SPACE ARTISTS: GIORGIO TARDONATO E PIERRE KUENTZ
Space Art is the perfect expression of the link between science and art, capable of sucessfully transmitting to the public a strong, enthralling dream of exploring the cosmos.
Giorgio Tardonato’s paintings stand out for their scientific accuracy, blended with the desire to express on canvas the wonder of the stars and the distant galaxies thousands of light years away, without ever allowing the imagination to prevail over the paintings’ own realism. He says: “Our universe contains all the beauty and necessary wonder in itself and the artist could not render the representation of nature even more amazing.”
Pierre Kuentz has a more sensitive approach to the representation of the universe. “In my paintings,” he says, “I want to reveal the great astonishment of man facing and observing a millennial, ineffable spectacle.”
OFFICINACENTO5: is an exhibition space based on a new concept according to which every form of culture is free to merge into innovative cultural programs. This location was specifically chosen by TCM for contemporary art. Officinacento5 is located in Viale Lecco 105 in Como.
TABLINUM CULTURAL MANAGEMENT: our projects derive from the will to create a cultural model in which art can succeed in communicating the core values that surpass the usual market logic and rediscover the primary value of culture as a nurturing force of human consciousness. This is why we like to consider ourselves above all “employees of culture.”
Free admission to all events.
