The shiny surface reflects the real space lived by the observer, overlapping the contingent reality to the work transparencies driving to a floating and overlapping effect.

Translucency emphasizes a runnig after of delocalized different and divergent shapes and colors, absorbing the surrounding reality and reflecting it in addition to its own.

These works, created in the darkroom, using chemicals on paper and emulsified polyesters, are composed of a superposition of clearly defined and signical brush strokes, to strokes that are fuzzy, spongy and smudgy, with condensation of colour which is at times coagulated, at others fluid, liquid, giving the impression of wetting one’s fingers. Alternating between clarity and evanescence, between past and present, overlapping various perspective planes rendered in two dimensions, “Four Seasons” pursues the need to go back to an original form of expression, that of a painting devoid of didactic and descriptive superstructures.

There are 4 seasons – there is the season of ideas, enthusiasm, visions and insights; the season of planning, analysis, courage and expectations; the season of work,  creation, concreteness and surprise; the season of contemplation, rest, sedimentation, awareness,regeneration and connection to a new beginning – even if they are often confused or experienced simultaneously in a single fragment of time.

 

La superficie lucida riflette lo spazio reale dell’osservatore, accavallando la realtà contingente alle trasparenze dell’opera in un effetto cangiante di sovrapposizioni fluttuanti.

La traslucenza enfatizza un gioco di forme e colori delocalizzati, assorbendo la realtà circostante e riflettendola sommata alla propria.

Questi lavori realizzati in camera oscura con l’ausilio di sostanze chimiche su carte e poliesteri emulsionati, sono composti da una sovrapposizione di pennellate nette, definite, segniche a altre sfuocate, spugnose, macchiose, con condense di colore, a volte coagulato, a volte fluido, liquido, dove si ha l’impressione di bagnarsi le dita. Un’ alternarsi tra nettezza e evanescenza, tra presente e passato, sovrapposizione di vari piani prospettici in una dimensione bidimensionale.

Esiste la stagione delle idee, dell’entusiasmo, delle visioni e intuizioni; quella della progettazione, dell’analisi, del coraggio e delle aspettative; quella del lavoro, della realizzazione, della concretezza, della sorpresa; e quella della contemplazione, del riposo, della sedimentazione, della consapevolezza, rigenerazione e collegamento con un nuovo inizio, anche se spesso vengono confuse o vissute contemporaneamente in un unico frammento di tempo.
