Caccioni, born in Bologna in 1962, is one of the protagonists of a generation that has reached a definitive linguistic maturation and occupies an important place in the contemporary art scene. 

Caccioni presents his works in Rome with a new cycle of paintings, especially realized for this occasion entitled “What it seems”. The exhibition exist in about thirty works, of different size, where the pictorial knowledge is matched with an extraordinary inventive capacity and with a significant capacity to play with the given suggestions offered by the unusual material on which the painting is developed.

The subjects of the paintings are extremely various, have different origins and compose a surprising, ambiguous world where every image represents itself but at the same time it refers to something else. In this perspective, also the technique used by Caccioni assumes a decisive importance, made of shades and nuances that suggest always new interpretative possibilities to the spectator.

A painting is at the same time essential and rich in suggestions and variations, poetic and sensual, capable of big refinements and improvised expressive hardness.

For over a decade Caccioni exhibits regularly in Italy and abroad: along with the personal shows in recent years in public spaces such as the Galleria Civica of Modena and the GAM of Bologna. We like to remind also his solo exhibitions in private galleries like Otto Arte Contemporanea of Bologna, Uecker & Carzaniga Basel, Lorenzelli of Milan and the participation in numerous group exhibitions, among which we cite the recent “Quadrennial” in Turin, “The art the nature the wonder” in different museums of the Veneto, the “Premio Michetti” in Francavilla a Mare.

The exhibition will be presented by a catalogue, published by SKIRA. A critical essay will be written by Walter Guadagnini.
