“Caligo” Biroscape #230

0

The presence of a mild flow from the south generated by a reinforcement of the African subtropical anticyclone gives rise to “Caligo”, a Ligurian dialect term, which defines a condition that verifies where the sea surface is cold, so as to cool, as much as possible, the low layers of the atmosphere immediately next to the surface of the sea. The sea water on contact with the mild air flowing over the surface evaporates and tends to condense rapidly thus forming tiny droplets of steam; if the air temperature reaches the dew point the fog is formed that is pushed on the coasts by sea breezes.

When I am asked about the subjects I paint, I feel I need to clarify that any image I choose is to convey the representation of the sign that makes up the object. There is not a desire for conceptualization in this, nor an attempt to dissociate from one or more genres, there is a determination in wanting to separate the two readings in a decisive manner, so as to establish a bridge between meaning and signifier, keeping both on completely different levels and at the same time absolutely superimposable.

Quando mi chiedono dei soggetti che dipingo mi sento di dover chiarire che qualsiasi immagine io scelga, è per veicolare la rappresentazione del segno che compone l’oggetto. Non c’è in questo un desiderio di concettualizzazione, né tantomeno un tentativo di smarcamento da uno o più generi, c’è la determinazione nel voler scindere in maniera determinante le due letture, così da stabilire un ponte fra il significato e il significante, mantenendo entrambi su piani completamente diversi e nel contempo assolutamente sovrapponibili.
