Francesco D'Adamo

1. Mythological creature with a lion’s head and body, a goat’s head on its back and a snake’s tail, also bearing a head. It is portrayed in ancient art while spitting fire and is considered to be the physical embodiment of destructive forces.
2. An unfounded idea, a vain dream, fantasy, utopia: chasing chimeras.

Chasing these chimeras has been the main concern from 2017 to 2019, yet the first attempts to shape the series date back to 2015. Its first works were exhibited in October 2017 during the homonymous exhibition held at Palazzo SS. Salvatore in San Giovanni in Persiceto (BO), while its mature period is conveyed almost entirely in the December 2018 “Discanto” exhibition at Gallery 212 in Bologna. The Chimere collection includes 51 works, all of them are reported here with no specific order. Its visual research continued with the Imago series.
