Reginald Sylvester II: The Rise and Fall of a People
16 March 2017, 3:03 PM
Opening 16 March, Maximillian William is pleased to present The Rise and Fall of a People, a solo exhibition by Reginald Sylvester II at Fondazione Stelline, Milan.
Characterized by a rich and varied pictorial language, Sylvester’s paintings exist in a place in between abstraction and figuration, where instinctive gestures are translated into immediate and spiritually charged communicative forms. The body of work prepared for the exhibition at Fondazione Stelline captures a particularly important moment in the artist’s career. The introspective view of Sylvester’s early works is gradually evolving into a study on the outside world, initiating a series of new reflections on how the personal sphere can interact with the collective body. Primarily focused on portraiture, these new works touch on Biblical themes to address the critical times Western society is currently facing, as the title ‘The Rise and Fall of a People’ testifies.
The exhibition will run from 16 March 2017 – 01 April 2017.
