The exhibition area is on the third floor of the airport terminal in domestic flights departure area, after the departure formalities area.
Marco Grassi is a portraitist who creates his paintings in expressive, distinctive local colour and uses personal technique. At the heart of his work is pastose olive undercoat forming a tone. The foundation in covered with figures of bright neon colours. The artist highlights the contours with moving lines, while the images on the canvas are created with broad, long, colorful strokes applied with a spatula or streaks: a combination of these techniques creates lightness, dynamics and mobility with the dark drawing.
Four oil paintings on canvas were chosen for the exhibition:
- Do more of what makes you happy
- Japan is my love
- Lady sioux
