Brighetti's work always has a vaguely horror movie feel to it. You think it is going to break out of the glass and a) eat your soul b) attach itself to your spine or c) do any number of things that happen in the "Aliens" movies.
But his work is more than just "scary" it has accumulated accolades around the world for its innovation and aesthetic beauty. It often reminds me of Baudelaire--Flowers of Evil and all that.
Pignatelli is an Milan-based artist whose work is built (in part at least) around the notion of "the archive." You will need to take an art history class to get at all the various things the notion of "the archive" refers to (and will likely have to take two classes one dealing with classical notions and another dealing with more recent iconoclastic notions on the subject). Or you can read Pignatelli's biography at the gallery website HERE.
The gallery also represents the incomparable Federico Solmi (we didn't include his work because we've done it so many times before!)
