New paintings by Milan-based artist Dario Maglionico (previously featured here). The term “doppelgänger” translates to “double-goer” — one example being a time-traveller who goes back in time to encounter a younger version of themselves. Maglionico’s latest series similarly explores processes of transposed experience, combining past and present in such a way that audiences are encouraged to question themselves in relation to where they are and what they are doing:
“Dominated by a feeling of estrangement and suspension, Maglionico’s painting represents in figurative terms – that is, without ever resorting to the expedient of abstract synthesis – a luminal dimension where the inner reality of the emotional states intersects the exterior of the concrete forms, a kind of middle ground that suggests the physical theories about parallel worlds and David Deutsch’s multiverse.”
