Nomadism - 12 May 2011

Salvo Pastorello is attracted by costumes and traditions very different from his own, something fixed in his life has always been the idea of travelling, not just like a tourist but with an anthropologist’s approach and sensitivity, he is ready to observe, hear and comprehend other cultures to the deepest integration, but without forgetting his identity and his artistic role.
Of Sicilian origin but with a Veronese education, he has developed a sunny painting in which the protagonists are the bold colours spread with an impulsive and energetic brushwork.
This tendency has not disappeared with the Polynesian experience in Bora Bora where the artist stayed for a long period searching for a more “primitive” way of life.
Returned to his Lake Garda, he introduces in his canvases stylized figures handled in any case with a vigorous chromaticism that gives his painting a strong impulse. Elements of his story, of his childhood and of the lands he has known are suggested on canvas and sometimes erased by strong-willed sings, such as fragments of past meanings; other times they multiply to confirm their importance. At the same time he starts a great exhibition activity both national and international.
Keeping faith to his temperament, he restarts wandering with frequent travels to North Europe and in particular to Oslo in Norway; his painting evolves similarly and from a purely abstract aspect it acquires more conceptual features showing an increasing intolerance for the obvious and the conventional. In other Pastorello’s works it is explicit a provocation between irony and scandal fed with slight comparisons between the cultures he has learned to know and his own Italian origin.
Figures become symbols, brush strokes converge on signs and stylized everyday objects appear. In the meantime, Pastorello deepens his passion for eastern philosophy, attraction that reaches its peak with the current experience in China where since about a year he spends most of his life. In his study in Shanghai are born his works as a result of the contact with eastern culture, influence that is evident in both the introduction of the rice-paper as brace and in the representation of typical Chinese pictures and situations: the coming and going of people, the cyclists and their writing’s ideograms that have taken the place of primitive strokes. Anyway in every of his works the chromaticism remains the protagonist: as light blue represented his Polynesian experience, now gold, red and ideograms are the Chinese emblem: the transposition of eastern atmosphere in the recognizable artist’s style.
This last experience too confirms Pastorello’s love for “nomadism” lived not only physically but also culturally as a constant incentive to his production. This tendency of his is part of a larger need of our mass society for experience changes of contact between different way of life and thought, between physical spaces and their influences in the behaviour models in totally unknown enviroment.

If it is true that the life of the artist is expression of his talent, Patorello’s talent is the result of the story of his life.

Tintoretto - Pombo, Maternity and Passion
10/05/2019 - 20/08/2019
Tintoretto - Pombo, Maternity and Passion
The Spanish painter revisits the Marian cycle of the Master of the Venetian Renaissance: a universal tribute to the maternal figure and condition of women in the world.
After the success of the opening exhibition "Passion and Justice", which ended last January, Jorge R. Pombo continues the dialogue with Tintoretto's paintings at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice. The Spanish painter, this time, chose to revisit seven masterpieces of the Master of the Venetian Renaissance which depict as many paradigmatic moments of the earthly life of the Virgin Mary: Annunciation, Flight into Egypt, Massacre of the Innocents, Mary in meditation, Maria Egiziaca, Crucifixion and Assumption.
A universal tribute to femininity, to the woman as a mother, creature and creator, who finds her archetype in the figure of the Madonna.
