Saturday, November 17, 2018
7:30 – 9 PM
Opening words by dr. Zanolino.
Every time Mrs. Lusette Verboom-Fairbairn, owner of Gallery Alma Blou, pays a visit to the studio of Philippe Zanolino he surprises her again with new, old work. His place is full of magic and his work is fresh and timeless. Zanolino feels that his artistic expression is an inspiration from above. His art is especially popular with collectors.
In the nineties Zanolino intended to do an exhibition in his native country France and hereto made a special collection of artworks. Due to circumstances the exhibition never happened. He recently got all the boxes full of artworks back and has now decided to share them with the audience in Curacao.
Philippe Zanolino has been trained as a medical doctor. Only when he was doing his internship in France he discovered that being a doctor was not what he wanted for his life. Of course this was a great disappointment for his parents, but they allowed him to follow his heart and become an artist.
At first his paintings were very realistic but over the years Philippe embraced the abstract way of working. He never knows where his intuition will take him when he starts working. This brings lots of magic to his work. By looking closely you will look for a face, animals and other magical revelations in his work.
The exhibitions remained till December 8, 2018.
