Giorgio Tentolini was born in Casalmaggiore (Cremona) in 1978, he trained in Graphic Arts at the Toschi Art Institute in Parma, to graduate in design and communication at the University of Reggio Emilia. After stages with artists such as Marco Nereo Rotelli, he began a very personal research with installations on a photographic basis, for which he immediately obtained significant recognition. His paintings are influenced by his work as a photographer when he used to break down images in chiaroscuro levels.
Each of his works is born from a precise investigation of Time as memory and identity, in a careful and slow reconstruction that takes place with the study of light and the engraving of layers of different materials, fabrics, papers, PVC. Tulle and adhesive tape are the current medium of his search for the meditative lightness that its layers give back to the image, a metaphor for places and memories, dreams and visions. A pictorial work living the reality of sculpture.
Through the stratification of memories and experiences, the image resurfaces in this intangible substance, made possible only by losing oneself in a vision that does not follow the cognitive parameters of perception, raising doubts and questions about the true consistency of human being and the impossibility of fully grasping the essence of reality.
Tentolini exhibited in London, Berlin, Amsterdam, in the Principality of Monaco, at the Royal Palace of Milan, the MAR.
