The personal approach of Dario Imbò's tactile art is both traditional and innovative, interpreted with a dynamic and creative expressionism. His hands work with several materials, each time with the intention of creating something artistic, both with the weaving technique and with that of material juxtaposition, which characterizes his style. These textural surfaces in geometric combinations fill the surfaces of his works with an evolving form and research the core artistic values experimented by the artist.
Hand-dyed fabrics, following different paths, mix similar or contrasting colors and subtle fabric twists moving like a strict silhouette accompanying junctions which rise suddenly to design the abstract research made by the artist. Hand-dyed fabrics, following different paths, mix similar or contrasting colors and subtle fabric twists moving the strict silhouette accompanying junctions which rise suddenly to embody Imbò’s abstract research. The final piece is defined as a real textile wall that best expresses his craftsmanship with fine and colorful stripes creating opposed imitations of harmony and storm themes. His work is defined by a rough aspect, just as the materials themselves, perhaps poor in appearance, but definitely rich in meaning. The polymaterialism in his work becomes a strong combination that takes possession of a new contemporary language, giving to the tactile technique a renewed creativity in a direct relationship with color and material and with the ancient tradition of fabric.
