Saturday 4 April 2017, the Click Cultural Artistic presents Ivan Sghirinzetti, young artist from Varese, these are his words:

"An adventure that began for fun by leafing through the catalogs of the greats of the informal, such as Burri, especially the first and most profound influence. Interior poetics that chase hidden and difficult to reach places, brush strokes, spatula strokes and hands become a language to make them The color is linked to distant memories and emotions explode on the canvases between impervious and unpredictable material reliefs. Everything is released and something grabs us, makes us shipwrecked unable to escape from those atmospheres more real than ever, because reality is abstract and the world is mental representation, and art is the key to its interpretation. Other influences come to me from Van Gogh and Bacon. The use of color to communicate in the former, the explicit passion of the latter that senses the world in its real expression. Space and time return to the mind because it is the mind itself that creates them and so here I am in an attempt to make them visible on the faces and in the representations. spatial ions that become "Landscapes of the soul" where the horizon goes beyond the limit of the mind. Each image is reworked and a filtered but still truer reality is re-proposed on the canvas because it has a profound story within itself because if the world is representation then reality is created by man through his own imagination "

1st edition collective exhibition

"20 x 20 = 400 emotions"

painting - photography - digital art ....

Opening Saturday 10 June 2017

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

Cormano - Saturday 10 June at the Click Art cultural center in via Dall'Occo 1, starting at 5.30 pm, the group exhibition with the name 20x20 = 400 emotions will be inaugurated

After the success achieved in Villa Bagatti Valsecchi with the exhibition "The sentiment and the reason", the Psico Avanguarida movement returns to make people talk about itself.

In fact, on Saturday 10 June, starting at 5.30 pm, the Click Art cultural center in Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, headquarters of the movement created by Luigi Profeta, will inaugurate the collective 20x20 = 400 emotions which will remain open every day until 22 of the same month.

This is the name chosen by Prophet, a simple title, but which immediately makes the intentions clear.

Many, to date, the artists who have joined, including several members of the movement.

The works on display will all be 20x20 cm and will examine photography, painting and digital art.

The intentions were to take up the idea behind the Psico Muro, made up of 20x20 pieces. Given the success it has achieved, I therefore decided to emulate it. Not so much for a concept as an end in itself, but because, given the expressive technical difficulties in creating small-sized works, I wanted to force every artist, myself included, to think more about their work and the specific emotions they want to convey. It is therefore an expressive challenge, that of giving strength and balance to small canvases. I'm curious to see what the results can be and what the public response will be.

I did a multiplication: 20x20 is 400, which virtually becomes 400 cm of emotions, which the viewer can observe.

There are many emotions, each artist will bring their own specific emotions into play. Love and hate, joy or bitterness. Different emotions, which at least for once, can coexist together smoothly and dichotomies.

"ANIMALESQUE"

Inauguration of a personal painting exhibition

"Animalesque"

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

Saturday 24 June 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Artistic Center inaugurates the personal exhibition of Camelia Rostom, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings of the 1600s.

Free admission

Camelia Rostom, Lebanese artist born in Beirut and graduated in "art education" at the Lebanese University, inaugurates her personal titled "Animalesque".
The exhibition, which can be visited from 24 June to 6 July, will be open to the public from Monday to Saturday from 9.30 to 12.00 and from 15.00 to 19.30. While on Sunday from 10.00 to 12.30.
Animalesque, this is the title chosen by the artist, sincere, in all its inspiration, an ethical and profoundly current message: love for animals and the need / need to defend them.
The exhibition - says the artist - was inspired by this inclined feeling of love for animals.
The "arabesque" and geometric style, with which the canvases are composed, helps to create a sort of illusion, almost a pOp art which, thanks to the targeted choice of black and white, emphasizes the three-dimensionality of the subject.

When art becomes didactic, it deserves an extra opportunity, that of being seen, observed and discussed. Thus, Camelia Rostom, workhorse of the cultural center, deserves that her "animalesque" reach people's hearts, hoping, who knows, to make them reflect and mature.

"MORPHOLOGY" back to the origins

Inauguration of a personal painting exhibition

"Morphology" back to the origins

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

On Saturday 30 September 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Artistic Center inaugurates the personal exhibition of Enzo Malazzi, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings from the 1600s.

Free admission

On Saturday 30 September 2017 at 5.30 pm the solo exhibition by Enzo Malazzi "Morphology: back to the origins" will be inaugurated, at the Click Art gallery, in via Dall'Occo 1 in the historic center of Cormano (MI). Milanese artist, since he was a boy, he was fascinated by the world of art, Enzo Malazzi attended the Higher Art Institute of the Castello Sforzesco. A pupil of the masters Timoncini, Reggiani and Grigioni, he obtained his art diploma in the mid-1980s.

Pencil, ink and Indian ink are his first working tools, which lead him to perform abstract compositions in order to satisfy an interior search, which cannot be represented in a figurative way. However, it is hyperrealism that leaves indelible traces in the heart of the Milanese artist.

Influenced by great artists such as Arnaldo Pomodoro, Francis Bacon, Vespignani and Scanavino, Malazzi tries to express (and, in my opinion he succeeds very well) all the discomfort, suffering, and elusiveness that our society, in its daily life, expresses and offers us.

The artist often makes use of digital graphics in his works. Not infrequently, however, he alternates this technique, with the use of pen and ink in search of himself. It is no coincidence that his solo show is entitled "Morphology: back to the origins", precisely because Enzo Malazzi feels the constant need to test himself, not with society, not with the viewer, but with himself, and it is precisely from this research his works, which appear to us as projects of who knows what futuristic machinery, as drawings of buildings that suddenly come alive with a life of their own, like a projection of his thoughts, in search of a world he dreamed of, where the order, cleanliness, precision play with his almost unsettling fantasy in a world he created, a world that you seem to be able to grasp. This artist deserves to be known and appreciated by everyone, and we can do this on Saturday 30 September 2017, at the inauguration of his personal

double solo exhibition by Raffaele De Francesco and Francesco Peri "JOINT ALCHEMY - paths between art and biochemistry"

Inauguration of the painting exhibition

"Joint alchemies - paths between art and biochemistry"

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

Saturday 21 October 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Art Center inaugurates the double solo exhibition of Raffaele De Francesco and Francesco Peri, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings of the 1600s.

Free admission

Saturday 21 October 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Artistic Center, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings of the 1600s, inaugurates the double solo exhibition of Raffaele De Francesco and Francesco Peri . Raffaele De Francesco works and paints in Milan, where as his main profession he deals with scientific research in the biomedical field. Always passionate about art and painting, he began his activity as a painter in 2008 dedicating himself entirely to informal painting. Painting thus represents for Raffaele De Francesco a means of knowledge of reality complementary to the scientific one: on the one hand scientific research, with its rational and objective approach, on the other painting, as an instinctive and introspective instrument of knowledge. Francesco Peri, lives and works in Milan, where he is full professor of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry in the Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences of the Milano-Bicocca University. He found in painting and scientific research two complementary means through which he expresses himself and studies reality. He is fascinated by the relationship between Science and Art, he has organized international events on this theme. His works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, he has a series of artistic collaborations in Italy and abroad.

It is always difficult to talk about Art, or worse still to write about Art, whatever it is, the words that at the time of pronouncing them meant something, once said they suddenly empty, become conceptual, often absurd, almost always useless. Looking at the works of these two artists, one cannot remain exempt from thinking that they are two scientific researchers, and looking at their works, I imagine myself looking at a world through the microscope, I cannot separate the two, the charm of these works , pushes me to “see them” with a rational eye on the one hand, while on the other, I imagine fantastic and unknown worlds that have yet to be “discovered”. These two artists, in painting, find a method of knowledge and investigation of reality, sometimes complementary to the scientific one, sometimes synergistic.

By Raffaele De Francesco, Virgilio Patarini writes: After having long experimented with different techniques and approaches in the field of Informal and Action Painting, starting from 2014 Raffaele De Francesco begins to venture into new and less known territories, even without completely deny its origins, and indeed, in some cases, treasuring the techniques acquired, but using them for different purposes. (...) We go even further along this direction with the very latest "new experiments", in which different techniques, materials and sources of inspiration find formal synthesis: writings, rough jute canvas, corrugated cardboard cut to simulate waves, perhaps hills of a stylized landscape appear: all elements that are added to the usual circles and rectangles and squares in relief, colored in hues flat on concrete floors. There is an evident search for harmony on the low tones of grays and browns in the chromatic range, and on the juxtaposition of geometrically aligned elements. What one comes to think of, looking at one of these small paintings is not a landscape or an urban glimpse, but rather a very tidy construction site or the warehouse of a freight forwarder: the work of art then becomes (also) a metaphor for something to be build, or a package to ship. A home or a trip. Or both together. "

Virgilio Patarini (From "Cross Over", Ed Giorgio Mondadori, 2017)

Di Francesco Peri, Davide Canadelli, tells us: There is a borderland, which we all meet in the course of life, but we do not always realize it. It is a land where the experiences, colors, flavors, sensations of existence come muffled and transfigured. It is a land of synchronic experience where time seems to have disappeared and all things merge into new forms. In this suspended place the outlines become blurred and the appearances uncertain, and the colors fade into the thousand facets of the experience. It is the borderland between childhood and adulthood, a land full of unspoken suggestions, of which we are often not even aware. But it exists within us, well hidden deep inside, who knows where. And if someone takes us by the hand, we can find it again and we can begin to discover the dizzying depth of existence, which we had long forgotten about. Francesco Peri, who knows how much consciously or how much under the pressure of an unconscious inner impulse, he set out on a journey. Walking along obsolete paths, he has rediscovered that the fog flickers with unexpected colors, that the light that enters from a window can be deeply moving, that a southern night is filled with ancestral nostalgia.

And that it is enough to look at a rooftop in the evening to see the secret links between things. Right on the edge of childhood, on the uncertain border between reality and fantasy, where a school of multicolored fish seems to come out of a book. Who knows how they float in midair ... if we think about it, however, it is not at all strange.

These artists are good, and they deserve to be known and appreciated by everyone, and we can do this on Saturday 21 October at 5.30 pm at the Click Art gallery in Cormano (MI)

"Soul burns - I collect my emotions"

Inauguration of a personal painting exhibition

"The soul burns - I collect my emotions"

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

On Saturday 18 November 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Artistic Center inaugurates the personal exhibition of Angela Ippolito, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings from the 1600s.

Free admission

On Saturday 18 November 2017 at 5.30 pm the personal exhibition of Angela Ippolito, "THE SOUL BURNS ... .. I collect my emotions" opens at the Click Art gallery in via Dall'Occo 1 in the historic center of Corman ( ME). Very chromatic personal signs, long tapered necks. The mind, which gently trespasses and dreamer comes out of the canvas.
Angela Ippolito's art is sweet melody, sensitivity to the pure state, which roaring expands an echo, which speaks of love and poignant suffering. Endowed with a multiform eclecticism, Angela Ippolito knows how to range from canvas to ceramics and again, from ceramics to material compositions made only with newspaper. Shapes and colors are only appearance, an illusory and deceptive feeling, that art knows how to tell the truth.

It is therefore not objective truth, but subjective truth, but it is always a question of it; of a truth, which is sad and lonely, truthful, borders on the human universe.

If after all, quoting the artist, "Art is the visual and emotional glue between human beings, confirming that we are such", Ippolito's works are able to communicate to us its deepest part, that of a woman who sensitively speaks of arduous relationship between human beings.

Intense colors, between background and subject, know how to create melodious outlines. Its features, decisive yet unreal, strongly nuanced and skilfully contrasted, give shape to imprecise realities; stylized silhouettes. Inaccurate yet expressive faces, combined with silhouettes suspended in time and space, with metaphysical detachment, speak to the heart and whisper to the mind. They are figures, those of the artist, who live on a figurative sublime. This is the style of Ippolito, a De Chirico pyramid that conceals within it the sensitive key through which to discover his most intimate secret: the portrait of a woman who roars loudly in art. This artist deserves to be known and appreciated by everyone, and we can do this on Saturday 18 November 2017, at the inauguration of her personal

Critical note by Massimo Chisari

Personal exhibition of Luigi Profeta

Signs like words

Inauguration of a personal painting exhibition

Signs like words

Hours: 17.30

Free admission

Saturday 2 December 2017 at 5.30 pm the Click Art Cultural Artistic Center inaugurates the personal exhibition of Luigi Profeta, in the historic center of Cormano, in via Dall'Occo 1, among courtyards, courtyards and buildings of the 1600s.

Free admission

On Saturday 2 December 2017 at 5.30 pm the personal exhibition of Luigi Profeta "Signs as words" opens at the Click Art gallery in via Dall'Occo 1 in the historic center of Cormano (MI), between courtyards and buildings from the 1600s.

The exhibition will be presented by dr. Paolo Avanzi

Works selected by the artist and unpublished works.

Luigi Profeta's rich production draws its lifeblood from a continuous tension between reason and instinct, as well as between orientation to the future and being rooted in an ancestral past.
This tension between elements clearly at the antipodes finds its balance and at the same time its raison d'etre in the continuous research effort that the artist pours into his works.

It is not a purely abstract research, but on the contrary of a continuous experimentation that starts from direct contact with matter. Matter understood both as a complex of materials that the artist forges with his own creativity, and as an interior experience which is then what, once analyzed and dissected, provides the deep motivations for a continuous getting back into the game.

Luigi Profeta possesses the truly rare ability to start from scratch every time in front of the canvas. It is as if the artist wanted to challenge himself each time to always go beyond, as if what he had achieved up to yesterday, as acquired, he perceived already exceeded. His experimentation is scientific and emotional at the same time.
This explains the balance between rationality of forms and chromatic instinct that Profeta manages to develop as a distinctive sign of his art. It is no coincidence that allusions to industrial machinery and technologies coexist in his works as well as references to unconscious or primitive symbolisms. This demonstrates the complexity of the cultural and psychological background of this artist who in no case spares himself by exposing his soul.

A commitment lived in an absolute sense, as total dedication to oneself, even in small-format works (which many great artists limit themselves to creating as a simple divertissement). Which suggests an evolutionary tension that will never end, towards levels of excellence that today we can only vaguely guess.
