Florentine Light And Dark
New Zealand artist Pete Wheeler, 33, presents his first Italian solo exhibition, ‘Paths of the Destroyer’, at the Poggiali e Forconi Gallery in Florence. Berlin-based Wheeler says that the ‘Paths of the Destroyer’ are “a small part of something larger, a pluralism that you have to recognize yourself.” The 15 large format canvases which make up part of the exhibition depict figurative scenes, with images born of a strong conflict between light and darkness. Wheeler was born in Geraldine. In 2000, he graduated with a BFA from Otago Polytechnic’s School of Fine Art and since then, has held exhibitions throughout the world. ‘Paths of the Destroyer’ runs through 17 March.
