Waddington Galleries is pleased to present Black And White, an exhibition of recent work, twelve paintings and four sculptures by the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino.
The core of the exhibition is the large scale canvases, painted predominantly in black and white, where Paladino uses his traditional imagery of fragmented heads, hands and arms, suggested helmets, shoes and masks, and sets them into an abstract backdrop. Paladino has developed this idiosyncratic visual language from a range of influences, particularly Etruscan and Ancient Roman art, with reference to early abstract expressionism in painting style. The result is an effect of melded modernity and archaism, immediacy and distant past, modern mark-making alongside archaeological iconography.
