Description

Valli Art Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming solo exhibition, presenting a selection of work from internationally regarded multi-media artist, Chiara Dynys. Titled Insidious Beauty, Italian master Dynys is best known for disorienting experiential pieces derived from personal experience and natural phenomena. This will be the artist’s first solo show in America and has been curated by Giorgio Verzotti. Insidious Beauty will open November 3 through December 31, 2017 with a reception for the artist Friday November 3, 6-9 pm at 1924 North Miami Avenue, Miami, Florida. Light refreshments will be served and the artist will be in attendance.


Exploring reality, physical versus metaphysical, humanity and the variables of perception, Dynys uses experience such as travels to witness such phenomena as aurora borealis, the Northern Lights.

Using materials including glass, resin, wax, marble, mirror, ceramics, metal castings, crystal, fabrics, video and photography, Dynys explores the liminal and metaphysical dimensions of reality, . Focusing on light and its relationship to vision and space, Dynys reflects upon the body and its reaction to an immediate environment, constant change whether minor or unrecognizable, she encourages her viewer to rediscover their own physicality and mortality, and be altered.


In So Near So Far, Golden Cage and Look Afar, reflective steel and bronze behind gold leaf bars obstruct the viewer's perspective and visibility, altering and refracting one’s body and the movement around the room, creating a disorienting and unrecognizable reflection.


“I often use the word passage to talk about my work. In fact, what is common to all my work is the sense of the crossing.”


Platonic Solids explores mysterious regularity and beauty. From precise mathematical disciplines developed by Greek philosopher Plato, Dynys points to links with the elements from earth, air to water. She is fascinated by the concept of the perceived perfection of the world and how our built, imperfect, concrete and tangible existence could coexist with the perfect objects within mathematics.
