Salvatore Emblema’s TRANSPARENCY at BOSI Contemporary:
In collaboration with the archives, estate, and museum of Italian post-war artist Salvatore Emblema, BOSI Contemporary is proud to announce his first New York exhibition Transparency, which examines his career through 20 works and a large-scale installation. Having spent the majority of his life in Italy, Emblema remains relatively unknown to an American audience despite two extended stays in New York City.
Growing up in Terzigno, a town on Mt. Vesuvius overlooking Pompeii, informed his basic artistic impulses. Always a purist with an interest in raw materials, Emblema concerned himself with nature, texture, shadow, and most importantly, light. His use of stretched sackcloth, or burlap, embodied all these interests and quickly became his canvas of choice.
On view until January 11 2014 at BOSI Contemporary.
