Robert Hromec. Hands of Light

October 7th, 2014 9:00 AMtoNovember 2nd, 2014 7:00 PM

From October 7 to November 2, 2014 aluminum works by the Slovak artist will be housed in Lu.CCA Lounge.

The exhibition explores aluminum as an ideal palimpsest for experiments on light and color, but also as a means of reflection on the human figure and the relationship between the earthly world and the afterlife. The Slovak artist Robert Hromec will exhibit for the first time in Lucca with a solo exhibition titled “Hands of Light”, held in Lu.CCA Lounge from October 7 to November 2 (free admission), which will be inaugurated in his presence Friday, October 10 at 18.

In his works, playing with optical illusion, he frequently uses the symbol of the hand. Expression of the idea of activity, royal emblem, as an instrument of authority, power and dominion, the hand is also associated, in the culture of the Far East, with activities related to the spiritual welcoming and inner experience.

In the works of the artist from Bratislava you can see a sort of dance of the hands, tied to the movements and forms taken from the surface of his work, because of their relative position to the rest of the body.

Hands greeting, grabbing, indicating, clapping, reassuring, they teach, they tell, in an explosion of light, color and gesture of reflective elements. Those of Hromec are hands that glow, bringing light and knowledge, but only for those who can also indulge in something that has no direct meaning or is rational.
