Piero Lerda, Athens, 14 febbraio 2015

This exhibition presents a cross-section of the work of Italian artist Piero Lerda (1927–2007). Drawing philosophical and literary themes from Jean-Paul Sartre, George Bernanos, Friedrich Nietzsche and others, Lerda wove together recognizable shapes and cryptic recurring symbols to form personal alphabets that he returned to throughout the course of his life. He concerned himself with juxtapositions, seeking to find a balance between order and chaos, good and evil, pessimism and witty irony.

Working meticulously in a variety of media such as India ink and wax, acrylic paint and innumerable collage materials from candy wrappers to corrugated cardboard, Lerda created abstract works that are at once playful and cerebral.
