A SKY PALETTE… IT’S NOT WATER-COLOR OR ACRYLIC, BUT ONLY A DETAIL OF A DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTER IN MILAN

Realistic and not Manipulated Images of Torn and Decomposed Publicity Posters and Urban Signs

These torn posters have somehow melted away into  mysterious alchemical compounds pointing the way to eternity.  It’s like they are whispering: “This way true happiness lies…”

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research  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 camera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), scanned in a videoclip, or re-built in collages, the details of torn and decomposed publicity 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.
