These abstract and macro photos are of “Lacer/actions”, 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 black webs on the asphalt (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.

Black and White. Two colors. One scene. The image recalls me a snow-covered volcanic land. Or some traces of snow. Maybe snow on the clods? Probably. I may say for sure that it’s an (absolutely random) image I’ve taken (as the others 35.000) during my wandering research about what I like to call “The Torn (publi)City”… I catched it in Lecco, on Como Lake. Now it’s a canvas… I like, in this image, the way in which black and white colors are mixed. Some parts seem in relief, as a 3D picture. But it’s only an illusion, as the sensation to be in front of a snow-covered volcanic landscape seen from a plane… It’s only an abstract composition. It’s just one of my “Lacer/actions”…
