The exhibition offers a critical look a 70 years long career dedicated to painting - from his early work appreciated by Carrà to his last (and never before presented) production.

FIORE
04.05.2017

Orticola opens a new project devoted to contemporary art with Velasco Vitali and his work "Fiore", a site-specific installation for the space in the heart of public gardens Indro Montanelli (in Milan). A steel wire woven bed replicates the cascading leaves of a Kashmir Cypress or a Weeping Willow: it invokes the perfection of inlay and chisel, reflects and refractes light by playing (like leaves) with the sun and the sun Angles of its rays.
