The penetrating vision of the work of Giancarlo Impiglia provides a compelling portrait of the mood and mores of the twentieth century. From rush hour to cocktail hour ; from bustling city streets to serene stretches of beach; from elegant gatherings in opulent penthouses and aboard luxurious ocean liners to intimate Romantic encounters on moonlit terraces and posh dance floors – the realities and fantasies of our time and culture are depicted with infinite flair in the colorful compositions and bold images filling Impiglia paintings.
A keen observer, he examines both the ever passing parade of ordinary workday activities, and the progression of special occasions and celebrations that lend extra dash and sparkle to our existence. What people do, Where they go, how they behave-these are things Impiglia finds endlessly fascinating. For him there is a special challenge in discovery, in finding the new in the familiar. To this task Impiglia applies his formidable talent for interpretation, and establishes himself as a leading chronicler of our actions, hopes, and desires.
