Digital Landscape in Black and White #1

0

Procreate’s Digital Painting. 1284 x 1129 px 300 dpi, January 2019

The landscape is fully realized in the second half of the nineteenth century. The legacy left by painters, for example, like Constable is enormous and it is not easy to paint a landscape without confront with these giants. However I feel the need to bring on the paper or on the tablet screen the suggestions that the spectacle of nature continues to give. Perhaps someone one day surely will know how to date these works of mine from elements that today completely escape me.

Oil on Canvas, 50 x 60 cm, September 2018

When I was commissioned this painting I had in my eyes the volutes of the skies of Normandy and the harrowing sensation of an event that was shaking my city, Genoa. In this cloud there are the events of those days that turn into the will to represent them, in the gestures, in the brush strokes are blurred or decided, but not to transfer the burden of a totalizing experience in the subject. Therefore, the pain or the pleasure remain inside of me and are projected outside, not in the painting, but in the medium yes, to the end, with the need to build an almost mystical practice with the object through I can represent my idea of world.

Quando mi è stato commissionato questo dipinto avevo negli occhi le volute dei cieli di Normandia e la sensazione straziante di un accadimento che stava scuotendo la mia città, Genova. In questa nuvola ci sono gli accadimenti di quei giorni che si tramutano nella volontà di rappresentarli, nei tratti del pennello siano sfumati o decisi, ma non di trasferire nel soggetto il carico di un’esperienza totalizzante. Quindi, il dolore o il piacere rimangono dentro di me e si proiettano al di fuori, non  nel dipinto, ma nel medium si, fino in fondo con la necessita di costruire una pratica quasi mistica con l’oggetto.

This portrait is important because show the peculiarity of the painting that seem out of focus but in real is very focused. It is realized with a different technique from that used by crawling the brush to get a blurred effect. Instead the effect is obtained by many small brush strokes that allow me to get a really disorienting effect for the eyes. It’s a real technical challenge that has a rendering impossible to make with a simple photograph. Click on the image.

The Bet’s video, birth and development of a bet.

0

In this video with some images in a timeline, I show the development that led to the painting.
The work satisfied me both for its construction, and how the various parts i have painted. This picture shows a robin in flight, a walking cat and a woman talking on the phone. Of these three creatures, the only one that we know where it will go is the cat, because it will goes to the woman. The background participates in a fundamental way, creating a livable, accessible space where the three characters can act. But what will happen once the cat will reach the woman? Time is crystallized into an eternal bet. The bet that is the invention of painting where everything is determined by the passage of the time, and the flow of the time has allowed at the painting to take shape. The brushstroke, every single brushstroke, allows a formal reading. We can see his develope, we can see passage of the time and how be can represented it. Through the excuse of the three characters story, the colors are laid on the canvas with the brushstrokes, one after the other, and represent the true work of art, that is, the time spend to paint it, . Painting is painting and it is also the artist, because within it is enclosed its time.

Oil on Canvas 30 x 40 cm, 2017, July.

The portrait is the most difficult between the subjects chosen to paint to the natural, because it is related to the obsession of the likeness or the idea we have of the subject and its implementation on the support.
