D’Anselmi’s exploration of the ongoing tension between humanity and the natural world. The artist’s large-scale paintings depict statuesque figures that inhabit lush, dreamlike worlds. Evoking the vitality of Fauvism, their skin is illuminated by vivid hues of orange, turquoise, and lavender, complemented by the fruit trees and overgrown landscapes that surround them. The majority of the inhabitants of the artist’s painterly universe exist in solitude, immersed in their own private realities. D’Anselmi is therefore constantly testing the boundary between what is real and what is not; between the way things are supposed to be and what he, as an artist, can get away with. By fabricating a world that does not abide by the rules of reality, D’Anselmi is able to access a childlike sense of wonder. The artist’s latest body of work captures just how vast and full of possibilities the world feels when we begin to discover it for the first time.
