Florence. Clet Abraham condemned to pay 10 thousand euros for having placed a statue

26 May 2017
A few years ago Clet Abraham interviews in Florence city he loves so much. We talked for a long time of his common man statue, who placed it in total security and at his expense on the bridge "Ponte alle Grazie". I do not know if Clet's action would please everyone (many yes, though), it was certainly...Read all

I'm standing on looking at fake stones stuck to a ceiling, in a corner hanging scraping colored fabrics from a wall. There are people who come in and out of a dark pavilion where they glimpse blinding glows of laser lights that light up photographs. I have already seen so much paper clenched in a corner,...Read all

21 March 2017
Pose for painters and draftsmen is something else: be models for painters does not provide for discounts, there are no filters and post-production, the exposure time is very long. A "shock therapy" that I recommend to those who tend to not like each other, not to accept their bodies. One of the most...Read all

Poesia per Tonino Guerra

17 March 2017
Nel tuo respiro in nuvole psichedeliche si palesavano alberi, ed erano concreti, con fiorellini teneri di bianco panna, forse un po’ azzurri, però di un azzurro appena accennato, oppure di un rosa evanescente come pastelli di bambini. Come si può esprimere la tenerezza di un fiore, credo portandolo con...Read all

- Looking at your works, the thing that strikes me most deeply, your mastery of drawing, where the contours can vanish but remains a solid construction to define the forms, the figures are as if suspended between light and shadows. I find beautiful the ability to create strong suggestions, always leaving...Read all

A recent paper of Gian Ruggero Manzoni, painter, art theorist

12 February 2017
An important French art critic, who lived in the eighteenth century and named Étienne La Font de Saint-Yenne, in 1754, in one of his writings, became a rhetorical question, which, in my opinion, still contains within itself what is the deep sense of art and art history. The question was: "Do not you ...Read all

"But "crisis" does not necessarily have this meaning. It does not necessarily imply a rush towards the escalation of control. May instead disclose the moment of choice, that wonderful time when people suddenly realize the cages in which you are locked up and the possibility of living differently. And...Read all

Painting is a hollow shaft.

02 February 2017
Painting is a hollow shaft. It 'a tightrope between the earth and the sky. It 'a moment of hypnotic trance. In prehistoric times, the shaman and the creative were the same person. Clairvoyance is a journey into no man's land. Painting is a wager, an act of growth because of awareness. There are white...Read all

What is art for you? The art is not just immediate emotional creativity, but it is the rational process that leads to create an object or a project that is an artist's story. Seneca said that there is nothing casual in the art. I share this thought. Although to many it may seem strange because they...Read all
