Rosenfeld Porcini is proud to present L’Age Mur, a first UK solo exhibition of Italian artist Nicola Samori. The exhibition showcases new marble and wax sculptures as well as Samori’s latest series of paintings on canvas, copper, linen and wood. It also features small, mainly grey paintings, which appear to be taken from old documentary photographs. The images are not sharp as if buried in time and allow Samori to further develop his ideas concerning the passing of time and the texture of surface.
At its essence, the whole corpus of Nicola Samori's work is a profound meditation on time and the fragility of existence. The use of peeling paint takes us to heart of one of his fascinations: human skin and what lies beneath it.
