An exhibition by Stefano Bosis
After a year travelling around Central America, nourishing himself with new experiences to share with his audience, Stefano Bosis shows a new perspective of his acclaimed series “Migrants”. His second exhibition “Viaggio II” will take place at Galerie Julia Dorsch Berlin, from September 5th until October 31st.
Remaining loyal to his main argument where represents himself as a painter, and his soul as an artist, with “The Trip” and its leading characters “The Migrants”, Bosis introduces in his series a new subject: “The Xenophobia”. This is personified by the figure of an alien, as a symbol that speaks for the unknown and the undiscovered that generates in humans a feeling of fear, and at the same time curiosity. Opening a discussion about the richness and diversity of life, the artist says in his own words: “A life of differences is a wealthy life that makes us understand better the world”.
Journey to Keplero (Migrants), Oil on canvas, 100x100cm
In this exhibition, not only the “Migrants” will be the protagonists. Viewers will discover other fascinating characters not seen before in Bosis’ paintings. Sometimes surrealistic, sometimes coming from other eras, but all of them sharing the same scenario together with the “Migrants”. In one canvas, getting to experience all times at once: the past, present and future.
With the first series of “Migrants” presented last year at Galerie Julia Dorsch, the public could appreciate these figures from a distance, as a vision without a context of space or time, traveling through the colors of the dessert and the blurred sky. This time the painter provides us a closer view, offering a new perspective of those travelers (Migrants), and then getting to understand “The Trip”, that constitutes life itself in a wider way.
In this second stage of the series, the painter depicts all of these characters in scenes and situations from the day-‐a-‐day. But other situations as well, not as common, will come up this time…
Once again, Bosis demands our attention and interest, capturing us in his paintings, seducing us with the colors. Always moving between realism and expressionism, letting us discover the world from another point of view, he speaks about life through stories which describes a journey which never ends.
