TATOM, The Anachronistic Thoughts of Man, a solo exhibition of paintings by Dominique Ciancio, was held at the Arte Gallery in Victoria, Gozo.
Through a series of oil paintings, Dominique Ciancio takes a look at the fleeting nature of time and how values seem to shift with it. TATOM stems from a number of enduring controversies. Are there everlasting and unchanging principles that stand through time like solid immovable trees? And how can a painting discern the heart and thoughts of man?
TATOM is an attempt at exploring a few of these ideas.
