Kornfeld Galerie Berlin and Galerie Anita Beckers (Frankfurt / Main) together with the Guardini Foundation proudly present the exhibition “The Drunken Boat” by italian-american multi-media artist Federico Solmi at the Guardini Gallery.
In Solmi’s work, painting and video art interact in surprising media harmony. Without the struggle about genres, and the competition between classical art techniques and digital technology, space emerges for the existing potential to unfold. 3-D- and video game technologies interact hand in hand with expressionist painting and reveal remarkable visions of the world that burn themselves into the beholders’ subconscious.
