‘A Lady asks me. I speak in season. She seeks a reason for an affect, wild often That is so proud he has LOVE for a name.’ (Ezra Pound)
Ezra Pound fan Roberto Floreani
The light, inviting work of Venetian artist Roberto Floreani deals with the balance between motion and inertia. On several panels, Floreani oscillates between abstraction and realism, pure painting and meaning, expressed through the poetry of Ezra Pound. Pound, who completed his ‘Cantos’ in 1958-1962 in the Brunnenberg in nearby Meran, has long been an important marker in Floreani’s work.
