Paolo Treni was born in 1981 on the shores of Lake Garda. His research applies the theatri-cal method based on the analysis of movement by Jacques Lecoq to scenography. By drawing Treni transposes in the virtual environment an active meditation technique inspired by the ancient oriental art of Suminagashi. Combining technology and craftsmanship, he transcribes his oneiric world into Plexiglas. In the laboratory he tests its alchemical properties by shaping it with lasers, enamels, pigments and varnishes. Thanks to Maison et Objet fair (Paris, 2013) his work is appreciated by architects and interior designers: from this moment he refines his style, being mindful of masters such as Robert Irwin and James Turrell; his works - always played on alternation and perceptual simultaneity - amplify the space through reflections and variations of the chromatic spectrum. Thus elevating the work to the third dimension and reaching the synthesis between painting and sculpture, materiality and immateriality. In 2017 he won the Montal / Arte Award for his ability to combine aesthetic research, art and poetry. In 2018 Ivan Quaroni curates "Simulacra", his first public exhibition, at the Firmafede Fortress in Sarzana, IT. In September 2018 he is the youngest artist to take part of the permanent collection in Portofino Park Museum - International Outdoor Sculpture Center. In 2019 The work CPH4 (Simulacri di Luce series) enters the collection of Lucrezia De Domizio Durini at Palazzo Durini in Bolognano (Pe), Italy. In 2019 he is in Berlin, in dialogue with the photographer Boris Eldagsen, in the bi-personal “Another Multiverse ", at Luisa Catucci Gallery.
