Eccentric Sensoriality

Eccentric Sensoriality

Painting, Nude, Oil, 150x58cm


The body has become again the core of the thoughts and images of many. Often they are scraps of paper without any sensoriality. Therefore, what about the body in the current era? Is it spectacular, simulacral, virtual, digital? It depends how it appears and how we perceive it.

I wanted to verify palpability of the “effect of the body” starting from rather afar, for example from Raoul Hausmann. The dadaist and anti-photographer Hausmann (1886-1971) has always had a special relationship with the real and the body. Particularly in his sensorial or “eccentric” view, as he defines it himself: “We see things thanks to the shade that restore their outlines”.

The image that has inspired my pictorial representation is the "Nu de dos sur une plage" a black and white photograph of half of 1920s. Respecting the presence of the body as an autonomous and real "object", I have changed, in the design, the perspective point of view. A doubly "eccentric" and at the same time, ironic rendering that the observer can grasp moving from left to right: the gluteus becomes bigger with no proportion to the rest of the body.

Ciao, essendo una figurativa che ha fatto molta scuola dal vero, mi complimento con te per l'abilità chiaroscurale, la scelta della postura e i colori, solo un consiglio se lo accetti, le mani e i piedi tradiscono ma di certo è un pelo nell'uovo.Bravo!
