SABATINO CERSOSIMO Italian, b. 1974
Sabatino Cersosimo was born in Turin in 1974. Having been a graduate in design from the Instituto Albe Steiner in 1993, Cersosimo went on to study painting at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti of Turin, where he finished his degree in 1999. He now resides in Berlin, where he works in his atelier.
With his psychological and relational complexity, man is the center of Sabatino’s interest. Following a line that has its roots in expressionist painting and the Viennese Secession, Cersosimo’s paintings blend his interests in realism and expressive gestures. Developing his own technique, Cersosimo paints on a steel surface, while he explores attraction by experimenting with the effects of oxidation, obtained with water and other natural elements. Such oxidations act on the metal through their uncontrollability, while representing the notion of time passing; vividly evoking the the atmosphere of the moment, while condemning man to the physical and psychological decadence of his time of earth.

KronosSabatino Cersosimo + Rad Husak 31 Jan - 15 Mar 2019Dellasposa Gallery presents Kronos, an exhibition featuring new painting and photography works by contemporary artists Sabatino Cersosimo and Rad Husak. The show explores the expression of the human figure and the passing of time in painting and photography today. In this artistic dialogue, the figure, the body, is a locus of transgression. Each artist is creating inspiring figurative works that speak to the present and offer glimpses into the future, in the circle of Kronos, highlighting the impact and the importance of time in the process of creation.
