“Chasing these chimeras has been the main research by Francesco D’Adamo since 2017. These works are rooted in post-war Italian “Informale” movement and American Abstract Expressionism and are distinguished by a strong lyrical element in their composition and overall palette. As in all the paintings by Francesco D’Adamo, a pronounced musical aura is evident in all gestures and marks that cross the painting surface, as well as the union of traditional and contemporary techniques in its construction. As the titles of the paintings also suggest, the lyrical element is always accompanied by a narrative value, although deconstructed and reassembled in numerous different suggestions. The whole collection series consists of about 60 works, and it was concluded at the end of 2019.”
Chimere was also the name of a solo exhibition held during October 2017 at Palazzo SS. Salvatore, San Giovanni in Persiceto (BO).

“E l’immobilità dei firmamenti
E i gonfii rivi che vanno piangenti
E l’ombre del lavoro umano curve là sui poggi algenti
E ancora per teneri cieli lontane chiare ombre correnti
E ancora ti chiamo ti chiamo Chimera”
Dino Campana, La Chimera
