There’s the kind of synthetic, pre-fabricated “beauty” you could find on Instagram, nowadays, and then there’s unmitigated, elevated beauty. Somehow, the practicing artist still has the upper hand on the relentless tide of hipsters and half-wits out there who try to claim “fine art” as their own. In that small oasis of time-honoured skill and dedicated craftsmanship, there is multidisciplinary artist Alessandro Roma. Born in Milan in 1977, he was educated at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milano), and pursued further studies during a 2009 residency at the Künstlerhäuser Worpswede (near Bremen in northern Germany). He divides his time between Milan and London, having presented solo exhibitions at galleries in Paris, London, Milan, Berlin and Roma. Ahead of an upcoming museum solo at the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce (Genova) this October, I managed to catch [up with] Roma during a brief weekend in London to describe his shift from canvas and textile-based work into ceramics.Read More
