NOEL STEIN

A TRAVEL STORY THROUGH THE LENS OF OBSCURA USA


THE SERIES The Atelier Home Gallery has recently curated the VELATURE exhibition of Venetian painter Roberto del Frate, aimed to bring to the public a selection of artworks representing the sea and the sails made by Roberto del Frate during his 30 years of painting career. Through an Italian word-play, the title of the exhibition (VELATURE) wants to underline two elements present in the paintings of Roberto del Frate. The "glaze" technique (mixture to which the dry pigment is added) and the sail as symbol of freedom to discover new things. The artist transposes in his paitings the metaphor of journey (as in the Odysseus of Dante) as the discovery of unknown and the different experiences and situations of own life, as tableaux's of own personal story. The tone of red, blue, purple and brown of these sails tell in the canvas the various spirit of the artist giving an emotional importance of the city of Trieste (Italy) and its symbols as the gulf, Vittoria lighthouse and the main square (Piazza Unità d’Italia). Velature wants to leave a track of “foedus” between Roberto del Frate and Trieste, imagining as a place to reflect on the beauty and maritime tradition of this old sea port of Austro-Hungarian empire.

THE ARTIST Roberto del Frate is a professional painter of Venetian roots and painter son, who has recently opened his own atelier at his historical home in the Panfili Palace of Trieste, which became also exhibition space managed by the art gallery Atelier Home Gallery. The Roberto del Frate’s art is in a continuous evolution: from the oil technique inspired by the Venice Laguna painters to the landscapes inspired by the French impressionists, passing through the modern urban ambient, landing to the soul landscape: the portrait. For his artworks, he uses a mixture of acrylic and oil, crayon, charcoal, exploring also the innovative digital techniques.
