Roderick Camilleri is a practicing artist, art teacher and curator, whose studies span art, art history and philosophy. The exhibition is highlighted by the fact that it will bring together works from two series, diametrically diverse both in technique and in execution, which however recount a parallel line of interpretation. 

Marika Azzopardi, who is curating the exhibition, explained how the theme 'Shadows of Reason' is based on existential reflections, struggles of survival and physical angst. 

“The theme is set against the humans' efforts to confront and fight the extermination of nature, whilst protecting that which has been inherited from the past. Drawing on philosophical inspiration, Camilleri clearly delineates the subconscious and the conscious in meticulously refined monochrome prints which are occasionally punctuated by surprising and refined color tints. This collection, which will also include etchings and oil paintings created via a wide spectrum of processes should ultimately witness the skills of this multi-talented artist, ”said Marika Azzopardi.

The artist is being exclusively sponsored by Island Insurance Brokers', a company whose identity owes a lot to the appreciation and following it has always dedicated to art, particularly to Maltese artists. “This love for art and beauty has been mirrored back onto our company as a quality that defines us. We are therefore delighted to support Roderick Camilleri's exhibition which we believe, will turn out to be an important milestone in Roderick's artistic journey, ”said Lawrence Pavia, Managing Director of Island Insurance Brokers.

The artist's show in Malta comes fresh after his participation in two international exhibitions held during March 2021, namely 'In / Break Transept Exhibition 2021', organized by the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA), University of St. Andrews, Scotland; and 'The Body Language - ITSLIQUID International Art Exhibition' held at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, Venice, Italy.

Camilleri is currently showing in Italy at the 'In Contemporanea Exhibition' which is being held at the Rossocinabro Gallery till the 19th May.  

The two-week exhibition will be open between Monday and Friday from 10.00 to 16.00hrs and on Saturdays between 10.00 and 14.00hrs and will also be accompanied by a beautifully illustrated catalog featuring all the works.
