Paolo Chiasera

Paolo Chiasera (*1978) addresses the complex relationship that unites young people with their (role) models and traditions. The figure of the hero plays just as important a role in his projects as does the process of destruction and new beginnings. The latter idea also contains the metaphor and familiar conflict artists face between art history bearing down on them and the need to set themselves apart from it in favor of the new. Chiasera employs this drama for his paintings and installations not only with intellectual reflection and conceptual detachment but repeatedly with relish and great emotionality, nor does he shy away from the pathos of grand gestures.
