Nicola Samori, Leblanc, oil on wood, 2011

Another Bologna connection (see post Space To Play) Nicola Samori (born 1977 in Forli, Italy) studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna. His painting on canvas, wood and copper references Italian Baroque, and employs vigorous techniques of peeling and scraping to add psychological depth to the work. More images can be seen at the Berlin Gallery, Christian Ehrentraut.
