November 18, 2016 (New York City) – Greenpoint Gallery is pleased to announce Skin, a one day pop-up solo exhibition of works by Tomaso Albertini, on view at 390 McGuinness Blvd, Brooklyn, NY 11222 on November 18, 2016. Opening Reception: November 18, 2016 at 8 pm.
Italian figurative artist Tomaso Albertini will present a new series of works exploring the solids and voids of humanity's fate. Albertini combines paint, cardboard, and glue in a complex fusion of flat and bas-relief passages. His subjects appear trapped in their frames, reduced to segments and irregular surfaces. And yet they are revived from this state of semi-death by the imagination of the artist. In Skin, Albertini explores the negative human emotions hidden in secret worlds beneath the flesh.
The work of Albertini is viscerally dark, yet so universal that anyone can relate to it. By analyzing the epidemic lack of empathy in modern society, and the emotional superstructures that society uses to regulate individual interactions, he is able to reach his subject matter: authentic and unmediated feeling.
In cities such as New York, that are so demanding of their residents as to nearly digest and excrete them as affectless, hyperproductive androids, wearing a mask might be the only way to preserve one’s humanity. In light of these observations, Albertini tortures his canvases to retrieve his characters' hidden feelings in a cathartic, even shamanic, experiment that allows him to retrieve his own soul.

New York 2016
é il racconto di come le imperfezioni del singolo essere umano si riflettano sulla struttura sociale contemporanea.
Osservare contraddizioni e paradossi quotidiani, muovere costantemente un intero sistema basato su regole imperfette. L'imperfetto diventa quindi strumento di unicità e specchio di un anima ancora da scoprire.
Questo rende l'uomo l'animale più imperfetto conosciuto, in costante contrasto con l'ambiente circostante ma soprattutto con se stesso.
