Renato Leotta - Linea, Punto.

Sprovieri presents Linea, Punto., Renato Leotta’s first exhibition at the gallery, in collaboration with Galleria Fonti, Naples.

Leotta’s artistic practice is closely connected to the observation of the land and sea sceneries of the Mediterranean. Cooperating with nature, Leotta mediates with the universal phenomena that make up a fragmented territory: the phases of the moon and tides, the volcanic rains, the bioluminescence of plankton, the waves, the microlith, combining through his works a minimalist vocabulary and poetry with ease.

The exhibition consists of a group of works made of fabric, “Orizzonti”, obtained by immersion into the sea and then left to dry naturally in the sun. The physical phenomenon of the crystallisation creates, through the line, a visual division on the fabrics, tracing an ideal horizon that tells the movement of the tides related to the phases of the moon and describes the theme of uncertainty and oscillations within the natural landscape.
