PHOTOGALLERY: MY NEW COLLAGE IS SERVED FROM A SPECIAL TABLE (AND IT’S MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER)

 

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : “The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)”. It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words… So I created a videoclip I posted on YouTube:

Videoclip: The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)”

 

About “Lacer/Actions” project…

LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban and industrial signs (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 50.000 images). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition.

One of my most recent shows (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last two years I was on these projects:  “Contemplations and Lacer/actions” (album, videoclip, installations, inspired by Thomas of Bergamo Scripts, 1563-1631), “Atelier of Colors and Emotions” (a project which involved autistic kids), “Lacer/actions on Aluminium” (11 installations for Fai Private Collection, Italy). My works are part of Contemporary Art Collection (Mercatello sul Metauro, Marche, Italy) and participating to “An Exhibition, a Restoration” in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12 to September 7, 2014.

Now I’m working on “The Ghost Bus” project, in collaboration with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK; all on board from January 2015…

THE SPIRIT OF THE TIMES: A SET OF SIX COCA-COLA VINTAGE ART POSTERS MADE BY FAMOUS ILLUSTRATORS

 

 

Yes, I like publicity posters. They are one of the subjects of my visual research (Lacer/actions) about torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. But I also like advertisings in general… Some weeks ago I found in my attic an interesting set of six vintage rare Coca-Cola posters. They laid aside in an old wardrobe… They reproduce beautiful vintage art created by famous artists. I think that the series was printed in 80’s reproducing original works by N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Ella Dolbar and Massengale. They are in a good condition. Some pieces of true popular art…       

Throughout its history, The Coca-Cola Company has captured the spirit of the times through its advertising art. From its first promotional calendars produced in the 1890s, the Company linked itself to the popular designs and lifestyles of the era the art represents. The Coca-Cola Company used the work of the top artists of the day, including the leading artists of America’s Golden Age of Illustration. The famous illustrators produced paintings for The Coca-Cola Company from the turn of the century into the 1960s, when their art form was replaced by photography in the Company’s advertising.

Much of the work of artists working on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company is beautifully displayed in a book, “Coca-Cola Girls: An Advertising Art History by Chris H. Beyer” (Collectors Press, Inc.). The earliest use of an artist’s signature by The Coca-Cola Company was on the work of Hamilton King, who illustrated the beautiful “Coca-Cola girls” for calendars from 1910 to 1913. His work also appears on serving trays.

Over the next quarter century, the Company used a wide variety of illustrators, some of whom signed their works. But most did not. The anonymous craftsmen produced lavish illustrations with deep colors that graced calendars and other promotional pieces. In the mid 1920s, The Coca-Cola Company began working with a young illustrator who would become synonymous with both Coca-Cola and Santa Claus. His name was Haddon H. Sundblom. Other famous illustrators who created works for Coca-Cola included: Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945), Gil Elvgren (1914-1980), Fredrick Mizen (1888-1964), Frederic Stanley (1892-1967) and Commissioned Folk Art.
