The show

The Sanità district shows itself in all its strength and beauty in the eyes and faces of its younger and more fragile children: children and young people painted and sculpted by Paolo La Motta, an artist who lives and works in the neighborhood.


Thanks to his vast visual culture and deep knowledge of sculptural and pictorial technique, La Motta manages to bring out the soul of these boys, their anguish, their hopes, their dreams, snapshots of a childhood that is often harsh and almost always too short.

These faces scrutinized, loved, respected and then stopped in terracotta or modeled through a full-bodied and plastic painting, will be exhibited in the contemporary art section of the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte during the Paolo La Motta exhibition. Capodimonte meets Health (from 18 February to 19 September 2021), curated by Sylvain Bellenger and Maria Tamajo Contarini, promoted and organized by the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte in collaboration with the Amici di Capodimonte Ets association and created thanks to the support of Campania Region, with European funds Poc - Complementary operational program 2014-2020, based on a design project by the architect Lucio Turchetta and coordinated by Maria Flavia Lo Regio. The exhibition brings together twenty-three paintings, nine sculptures and the Genny polyptych.


The exhibition is in connection with the other exhibition that the artist held at the Museum: Sensitive encounters: Paolo La Motta looks at Capodimonte (30 June 2018 - 24 February 2019) as part of the cycle of exhibitions-focus hosting artists contemporary in dialogue with the Capodimonte historical collection, in a dedicated room on the second floor. Paolo La Motta is an artist outside the contemporary art system, and from all systems. It is not represented by any gallery and does not speculate on social networks or the market.

His represents a very personal "movement", which combines a deep and vast knowledge of art - art of all times and all places - to which he constantly pays homage with passion, with an attentive and penetrating look at reality.

Proust talks with Balzac as Joyce talks with Flaubert, or Edward Hopper with Marquet, Felix Vallotton and Picasso.
