La Storia by Nicola Samori, oil on copper (?), 2009 - click to enlarge

Nicola Samori is one of those artists I have been meaning to post about for a long time now - ever since I discovered his stunning oeuvre via the lovely and ever informative Samantha Levin.

His work struck an immediate chord with me as it exemplifies a certain poetic and narrative deconstructive (in the truest meaning of the word) trend that I've witnessed with a bunch of other young artists.

Most remarkably of course the great Titus Kaphar, in a more aggressive manner Valerie Hegarty, and even - in a more satirical and playful sense - Seb Patane and Ruth Claxton. The list could beyond doubt go on, but my brain is very leaky.

Nicola Samori's works, however, are a lot darker and more nihilistic than any of his above contemporaries' and that's precisely why I find them particularly mesmerising.

He's currently exhibiting new works in the 13 group show at Christian Ehrentraut in Berlin.

Please note that the works featured here are from 2009 so you probably won't get to see the exact ones.

Details below.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm
    going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!
