NEW VIDEOCLIP: DRIPPING TIME… (THEY’RE NOT DELIBERATELY CREATED IMAGES)

 

In this new videoclip you may see some abstract photos of Drip Artworks. They’re not paintings, but just random and not manipulated pictures I saw  in Sicily (Isola delle Femmine). They are part of my Lacer/actions Project and Research about decomposition of outdoor publicity, natural cracks and scratches, urban nd industrial matters. Soundtrack by Audiomachine : “Solace” (Out Standing).

Drip painting is a form of abstract art in which paint is dripped or poured onto the canvas. This style of action painting was experimented with in the first half of the twentieth century by such artists as Francis Picabia, André Masson and Max Ernst, who employed drip painting in his works The Bewildered Planet, and Young Man Intrigued by the Flight of a Non-Euclidean Fly (1942).  Ernst used the novel means of painting Lissajous figures by swinging a punctured bucket of paint over a horizontal canvas.

I did it simply… taking pictures to the world around us. In fact, there is in a natural, random and spontaneous dripping left and created by the times, by the passages of time…by the weather…

DRIPPING TECHNIQUES? THEY ARE JUST MY “LACER/ACTIONS”…

 

 

Hundreds of drops, black-white-grey colors, an absolutely random image, as the other 35.000 I took during my research about what I like to call “The Torn (publi)City” (ripped posters and urban signs). This is one of my last 2011 artworks. I had the luck to catch it in Milan. It’s one of a series of 5. You never imagine where I took it from! Someone could define it as an expression of dripping techniques. Someone (again) could tell me that it is so similar to some Jackson Pollock paintings…

I only say that the image is absolutely natural and spontaneous, a realistic shot, caught in Milan by my eyes and camera… One day we should explain how reality – I mean: what we have under our eyes – has affected and ispired contemporary art. Meanwhile, this is just another of my “lacer/actions”. And I love people when they play to recognize in what I do some great artist’s hand…

LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 35.000 images. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), or scanned in a video clip, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations. I think that in the lacerated advertisings 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.

Some “Lacer/Actions” artworks were published in a booklet-portfolio: Pics of torn (publi)city”. In July 2010, thirty thousand people visited my show “The Four Elements of LaceR/Actions” during the three days exhibition at Oriocenter (Milano Bergamo Orio Airport, Italy).Myartworks are also taking part of experiences about sensorial and emotional perceptions (sinestesys) concerning kinesiologic tests. In October 2010 I participated to “Parallax AF” in London (La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade).

 SONO SOLO… LACER/AZIONI

Ecco una delle mie ultime Lacer/azioni del 2011. E’ una immagine che- come le altre 35.000 che ho realizzato nel corso di anni di ricerca – è assolutamente realistica, casuale, spontanea, non manipolata. Qualcuno si divertirà a riconoscere, ad esempio, la tecnica “dripping” usata da grandi artisti quali Jackson Pollock… Dico solo che la mia immagin è catturata dalla realtà, da ciò che abbiamo sotto gli occhi. E penso che la realtà abbia influenzato e ispirato grandemente l’arte contemporanea.
