Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition â€œTerritoriosâ€ opened on March 2 with a private viewing with the artist and Gary Nader to celebrate the opening of the exhibit. Consul General of Brazil in Miami Adalnio Senna Ganem was in attendance.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early â€˜60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the â€˜70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the â€˜80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics.
