In Morocco they say “Mektoub” which means “it is written”.In Russia they say “Soudba” which means “destiny”.
That is exactly how Daniele Galliano his work landed in the V.Barkowski store.
By accident, mektoub, soudba.
Here below you can read more about his work and on our side we just would like to say that we are happy to host his work during the Marrakech Biennale.
Daniele Galliano, Italian painter, made of groups and crowds a privileged topic in his work.
Come in Cielo così in terra (As in heaven, so on earth), a polyptych of 14 gouache and oil paintings on paper, of which 6 are exposed at the Valerie Barkowski’s store in Marrakech, is a view over the crowds that populate and pass through the Jemaa el Fna square in Marrakech.
Jemaa el Fna is a magical place, a crossroads where the most diverse characters meet and an outstanding scenic space between reality and representation, whose the greatest treasure are people themselves – Jemma el Fna was proclaimed Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2001.
Galliano portrays the invisible paths of those passers who are then abstracted and reduced to aggregates of tiny sparkling objects or coloured particles. The view is aerial. Only from this height the multitude can be seized and the spectacle of humanity can be admired in its collective performance.
This work is part of a larger series, named Constellations, on which the artist has been working on in the last few years.
