About

Informal Painting is an original artwork realized by Giorgio Lo Fermo in 2018. Oil on canvas. Perfect conditions. It is a representation of an abstract composition characterized by a strong contrast between the warm background and the cold blue shapes on the foreground. The large spots of color seem to emerge from the orange and red background. The name of the painting pays homage to Informal Painting, an art trend born in Europe between 1940 and 1950. Informal painters worked in a spontaneous improvisatory way, and they often used large brushes to make sweeping marks. Like the Informal paintings, also Lo Fermo's work examines the possibilities of materials and colors through the use of simplified shapes and colors used in an emotional and expressive way. Giorgio Lo Fermo is an Italian painter and sculptor. He was born in Sicily in 1947, but has lived and worked in Rome since the mid-1960s. He studied at the School of Arts and Crafts of San Giacomo and then Sociology of Art at the University of Rome. His innovative style took form in the 70s, in the stimulating atmosphere of the new Rome, re-born through the creative vitality of Fellini and Rossellini. Lo Fermo’s style is a studied symbolic elaboration of varying rhythms, in which objectivity and logic give way to a liberal expression of the dynamic content. His concept is reanimated in color and in aesthetics, which take kinetic paths toward both reality and fantasy, connecting themselves intimately with experience and interior tension. During his career, Giorgio Lo Fermo has participated in international exhibitions in New York (1992), Stockholm (1992), Budapest (1992/1993), Hong Kong (1994) and in the International Art Competition of New York in 1995. He won several important recognitions and awards: the Italian Art Leader Award ’92, the Art and World Prize of Hong Kong in 1994; he was also nominated member of the Accademia Internazionale Greci/Marino. The major galleries in Rome, such as A. Consorti, Gradiva, Babuino and Yanika, exhibit his canvases, and his work is held in private collections both in Europe and in America.
