The Centro Luigi Di Sarro, in collaboration with CesMa and the Associazione Amici di Palazzo Buonaccorsi, presents a Luigi Teodosi solo exhibition , curated by Paola Ballesi. On show works that summarize more than sixty years of artistic career always accompanied by great curiosity, enthusiasm and indomitable creativity.
Teodosi’s works – showed in important solo and group exhibitions both in Italy and abroad and included in Italian and foreign collections- mark the stages of a coherent aesthetic path, poised between abstraction and figuration, reality and fiction, past and present.
Luigi Teodosi was born in 1935 in Jesi where he lives and works. After attending the basic schools in his city, he enrolled at the Art School of Rome and among his teachers Franco Gentilini, Renato Guttuso, Marino Mazzacurati, Libero de Libero, while Mario Mafai and Francesco Sapori are his teachers at the Free School of Nude of via Ripetta. From 1955 to 1962, he completed his education thanks to scholarships first at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and then in Zagreb, but also with long stays abroad. Among the many companions on the road with whom he shared the experience of the research we must remember the associations with Claudio Cintoli, Nino Ricci and Giuseppe Uncini. From the early 60s, reestablished in Jesi, he also entered the design world with his original creations and, as an experimenter without limits, continues his artistic activity to put in place the most disparate materials, but among all privileges the paper that has the the merit of retaining the memory and the secrets of the soul among its material textures, subsequently deployed in the large installations of the recent Gorilla series.
