selection works from the series “Rewritings”:

the works in this exhibition demonstrate how writing and printed paper in the media can be a terrain to “plunder” and inspiration for Piero Varroni’s work. An invitation to another reading. Leaving aside almost entirely the informational and conceptual contents, the form of the texts on the pages of the newspapers offers a basis for the aforementioned rewrites. A typographic deconstruction with shifts from normal linguistic codes, with semantic and coloristic “break-ins”; a mapping of barely legible findings, or rather, an appropriation of “ready-made-writings” extrapolated from hyper-communication. Recent artist books and works on paper will be exhibited.
Painter and printmaker, Piero Varroni was born in 1951; Graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, he began a series of artistic experiences, which, from the first achievements with a figurative connotation, progressed to conceptual results. After a period of several years, in which he dealt with photography and engraving, in the early nineties, he became interested in artist’s books.
In 1996 he founded the Eos Artist’s Books Editions, which was followed by the Cultural Association of the same name. Since 1999, in addition to the artist’s books, he has been publishing a limited edition Artist’s Magazine, in which verbal and visual language “confront and relate to each other in an orderly graphic compendium”; the 7 issues of RivistaFoglio 2017-2021 and the magazine “Senza Titolo” n.1 and n.2 - 2021-2022 will follow.
He has engaged in the promotion of poetic and pictorial languages, with presentations and exhibitions.
He lives and works in Rome.
