Matteo Massagrande: A Grand Tour

9 August - 1 September 2019

Matteo Massagrande’s new paintings feature his characteristic use of subtly-manipulated perspective. His is a world of mysterious vistas and abandoned interiors, filled with light and atmosphere. There is a new emphasis on specific sites and landscapes, particularly Venice, New York and Tuscany. This exhibition has something of the flavour of a modern- day ‘Grand Tour’. Untypically, in a few works, figures are present. An urban crowd populates the meticulously-defined cityscapes of Venice and New York, distinctly ephemeral against the lucid solidity of the architecture.
