ABOUT

Giuseppe Gonella (Motta di Livenza, 1984) lives and works in Berlin.
Giuseppe Gonella’s paintings explore the rituals, the dreams and fears typical of modern humans and they take the viewer through dystopia and mysterious landscapes with uncertain horizons, appearing as illusions. His paintings detach from the reality we see and they transform and mold memories in modern allegories. His research on the human condition digs deep between introspection and desire for freedom and it is in contrast with our society that nowadays, thanks to the mass media, creates icons that quickly fade away.
