(Merano (Bolzano, Italy) 1962 -)
BiographyPaolo Quaresima, was born in 1962 in Merano (Bolzano), where he still lives and works.
He graduated in 1988 at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice and from then on he devoted himself entirely to painting.
At the heart of pictorial research of Quaresima there is the Man: women and men portrayed in environments absolutely essential for to focus the figure,the character, the strength. Then, from a few year, Quaresima paint also objects. Object and Objects, rather than still lifes, because with these paintings, our gaze widens to the usual tools of life, at the tools of every days. Again and always the Man, told by his things, as if he is there, just a step to the side, out of the picture.
He collaborates with the White Room since 2012.
