Franco Nonnis' Solo exhibition

The exhibition, set up by May Mask, puts together two different creative moments. It talks about Sardinian people, it represents men and women on travel: those who do it forever and those who would like to leave but decide to stay and do it occasionally.

The works made in 2016 are the most colourful and rich. They are part of “Exodus”, a portrait of our recent emigrants, people who have left the Island taking away competences and big or little treasures.

The most recent works, made in 2017 and 2018, are marked by stronger and unique colours. They represent those who stay and try to live their everyday life in a poor land , with limited prospects.

The paintings are on the upper floor. Nonnis randomly draws from the materials and colours available at that moment, in total freedom; the use of poor and unused materials, destined for oblivion, gives greater impetus to translate those useless things into a message of colours or meanings, in order to remember that everything has a value that can be expressed through a different use. The meaning is expressed in the titles.
