About

Acrylic on canvas. Signed bottom left. Additional signature on the back, with title, date and location (Venice). Originally from Udine, he moved early to Turin, where he completed his studies, Luigi Rocca started to be recognized as a sixteen-year-old student, with town and regional exhibitions, when he favoured the figurative subject, but he was also fascinated by landscapes. Rocca was a follower of hyperrealism, which aims at an objective representation of reality, and, fascinated by the United States, he dedicated to this Country a large part of his production, painting views of big cities, New York in particular, from the large roads to the small corners of "foreign" neighbourhoods with style and an almost photographic result. His "portraits" of luxury cars and motorcycles are also peculiar. The artist paints them with a crude realism that leaves nothing to his emotional participation: like in the piece here proposed, he makes a thorough investigation of the qualities of materials and light effects, recording all the reflexes evoked by the light falling on the car body. In 1998, he participated in the Art Expo of New York; he participated in many Italian and international shows and exhibitions. Since 1996, Rocca went back to living in Venice and displays his paintings in his reference Gallery, Melori & Rosenberg, in Campo del Ghetto Nuovo. Since October 2007, his pieces - both originals and canvas reproductions - are permanently on display in New York at the Arnot Galleries, 57th Street. Framed piece.
