A Tour de Force
January 20 - March 27€11
The MEAM presents “A Tour de Force”, the first individual exhibition of the American artist Shane Wolf (Cincinnati, 1976). The exhibition, which can be visited until March 27, brings together nearly 200 works that show his new monumental pieces, as well as his meticulous work process.
In this anthological exhibition, Shane has wanted to capture not only the final works but the entire process of artistic creation, from the initial abstract compositional research, the value compositions, the graphic and color script, the research of postures, and the final preparatory drawings. until reaching the finished work. The artist’s sample is a representation of the human body in all its realism and majesty.
In the exhibition of paintings by Shane Wolf, an almost baroque intention is manifested, induced by the size of the figures, but also a theatrical point of view inspired by the paintings of other times. In the elegant perspectives of a decorated ceiling, dome, or skillful foreshortening, the viewer is at the heart of Shane Wolf’s work. Because all these intentions, whether technical or dramatic, have the same purpose: to capture the attention of the Museum’s visitors. This is because the artist is not only making an aesthetic statement, but his work has such meaning that he completely reconnects with Renaissance thought by placing the human being at the heart of his paintings.
