Intro
The series of works in the Duo exhibition is not made for a quick look that, in fact, with a thread of irony, deceives and does not perceive their true essence, but their visual deception is an invitation to go beyond sensitive appearances.

Artist list

Fabio Peloso, Corrado de Meo
If at the definition of visual art we replace that of art of vision we will be closer to the idea of art practiced by Corrado De Meo and Fabio Peloso. Their works are not made for a quick look that, in fact, with a thread of irony, deceives and does not perceive their true essence, but their visual deception is an invitation to go beyond sensitive appearances. There is a play with form-color and with the form-matter, which become the absolute protagonists of the work and not the servile tool of representation of anything. that one is an artist who played the protagonist of the great Italian season of the neo-avantgardes of the early eighties and the other in the very same years began a very personal practice of jewelry art, are biographical details: the reality is that both in their work today give us a light experience. If we want to see how the toy is made in, the surprise will bring you a smile: those sharp, opaque forms of Peloso are not retro illuminated, those De Meo materials concretes are not heavy minerals ...

Se alla definizione arti visive sostituiamo quella di arti della visione saremo più vicini all'idea di arte praticata da Fabio Peloso e Corrado De Meo. Le loro opere non sono fatte per uno sguardo rapido, che anzi – con un filo di ironia – trae in inganno e non fa percepire la loro vera essenza: ma proprio i loro inganni visivi sono un invito ad andare oltre le apparenze sensibili. Il loro è un giocare con la forma-colore e con la forma-materia, che diventano protagoniste assolute  dell'opera e non servile strumento della rappresentazione di alcunché. Che uno sia un artista partito come protagonista della grande stagione italiana delle neoavanguardie dei primi anni Ottanta e l'altro negli stessi anni iniziasse una personalissima pratica dell'arte orafa sono dettagli biografici: la realtà è che entrambi nei loro lavori di oggi ci regalano un'esperienza di luce. E se poi come bambini vorremo vedere come è fatto il giocattolo dentro, la sorpresa ci porterà a un sorriso: quelle forme spigolose opalescenti di Peloso non sono retro illuminate, quelle concrezioni di materia di De Meo non sono pesanti minerali...
