Daniele Fissore | Original prints, lithographs, etchings and illustrated books
Daniele Fissore was born in 1947 in Savigliano (Cuneo). He began his artistic career as self-taught, which has now lasted for over forty years.
In 1975 he participated in the X Quadriennale in Rome and in 1976 in the "Biennale del Disegno" in Milan.
Back in Italy, he intensified his exhibition activity, with numerous solo and group exhibitions in various Italian galleries, orienting his pictorial choices to the theme of "Green".
Fissore links his research to the La Bussola Gallery in Turin, inaugurating an intense artistic and professional partnership. In 1993, with a solo show dedicated to "Large formats", he unveiled the methods of his work, combining charcoal sketches with the major editions.
In the same context he presents paintings on the new theme of the "Sea", through which he explores and deepens the emotional and imaginative aspects of the landscape, to the point of estranging it from its materiality, to return it in almost abstract passages, with a weave of waves, lights , reflexes.
In 2001 he interrupted his exhibition activity and continued his pictorial research, renewing his interest in the "Grays' of the beginning (" Telephone booths "," Opposizioni ") and exhibited in 2005, in the exhibition La Via del Sale at the castle of Prunetto, in 'Alta Langa, with the titles "Video", "Gray Green", "Cieli Nuvolosi".
In 2006, on his way back to the original subjects, he also takes up the theme of the monuments dedicated to the heroes of the Risorgimento and started in 1985. From that year there are some unpublished sketches and paintings dedicated to the monument of Santorre di Santarosa located in the square of the same name in Savigliano . Over the years, this research has become increasingly broad and complex, also addressing other monuments dedicated to the various heroes of the Risorgimento, of which a singular operation of linguistic decontextualization of sculpture is highlighted. Through a strongly pictorial use of color, Fissore underlines the psychological and human aspects of the various characters investigated.
Since 2007, with the “Eroica” project, Daniele Fissore has developed and conceived an OPEN AIR public installation - 560sqm in size - for the New Parco Dora in Turin on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy. Inaugurated in May 2011, it is a work where the original paintings of the "Heroes" pictorial cycle are reproduced on an urban scale and reworked by Fissore with ad hoc pictorial gestures and historical quotations of the protagonists of the Risorgimento.
On June 17, 2011, the exhibition “Eroica” opens at the Regional Museum of Natural Sciences in Turin. Known and Unknown Heroes ”which collects the original paintings of the Parco Dora installation.
Since 2012 Fissore has continued the cycle of off videos and has taken up, updating them, the historical themes of the Pic-Nic.
