Splashes in Matter

 

indigo noir.

liquid fire

meets cubed ice.

spirit water always becoming.

clearly formed,

quickly diluted.

views of

every thought we’ve never seen

but can remember

briefly converge before

evaporation.

 

transparent continents

of interactions

reveal multi-

layered, thin veneers.

all of them thought real

(all believed)

now merging

in

rivulets of

shimmery vibration,

dissolved.

Is this me?

where’s the matter?

define life’s meaning.

 

The floating head grins.

oh, yes,

a round on him

(poured from  his own

dusty bottle, this time).

a new glass,

fresh ice.

begin.

finding splashes in matter.

“AND THE SKY BROKE DOWN IN TEARS”: ABSTRACT IMAGES ABOUT CRACKS AND SCRATCHES ON A DISFIGURED TRAFFIC SIGN

© Roberto Alborghetti – LaceR/Actions, 2014

You certainly know that these pictures aren’t paintings (oils, acrylics, watercolors or digital works), but just natural, random and not manipulated images of the amazing imperfection of the real world we see around us.They come from a disfigured traffic sign I saw some weeks  ago in the beautiful Menaggio on Lake Como.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of decomposed posters, cracks, scratches and urban/street signs. 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, as you may see in this gallery showing some works from the collection of about 50.000 images captured so far by Roberto Alborghetti during his research all around the world.

PLAYING WITH COLORS / MY WORKS RE-VIEWED BY CHILDREN (3-5 YEARS OLD) DURING A FUNNY WORKSHOP

This videoclip shows some images about the creative experience which involved children  (3-5 years old) of nursery school “Cavagnis” based in Zogno, Italy. They participated to an incredible and funny workshop dedicated to a free interpretation of four artworks by Roberto Alborghetti, the realistic, natural and random  images related to the decomposition of torn publicity posters, cracks, scratches and urban signs.

MY “SHOOTING STAR” WORK SUPPORTING “AN EXHIBITION FOR A RESTORATION” PROJECT IN NORCIA (PERUGIA-UMBRIA, ITALY)

" A FALLING STAR" BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI, COLLAGE, CM 53X35

“SHOOTING STAR”

by Roberto Alborghetti

COLLAGE OF WASTE-PAPER PIECES FROM TORN

AND DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS

2012, CM.53X35

This work is a collage created with 300 waste-paper pieces from torn and decomposed publicity posters.

It was selected and donated to the 40th edition of “An exhibition for a restoration” project which intends to protect and to preserve a great piece of art by Jacopo Siculo (XVI Century), “Incoronazione della Vergine”, in the beautiful Norcia (Perugia, Italy).  

My “Shooting Star” work will be on show in Norcia (Umbria, Italy) from July 12, 2014 to September 7, 2014,  at Complesso monumentale San Francesco. The event is promoted by Comitato “Una mostra, Un restauro”.

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. Roberto has already collected, around the world, more than 50.000 images.

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-build on collages, or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.

“A jar of rainwater” is part of my collaboration with musician, producer and poet Joshua Sellers, from West Memphis (Arkansas, USA). Fusing Joshua ‘s words with my images – realistic pics of torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and urban signs – , we created a series of haiga: a combination of  haiku and visual art.

Haiga is a style of Japanese painting based on the aesthetics of haikai, from which haiku poetry derives, which often accompanied such poems in a single piece. Like the poetic forms it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that “since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was… a natural activity.”

Just as haiku often internally juxtapose two images, haiga may also contain a juxtaposition between the haiku itself and the art work. The art work does not necessarily directly represent the images presented in the haiku. Stylistically, haiga vary widely based on the preferences and training of the individual painter, but generally show influences of formal Kanō school painting, minimalist Zen painting, and Ōtsu-e, while sharing much of the aesthetic attitudes of the nanga tradition. Some were reproduced as woodblock prints. The subjects painted likewise vary widely, but are generally elements mentioned in the calligraphy, or poetic images which add meaning or depth to that expressed by the poem.
