The exhibition will feature a number of recent works on paper, following his reflections and processes developed on the mark through his lengthy and ample research.
Paper has played a central role in Verna’s work as the very foundation for his substantial oeuvre. The show will focus on a series of recent pastels on paper of which the artist has said: “when I found myself immersed in the so called Analytical Painting of the ‘70s, I found that with pastels I managed to break free of the rigidity of that project, injecting into my work the vitality of a spontaneous gesture.”
Since Protected content , a period marked by great energy and inspiration in his painting (principally centred on the use of acrylic), Verna intensified his focus on pastels and oil pastels on paper.
A work of art painted on paper with oil pastels has the same exact meaning as that of a painted canvas.”
The geometry and imaginative freedom transform themselves on paper in a seemingly endless text. Abstraction and geometry come together fluidly in the expression of colour which continues to be a key element of Verna’s poetics in his works on paper. “The mark - colour and material together - not only inhabits space but, most importantly, it identifies it until it gives shape to a ‘figure’ which coincides with the final result.” In these works, drawings are free artistic expressions - it is the mark which speaks, it is once again experience and practice, it is the search for a composition, for a mental exercise and a free discourse on the language of painting and its forms: “still abstraction, but with the physicality of a language which accepts the challenge of experimentation.”
