ALMA ZEVI Venice presents Simone Carraro’s first solo exhibition Radica corta, albero brullo. Carraro (b. 1995) graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia and currently lives and works in Venice. Carraro’s idiosyncratic paintings and works on paper depict ancient bestiaries, botanical observations, scientific findings and more.
He reinterprets traditional Italian folkloric imagery, often focusing on the Veneto region and its distinctive lagoon. For this exhibition, the artist has made a new body of work which varies in size and techniques. Together, these paintings and drawings offer a kaleidoscopic vision of the natural elements and daily customs which make up the evolving Venetian world.
