| INVERNI |
Inverni was born in 1968, in Florence. He lives and works in Poggio a Caiano in Tuscany. Son of a painter and teacher at the Florence Art High School, Inverni developed a deep passion for painting. However, he didn’t feel a particular interest in painting until later. After the Polytechnic School in Prato, he worked as a texture designer for the “Faro Disegni” firm, in Rome, until 1991. When his father dies prematurely, it triggered Inverni to start painting. The whole first period of Inverni’s works focuses around the themes of melancholy and memory.
In 1995, thanks to the Italian American painter Benini he managed to go to the U.S.A.. There, he focused on works under commission for art collectors in Hot Springs (Arkansas). He was also in a large number of exhibitions. His experience in America went on, working at the Benini Foundation in Johnson City (Texas). In 2004 his artistic experimentation ranged from landscapes and still lives to the newly experimented hyperrealism. Melancholy became a central theme. The aim of his works is to reawaken every viewer’s emotion. Another central theme is the paper, a very common material to us, represented as worn-out, abandoned, decayed and hardened by time, as a symbol of the human being, abandoning himself adrift.
He’s part of a selection of a one year “itinerant” public collective exhibition, called “50 Pittori 50 Cantanti” (50 Painters 50 Singers), in 2010, from the Palagio di parte Guelfa Palace in Florence and to the Cardi Palace in Cortona (Arezzo). In the same years he’s chosen, together with other Italian artists, to participate at the 54th Biennale of Venice. Inverni’s works made their way to important public and private collections and now he is in Marciano’s galleries.
