"Perhaps this is exactly what Iudice wants to say. That mystery has to be sought in what is exotic and mysterious. Mystery finds refuge in things that are most familiar: nothing is more unknown than the friend we think we know as well as we know ourselves. By the way, what’s so strange? Is it that we really do know ourselves?
"Drawing, brought to this level, where technique is no longer satisfied with a banal virtuosity (virtuosity is always banal: only the naive are struck by it), helps to reveal the secret of things. Or better, to reveal that things hold a secret. Even the most familiar things, the most evident ones. That is why, in the case of Iudice, the expression 'metaphysical realism' is not a contradiction in terms. Because Iudice well knows (he learned it and wants to teach it to us) that the visible is divided into two more or less equal parts: the so-called visible and the invisible."
Elena Pontiggia, excerpted from Iudice: The Persistence of Drawing in Giovanni Iudice.

Text by Francesco Gallo, Elena Pontiggia.

Giovanni Iudice's paintings and drawings of physicality—of crowds of migrants, crowds dispersed across beaches, of individual nudes and lovers—are full of air and light, immediate and yet fondly remote. Using photography as a starting point, he transforms fleeting moments into classic depictions of the present.
