WAVES OF COLORS, WAVES ON (TORN) PAPERS (VIDEO)

Video created for Lacer/actions project and research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, industrial and urban decompositions. They’re not paintings, but…simple macro photos of the reality around us: colors and shapes, glue and dust on the lacerated papers of torn publicity posters.

LACER/ACTIONS IN GIF / 8 PICTURES FROM THE WORLD AROUND US

lacer-actions gif

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens, like these 8 pictures in gif (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions.

Walking through the streets of the cities and finding out billboards on which some decomposed and ripped publicity posters open you amazing visions… In this small photo-gallery I present 3 of the pictures I gathered two weeks ago in Bari (Puglia, Italy). They are some black and white abstracts, produced by the glue tracks left on the billboard  when they took away an old and ripped publicity poster…

As I usually like to say, they’re not paintings, they’re not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case. They’re abstract and macro photos I usually take while I’m walking along the streets: during my trips I  collected so far more than 80.000 images. I’m always amazed and admired how the reality goes beyond every imagination… The important is to be in the right moment and in the right place, having my photocamera ready…

FROM NATURAL CRACKS TO FABRIC PRINTS…

“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens. Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decomposition.

One of my shows was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy). In the last years I worked 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.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out in Nottingham, UK. I produced two short films which were premiered on March 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc, Chilwell. An Italian premiere took place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25, 2015. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art.

During the last year, with fashion designer and artist Mitrani Yarden (HotCouture is his trademark) we have developed ideas for the fashion world, as the Volcano Dress (e-book and short film about an high-fashion outfit) and innovative fabric prints series.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY # 2 / FOUR DIFFERENT PERCEPTION LEVELS OF THE REAL WORLD

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outdoor advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). I also love to work on natural cracks, crevices and scratches on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings marking the passage of times…

We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection. My eyes and cameras through cracks magnifications are discovering impressive textures in what we usually consider waste and disfigured materials (as you may see in this photogallery). My Cracks – as well as all the other 60.000 images I gathered so far for my project – are just and only realistic, natural, random and not enhanced pics of the real world around us.

CRACKS CHROMOTHERAPY # 2 / 4 LEVELS OF PERCEPTION

*

“Cracks” is part of my “Lacer/actions” art project and research. All my pictures (about 55.000 so far) aren’t paintings, but realistic, natural, random and not manipulated or enhanced images, as you see in this “Cracks Chromotherapy # 2” videoclip; Soundtrack: “Making Memories” by Steve Fawcett.

My project is gathering documentary evidence about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters (on outdoor  advertisings), crevices and chaps on metal, plastic or stony surfaces, or metal and plastic platings, industrial tokens. These scenes from the real world are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles. So, I invite you to enter the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered “an active aesthetical appreciation” of what we call the disturbing elements of imperfection and waste materials.
