Press Release

Italian artist Willy Verginer presents his latest series of sculptures at the Galerie LeRoyer in Montreal on May 30th, 2019 for an exceptional exhibition: "Eyes Wide Shut".

Willy Verginer is an Italian sculptor, living and working in Val Gardena. Verginer creates hyperrealist wood sculptures, drawing inspiration from the arresting nature surrounding him and the fragility of our environment. The work engages with ecological and environmental issues we are faced with in our contemporary world. His work often explores the ambiguous relations between Man and Nature, and more importantly our responsibility as humans to respect, protect and preserve the natural world. Verginer has been enticing collectors around the globe for decades with his striking life-sized sculptures; his pieces are often characterized by a systematic use of acrylic paint that is applied in opaque linear bands. Subsequently, Verginer’s sculptures oscillate between realism and surrealism, forcing the viewer to contemplate the underlying message while also insinuating a sense of playfulness and irony.

Verginer’s coveted installation “Aqua Alta” will be unveiled on the opening night of the exhibition. This installation is an ongoing project for Verginer - the first edition was shown at the Venice Biennale in 2011. The scene depicts a series of bathers that seem transfixed, as though they are waiting in anticipation for something to happen, leaving the viewer in the same state of unknown.
