ROBERT POLIDORI: FRA ANGELICO / OPUS OPERANTIS
4 September – 12 October, 2019

“The series of photographs Fra Angelico/Opus Operantis centres on the restored frescoed interiors in the 15th Century San Marco Convent by Italian painter Fra Angelico, Dominican friar and one of the principle painters of the Early Renaissance. Polidori’s photographs excavate the psychological structure of the rooms, exploring a connection between the calm interior spaces of the monk’s cells and the spiritual charge of Fra Angelico’s striking masterworks depicting the life of Christ, which were designed to augment meditation and prayer.”
