About the Exhibition:
Luca appears to our eyes with the charm and gentle curiosity of the child who seeks the “mystery” hidden from the world around him. What we see does not exist: only images sent to our senses by the conventions which bind us together. Everything around us has no basis outside of our minds: the houses, the streets, nature, people are all a virtual deception to give meaning to what we do. Luca does not give us answers rather he reveals questions, he does not scare us nor calm us, he simply invites us to have time to dwell in solitude to look for what’s under the surface.

Artist Bio:
Luca di Castri was born in Florence in 1972. He began studying art and graphic design at the Art Institute of Florence. He then moved to Bologna where he studied theater, and worked not only as a set and costume designer, but also as an actor. It was not until the mid- nineties that he began showing his work in solo and group exhibitions. His work was greatly loved by critics and the public, which offered him the opportunity to win he several awards. Most of di Castri’s exhibitions have taken place in Florence, though he has also shown his work throughout Italy in cities like Milan, Rome, Arezzo, Lucca, and Siena. His works have even been displayed in other countries around Europe in locations such as Strasbourg, France and Zyrardow, Poland. Currently di Castri has works of art in many public and private collections all over the world.
