When art meets the bicycle: BICYCLE EXHIBITION @ DiXmiX Gallery

BICYCLE EXHIBITION @ DiXmiX Gallery BICYCLE EXHIBITION @ DiXmiX Gallery

Art has often met the bicycle, capturing its various aspects, colors, angles, and sensations.

The bicycle brings to mind an image of freedom, which the car is not able to transmit: it does not give, in fact, the wind on the body, the hair that caresses the face, that impression of moving quickly without losing contact with the context, human and environmental.

Also, the bicycle carries fatigue and exercise, which is the antechamber of health and good humor.

Since I was a child, the bike has accompanied my days outdoors: the most painful falls have arrived with it and with roller skates!

Remembering these moments of childhood and childhood gives me lightheartedness for a moment and a smile on my lips.

These feelings that accompany my memories are undoubtedly shared by the exhibiting artists at the DixMix Art Gallery, which this time, makes us a gift of a themed exhibition: the bicycle.

A combination that I consider winning is that between bicycle and vintage images, so I particularly enjoyed the black and white photos.

This doesn’t mean that other images are less valuable, of course, it’s just my personal taste.

Walking through the corridors of the DixMix was very pleasant, mainly because it is interesting to see how the many artists have represented the same theme in a very different way.

Relaxation, dream, city life, ancient landscapes, the narration of a story and, even, sensuality, are just some of the themes that can be appreciated in this original exhibition of virtual photography that will remain open during July and August.

Quando l’arte incontra la bicicletta: BICYCLE EXHIBITION @ DiXmiX Gallery

L’arte ha spesso incontrato la bicicletta, immortalandone i vari aspetti, colori, angolature e sensazioni.

La bicicletta ci fa venire in mente una immagine di libertà, che l’auto non è in grado di trasmettere: essa non regala, infatti, il vento sul corpo, i capelli che accarezzano il viso, quella impressione di muoversi rapidamente senza perdere il contatto con il contesto, umano e ambientale.

Inoltre, la bicicletta porta con sè fatica ed esercizio fisico, ovvero l’anticamera della salute e del buonumore.

Sin da piccola, la bicicletta ha accompagnato le mie giornate all’aperto: le cadute più dolorose sono arrivate con essa e con i pattini a rotelle!

Ricordare questi momenti di infanzia e fanciullezza, mi dona spensieratezza per un attimo e un sorriso sulle labbra.

Queste sensazioni che accompagnano i miei ricordi, sono certamente condivise dagli artisti espositori presso la DixMix Art Gallery, che questa volta, ci fa dono di una esibizione a tema: la bicicletta.

Un connubio che ritengo vincente è quello tra bicicletta e immagini d’epoca, quindi ho apprezzato in modo particolare gli scatti fotografici in bianco e nero.

Questo non significa che le altre immagini abbiano meno valore, ovviamente, si tratta solamente di un mio gusto personale.

Passeggiare tra i corridoi della DixMix è stato molto piacevole, soprattutto perchè è interessante vedere come i numerosi artisti hanno rappresentato lo stesso tema in maniera molto diversa fra loro.

Relax, sogno, vita di città, paesaggi antichi, narrazione di una storia e, addirittura, sensualità, sono solo alcuni dei temi che si possono apprezzare in questa originale esposizione di fotografia virtuale che resterà aperta durante i mesi di Luglio e Agosto.
