Thomas Mazzarella Gallery Art

Having grown-up with the revolution of the Sega Master gaming system, Thomas Mazzarella depicts the metropolis as an ambivalent metaphor where modern and post-modern architecture is both the place of all fantasies—funny, bizarre and intriguing like a video-game—as well as a highly artificial space where the ability to dream is the way to escape. A sense of nostalgia permeates his paintings as if we all were the amnesic primitives of a new era, forced to accept the conditions of contemporary existence. Here, the viewer occupies an ambiguous position. A voyeur behind a screen, isolated from reality, unable to reach it, but still willing to grasp the meaning of it, to be part of it.


Mazzarella has shown his work in a number of exhibitions including Ianchelevici museum, La Louvière, Galerie Flux, Liège, Les Brasseurs, Liège, Aeroplastics contemporary, Brussels, Rossicontemporary, Brussels, and the Museum cultuur Strombeek Gent, all in Belgium, and Albuslux, Roosendaal, NL, Gallery16, San Francisco, CA, Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles, Paris, and the Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago.
