L.A. Exhibitions. Mario Canali New Works at DAC Gallery

In his third solo exhibition at DAC Gallery in Los Angeles, artist Mario Canali presents an evolution of his work in larger-scale paintings on canvas developed in his Laurel Canyon studio.

Mario Canali is a visionary. His representations deepen explorations into the complexity, beauty and discrepancy of the contemporary human being. His goal in painting is to incorporate an emotional dimension to the spatial dimensions; it is emotion that shapes his human hybrids, their uncommon behaviors, and the evocative landscapes in which they exist.

There are no random elements in Canali’s work; the spatial dimension seems to drive his paintings to an extreme precision, immediacy and strength.

Mario Canali has a passion for life. His representations are drawn not only from life experiences, personal encounters, situations and events, but also from the study of human beings. It is these very explorations that led him to create interactive installations capable of sensing psychophysical parameters, which have been experienced by thousands of people from all walks of life around the world.

For Mario Canali, painting after the digital experience can be seen as media (software + hardware) to efficiently represent realistic simulations of imaginary worlds. Los Angeles’ unique history and landscape became the ideal setting for Canali’s new vision.

The exhibition will feature oil paintings on canvas and panel, as well as drawings on panel.

Born in Monza, Milan, Italy, Mario Canali began his artistic career in 1975, devoting the first ten years to painting. Shortly thereafter, he turned his attention to electronic and digital art and is considered a pioneer in the field. Second to John Lasseter at Ars Electronica in Linz for two consecutive years, and winner of numerous awards at the national level (Nastro d’Argento, Rome) as well as internationally (Imagina, Monte Carlo) in the field of computer graphics and 3D animation, Mario Canali pioneered immersive virtual reality (Satori, 1992) and interactive installations, using body parameters to probe people’s emotional states. In October 2012, he developed and published the iPad application “Hungry&FoolishScribbleTest”, a personality test capable of gauging how Hungry and Foolish you are. Canali’s studies and research in the fields of digital media, new paradigms of science, psychology and neurology earned him teaching credentials at Accademia di Brera in Milan for “Virtual Reality and Paradigms of Complexity”, and at NABA Academy of Arts and Design in Milan for “Emotional Scenes and Cognitive Environments”.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
