TESTING MATERIALS: A COAT OF RESIN ON MY REALISTIC LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTS…

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI - LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT -

 I love to mash-up different techniques and materials. I think contamination is the base of my “Lacer/actions Project” (my realistic images are reproduced on canvases, textiles, lithographs, a.s.o.). I like to test, as I did on a lithographs prints series from my collection. I have spread a coat of resin on the whole paper surface. Due to a surprising chemical reaction, the colors absorbed the resin in a different way giving to paper a different intensity in brilliancy… Yes, paper is incredible. And its decomposition too…

P.S. Pay attention to resin… It’s not so easy to handle.

Roberto Alborghetti – Lacer/actions Project

***

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 40.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), scanned in a video clip, or re-built in collages, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think in the lacerated advertisings – and in paper mutation – is recognizable the “unwrapped” city, self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital.
