From his very first watercolors and, later on, in his oil paintings, Franco Viola has produced landscapes by combining reality and the inner world, seeking to transfer the emotion and the sublime of the uncontaminated reality. A continuous process which accompanies thoughts on the nature of painting in the age of Modernism and on its relationship with place, time and the ever-changing social and human conditions. It is a rethink on Nature, in the context of a cognitive and emotional flux.
