Letter envelopes, postcards, maps, letters and manuscripts become the pieces, combined in variable rhythms and numbers as new 'canvases' create a bridge between past and present, as if the stories told on postcards, letters and maps were mixed with those of the women depicted.
Born in 1981 in Rome, where he currently lives and works.
Fabio Imperiale made a decisive approach to painting in 2004, after graduating from the graphic academy in Rome.
Since 2010 Imperiale has dedicated himself to depict anonymous crowds immersed in a dynamic urban landscape, which will later become individuals-shadows and women "suspended", with suitcases and umbrellas, waiting for a train or an airplane in places that cannot be placed in space and in time. From 2014, Imperiale focuses on solitary and monochrome figures placed in unidentifiable spaces, returning to the 'female' figure as an exclusive subject. Despite the constant absence of clothes, the portrait is reversed, and the exploration switched from an exterior to an interior point of view. These are the years of Istinto di separazione,Sineddoche, and the solo exhibition "Nottetempo". In this period, Imperiale approaches private postal material: letter envelopes, postcards, maps, letters and manuscripts become the pieces, combined in variable rhythms and numbers, for its new 'canvases'. A separate chapter is dedicated to the series created on letter envelopes; an idea born from the reading of "Envelopes of Poetry" by Emily Dickinson. From many years he has collaborated with numerous Italian galleries in personal and collective exhibitions and prestigious fairs.
