Index presents Tommaso Pandolfi's drawings for the first time as a set of complex references and relationships and, through a collecting and sorting process, a range of traces were made observable in their ambiguous presence. The space where we immerse ourselves gives shape to the substance of a practice in constant motion and a restless flow of investigation of marks, forms, colors and gestures. From the continuity of series and explorations, where Pandolfi pursues and accumulates traces and visual harmonies, we enter an exhibition that interrupts the continuity and flow of an incessant daily exercise. The sudden flashes of marks and meaning are collected in a spatial index that outlines, through a geometric pattern, a world of signs from a place where everything is different but everything can be drawn.
Tommaso Pandolfi, was born in 1995 in Ancona, grew up in Perugia, and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino in New Art Technologies. He currently lives in Venice where he is attending the Master of Visual Arts program at the Iuav University of Venice. He is a visual artist and electronic music composer seeking in both practices how to capture and highlight the tension that originates and runs through them while standing on the borderline between expression and strict formality. In drawing, marked by a research around figurative canons, he elects iteration of techniques and forms as the expressive foundation of his body of works. Free scribbles and geometric constructions are the two poles he works within, making them alternate, combine and permeate.
