I Foresti | Anne Leith, Robin McClintock, Martin Weinstein & Millicent Young

April 19 @ 8:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm

As there are no forests in Venice, the Venetian dialect phrase for “foreigner” is “foresti” or “someone from the forest”. I Foresti, a group exhibition at Castello 925, plays on that vernacular expression as these American artists are not only foreigners to Venice but are inspired by the materials and rich textures of the forest. I Foresti explores the meanings of the Venetian phrase “foresti” as surveyors of the sensory experience of nature (Weinstein and Leith), or purveyors of the rhythms of its hidden life forms (McClintock) or a cartographer of the foreigner’s journey (Young). Together, these artists convey the experience of the forest and the foreigner as inspiration, destination and refuge to the city of Venice in tandem with the theme of the 60th Biennale “Strangers Everywhere“.

About the Artists:
Anne Leith: Anne Leith is a painter of places, both observed and oneiric. The
landscape is integral to her practice and the personal immersion into a greater whole is
her over-arching aesthetic.

Robin McClintock: Robin McClintock, a native New Yorker, who moved to rural West
Virginia half-way through her career, conjures from that dichotomy intricate, elegant yet
heavily wrought works on paper that weave the chaos of spatial memory, vestigial
industrial architecture, and nature into an uncanny personal order.

Martin Weinstein: Martin Weinstein builds layers of perception from painted acrylic
layers with each combining to describe a whole. These paintings, rooted in the
landscape tradition, represent perpetually shifting perceptions that evolve into personal
records of space, being and memory.

Millicent Young: In her use of humble materials, Millicent Young castes lyrical
abstractions as timeless artifacts. With wood, horsehair and repurposed metal, Young
conveys the story of the human journey from the known to the unknown.

I Foresti opens with a reception for the artists Friday, April 19, 5 -8pm at Castello 925, Fondamenta San Giuseppe, Sestiere Castello 925 and 780, 30122 Venice, Italy and runs through Sunday, June 23, 2024.
