Figurative metaphysics. A retrospective on Carmelo Zotti and his “school”
Written by Carlotta Scarpa   
Carmelo Zotti’s painting draws from the elegant, fairytale nature of metaphysical art, which serves as a dreamike, surreal background to his iconography, inspired by Latin American and Indian art. His absolutely peculiar repertoire explores forms and compositions whose dense chromatic beauty is filled with narrative spirit.

 

One year after Zotti’s death, Venice will celebrate this great master with a retrospective at the Museo Correr. And since Zotti worked as a teacher at the Venice Academy from 1967 to 1990, a parallel exhibition dedicated to his disciples will take place at the Magazzini del Sale exhibition space, on the Zattere.
