Bringing together a selection of nineteen portraits and self-portraits, Victor Man’s solo exhibition Eyelids, Towards Evening focuses, for the first time, on those painting genres that have taken on a profound relevance within his artistic practice over the last decade.

Bathed in a mostly penumbral light, Man’s figures are caught in contemplation, absorbed in their thoughts, or portrayed in states of abandon and tender closeness. They seem to inhabit a profoundly human time and space yet, simultaneously, withdraw from the present world. This coexistence of familiarity and distance, of observational likeliness and dreamlike suspension, is the space where these works welcome the viewer. 

Eyelids, Towards Evening is curated by Eugenio Re Rebaudengo, and opens on 3 November 2022.

Victor Man’s nocturnal paintings will be on view in Notte Oscura, the eighth exhibitionary installment of ‘Conversation Piece’, an annual cycle of exhibitions curated by Marcello Smarelli that features artists who engage with Rome. This group exhibition investigates different ways of conceiving the night. Victor Man’s paintings depict subjects – often figures or still lifes – under a cover of darkness, leading viewers into a timeless and mysterious world that merges the mundane and fantastic.
