"My intention is that of questioning the contamination between languages, the interaction between the passing of time and the action of atmospheric agents on artefacts. In my artworks, the materials are destructured and reconstructed in order to become a vehicle of a universal thought. Thus, they go from matter to abstraction, from the consciousness of memory to its transmission."
Davide D'ELia (Cava de' Tirreni, 1973)
He lives and works in Rome. Initially fond of painting in the Art Informel tradition, from the second half of the 2000s D’Elia has experimented with the interaction between atmospheric agents and artefacts as a case study of natural phenomena, examining the concepts of memory, time and the flow of time in space.
He participated in various solo and collective shows, in Italy, England, Lebanon, Greece and Slovenia. His artworks have been exhibited at MAXXI and are part of its permanent collection.
