Tate Modern | Giorgio Morandi Exhibition


Several years ago, I visited an exhibition of paintings by Giorgio Morandi (Italy, 1890-1964) in Bologna, his hometown.
Anonymous glasses, plates, vases…I thought I’d get bored fast! – I wasn’t.
The artist used soft brown, yellow, blue, grey, and white. It was calm and luminous, strongly coherent and full of harmony. I felt surrounded by serenity.

‘Natura Morta 1′(still-life 1)

The Japanese artist and her bottles below brought back all these memories, though both techniques seem very different; there is more paint in Morandi’s works, no transparencies. He plays with simplified shapes to organise space.
