Forewords – The truth hurts. Do you really want to know it
The theme of this exhibition “Absolute Truth” is from the Japanese phrase “真っ赤な嘘”. Coincidentally, there is also a phrase with similar meaning in Korean. The final version of the title is a literal translation, which means ‘absolute truth’ is a coined phrase in Chinese.
Salvo is an artist with philosophical temperament and wisdom. Usually, he is he is reserved in conversation, however, when it come to the discussion of art and philosophy, he becomes enthusiastically talkative. What a genuine artist he is!
As a native of Sicilia, Salvo has a natural sensitivity for colors. There are many stories of his own beneath his charming color schemes. All his art works are his diaries.
Due to the fact that the sun rises in the East, Salvo decided to live in China seven years ago. From Shanghai, Hunan to Jingdezhen, every place he visited gave him new inspirations and gradually made his works full of oriental charm. As the mysterious veil slowly uncovers, the impressions of China in the eye of the Italian painter can be sensed in his works.
As the exhibition time is approaching Christmas season, we suggested the artist to create a Christmas tree at the gallery exhibition hall. We are looking forward to this surprise – an unique Christmas tree the artist shall make for this exhibition.
The truth is objective but also cruel. Therefore, it explains why sometimes we tell white lies. Are you sure you want to know the “ABSOLUTE (RED) TRUTH”?
