A lot of artists face venice's
foreshortenings. Some artists make classical or poetry or moving landscapes.
Some others change the town with apocalyptical landscapes or are ironic on
current affairs. It is sure that these places are source of inspiration.
It could not be different given
the artistic and architectonic beauties.
The artist of austrian origins
who shows this work on Area Marciana, offers a new intepretation.
The work is result of the original
india ink electronic processing. Work necessay to obtain these graphic effetcs
is hard. The result is disconcerting and evocative.
Venice seems to be wrap into a
grim and gleaming aura that hurts and attracts. The fictional air evolutions
are joined with the water's restless highlights. The negative contrasts of
buildings switch on the architectures as they were futuristic neons.
The sense of movement is eccellent
and balanced and it is in contrast with the structural firmness. The
past becomes future, the past is the future and both of them are joined into
a contemporary that a lot of artists despise. To turn back to the past is
the commont feeling that opposites to the pretensions of current affairs
of many art blazoned and officialized from power with no ties with people.
