Alessandro Twombly


Figures of Eros
November 14, 2008 - January 3, 2009

Fred Torres Collaborations is proud to present Figures of Eros, an exhibition of new paintings, sculptures and works on paper by artist Alessandro Twombly. The exhibition will celebrate the opening of Fred Torres Collaborations exhibition space located at 527 West 29th Street, in Chelsea. Figures of Eros will be Mr. Twombly's seventh exhibition in New York City.

Eros is the Greek word for passionate love, combined with sensual desire and longing. In Figures of Eros, Twombly creates a dynamic surface of anthropomorphic figures that take inspiration from the erotic engagement between nature and the mind as an evolutional series. With profound exploration of traditional mediums and openness to larger cosmic associations, Twombly creates through his paintings and sculptures a paradigmatic discourse between biological forms and their value as signs leading to the path of evolution: human perception and biological modes.

Alessandro Twombly was born in Rome, Italy in 1959 and currently resides in Rome. Apart from his solo exhibitions in New York, he has exhibited extensively in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and South America.
