Framed in dark wenge
Melbourne artist Nunzio Miano’s latest body of work is a response to his personal thought processes concerning the ever-changing world we find ourselves in.
Says Nunzio Miano of his latest solo exhibition: “Citizens of the state is an exploration of a future state of humanity. The world is experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, restricting movement and forcing us to reinvent the way we live. Citizens around the world have found themselves locked within their homes and bound by their territories.
In this exhibition I explore a new humanity—a life lived in limited freedom. The abstract figures are seemingly lifeless and devoid of personality—with abstract ties connecting them to the states in which they belong. We are left to inflict our own emotions upon these figures in their dystopian state. My abstract portraits explore a dark new world, with bold colour and mark-making. The connection between each figure depicts the cross-cultural and cross-continental emotional struggle shared over the past year.”
