Ciro Palumbo

Artist’s card

He was born in Zurich in 1965. His artistic journey takes its start from the poetics of the Metaphysical school of Giorgio de Chirico and Alberto Savinio, yet reinvents its foundations according to a completely original personal interpretation. In his research he proceeds through moments of contemplation and metaphysical silences, contrasted with nocturnal and intimately troubled expressions, where there is a distinct detachment from the silent stillness that inhabits the Pictor Optimus canvases. His works are thus presented as stages in which the objects present carry dreamlike symbolism.

Ciro Palumbo is not only a painter, but in fact a poet who reflects, acts and composes to combine metaphors about the elusiveness of time and the incommensurability of space, thus showing his ability to deepen his observation not so much of nature as of the imaginative impressions that come from memory. A curious researcher and scholar, he has also been working for some years on the theme of Myth, interpreting classical mythology in an exquisitely modern key, and giving it a deeply cultured and evocative reading. The artist thus manages to sublimate and contextualize ancient myths in spaces outside of time, demonstrating their contemporaneity.
