Marco Tirelli

 

The Artist

Marco Tirelli was born in Rome in 1956. He currently lives and works in Rome and Spoleto. Tirelli attended the Accademia di Belle Arti and graduated with a degree in Set Design under Toti Scialoja.
Tirelli's paintings depict abstract subjects and indeterminate forms interacting with light and shadow, such that they appear to occupy three-dimensional space. The forms on his monumental canvases are rendered with a soft sfumato that Tirelli has perfected over the course of years, creating careful gradations of charcoal on paper; in fact, the highlights and shadows in his later works are created using a pointillist technique, although with airbrushes rather than paintbrushes. To keep the purity of his paints, he filters them through tulle, and then dilutes them to achieve different levels of viscosity.
Tirelli has had important solo shows at institutions such as: the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica – Palazzo Poli (2013), MACRO, Rome (2012), Museo di Palazzo fortuna, Venice (2010), Galleria Comunale d'Arte Moderna, Bologna (2003), and Institut Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt (2002). Tierelli's works have been included in many group shows in Italian institutions including but not limited to: Mart, Rovereto (2005, 2007, 2009 and 2012), Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna (2004 e 2010), and MAXXI, Rome (2010). He has also participated in important international expositions such as: the Biennales of Sao Paolo (1991), Sydney (1990), and Paris (1985). Most recently, he participated in the 2013 Venice Biennial at Italian Pavilion ''Vice Versa'' exhibition.
