visit to Kazumasa

Visit to the studio of Kazumasa Mizokami,an artist who represents a fantastic nature made of imaginary flowers with bright colors. Kazumasa hails from Arita in Japan which is a famous location in that country because of the pottery processing. Kazumasa's family is a family of potters, but Kazumasa stopped at a stage before pottery using terracotta as a plastic material. Terracotta is baked and then painted. Compared to ceramics, terracotta is a warm material that makes you feel the soul and breath of mother earth. The very intense bright col...

Materiali diversi, collettiva (Different materials, groupe exhibition)

The Galleria d'Arte L'Incontro presents eleven leading artists from the Italian art scene, placing the attention on the diversity of the materials used. "Inerti" materials that take shape, life, acquire their own soul and personality in the hands of the great Masters, while conveying messages, sensations and emotions. So it is also interesting to read a work by the material of which it is composed, to think about the primary function of this material and the destination it has been given. They are very different materials but united by the c...

All crazys for Boetti and Griffa

It is precisely the case to say "All crazys for Boetti and Griffa". In fact, the latest Italian and international auctions have confirmed the continuous growth of the quotations of these two artists. For Boetti, the unstoppable race of tapestrie prices continues, papers prices are still suffering with mixed results since the "calendars" have reached incredible prices, above 50,000 euros. The reflection is that the papers are to be bought given the really low awards and in light of the continuous growth in the prices of tapestries. When the p...

new works

On our website we recently published three new works, one by Agostino Bonalumi, one by Roberto Crippa and another by Giorgio Griffa. They are three captivating works for their constructive solutions. Bonalumi's is a purple silk and the value of this solution, the coverage of the shaped paper with purple silk, is of great visual impact as silk enhances the protrusions, the"extroflexions",of the paper below accentuating the difference between the lights and shadows and also the shine of the silk generates glows that change color and position d...

Boetti at the National Gallery

The National Gallery in Washington announces that it has acquired a tapestry by Alighiero Boetti, an untitled of 1988 measuring 112.5x104 cm. Remember that Boetti tapestries are the most looked for by the market, for this reason their prices are constantly growing. Our gallery has been dealing with Boetti for a long time and we are usually able to propose several works at the same time. But lately Boetti's tapestries have become rarefied, there is only one left that you can view on our site at www.galleriaincontro.it/en/artisti-opere/alighie...

Visit to Mario Raciti

Visit to Mario Raciti to see his latest works. Curiosity arises from the fact that Raciti has opened a new pictorial cycle for a few months now, which he calls "Fonte".  Raciti called it this way because it brings back to the canvas a bundle of colored lines that starts from the top of the canvas and then descends and expands downwards thus giving the impression of a water source or rather a cascade of water. These are not sharp lines, but segments, very fluid brushstrokes that sometimes change into a patch of homogeneous color. What does th...

Orvieto Cathedral

Being in the area we took advantage of it to visit the Cathedral of Orvieto, one of the most important examples of Gothic art in Italy. The construction of the Cathedral of Orvieto began in 1290 and ended in 1591. The design and direction of the works were alternated between several architects, mainly Lorenzo Maitani and Arnolfo di Cambio. The front is rich in bas-reliefs and sculptures and made sumptuous by gilding. Inside there are frescoes by several artists, among which Beato Angelico and Luca Signorelli excel. The cathedral can be visit...
