LONDON.- WW Gallery presents ‘Demigods’, a solo show of new paintings by Enzo Marra 22 April – 8 May. Enzo Marra’s painterly work is characterized by elements of history, mythology, surrealism and metamorphosis. His new ‘Demigods’ series is a tribute to some of the artists who have inspired him, Marra’s own personal heroes and heroines, rendered as deified mortals. Marra is an artist in his studio, painting artists at work in their studios, each depicted in a manner that conjures up our collective romantic vision of the artist toiling away in a cosy bohemian garret. Subjects from Francis Bacon to Gilbert & George and Jackson Pollock to Cornelia Parker, are all handled in the same thick impasto and tonal palette of blacks, greys and whites. Marra’s paintings have a nostalgic, reverential quality and surfaces that are laid bare for the comparisons that are there to be drawn.
