Ivo Rossi Sief
Ivo Rossi Sief
Born 1949 in Innichen, Italy, he began to study psychology in Innsbruck and architecture in Venice. The stadium at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna under professor Gustav Peichl, Josef Mokl, Max Weiler, Maximilian Melcher and the cooperation with Giselbert Hoke as well as the encounter with Professor Clemens Holzmeister shaped his artistic development.
Ivo Rossis pieces have many layers and levels. It starts with a consistend colouring. Again and again he almost obsessively commits himself to a series kept in a certain colour, which he lays on layer after layer. On that, abstract elements paired with small figures are applied, which Rossi pulls outbrings up from their hideouts into the light of day and thus giving them significance. The object is topped off with messages, the artist writes by himself. The viewer is forced to move very close to the art piece, observing it literarily in a bent position, almost diving into the picture.
The numerous levels and messages and the strong charisma of his pictures will mesmerize the audience and make the room shine.
