SOMEWHERE IN THE COSMOS… SCENE FROM A CRACKS MAGNIFICATION (IT’S NOT A PAINTING OR A DIGITAL WORK)

Someone told me that CRACKS – and all my LACER/ACTIONS researches about torn and decomposed publicity posters – are a sort of  “Wabi-sabi” expression (it’s the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay…) 

In fact, “Wabi-sabi” celebrates cracks and crevices and all what is marking time, weather, ages and so on… Architect Tadao Ando says: “Wabi-sabi reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, rust, and frayed edges, and the march of time they represent.” (Read more atWhat Is Wabi-Sabi)

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I’ve been also researching on metal and plastic surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. This is the wonderful world of Cracks… My eyes and cameras discovered in cracks magnifications amazings textures.  Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture, which is not a painting, but a real scene from this real world… I took in Bergeggi (Liguria, Italy) two months ago…
