Marlene Dumas draws inspiration for her work from the images around her, ranging from personal snapshots and news photographs to literature. Through her composite compositions, sometimes accompanied by text, she comments on societal issues and social role patterns.
The present set of lithographs visually interprets Pier Paolo Pasolini's poem “Le Ceneri di Gramsci,” capturing its themes and essence through artistic expression. Through vivid imagery and introspection, the poem critiques bourgeois values, celebrates the legacy of Antonio Gramsci, and grapples with the search for meaning in a world marked by contradiction and nostalgia.
Ecco Pier Paolo Pasolinic is part of the collections of the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
