Known for his luscious, abstract floral paintings combining the subtleties of classicism with the crackling energy of contemporary expressionism, Carmelo Blandino responds to our time with this new exhibition. Viewers are invited to take part in contemplation of our interconnected biosphere in
Carmelo Blandino: Convergence.
The garden-inspired exhibition of his large-scale format mixed media paintings features flora and fauna in their various stages of magnificent beauty and delicate vulnerability, reflecting the human connection to nature and communicating the urgency of our role in its preservation.
Blandino — whose interactive painting process and creative energy encourage the viewer to become part of his work — has produced a new series for this exhibition, drawing inspiration from the living collection at Naples Botanical Garden.
