UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS? NO, IT’S IMAGE #3 FROM “THE SPRING WINGS” LACER/ACTIONS SERIES

 

 Till next sunday April 1, I’m glad to share a special preview of a seven images series that I titled “The Spring Wings”. The whole series will be followed and concluded by a videoclip in which I’ll show a “live view” of that incredibile billboard from which I’ve made my artworks.

I think it’s one of the most astonishing torn posters I ever seen so far during my long research about ripped ads and urban signs. It was located in Lecco, a beautiful town on Como Lake (Italy). The incredible actions and re-actions made by time, weather and environmental conditions (rain, light, smog, humidity…) produced a capturing and harmonious mash-up of colors and shapes. I really had the luck to be in the right time in the right place… (in the following days the billboard was covered with new publicity posters).

The huge and whole torn paper advertising showed me pre-existing images that were crushed and de-structured in thousands of particles which presented fascinating colored streams and waves dancing on a completely white background. The various sections of the torn poster reminded me a sort of suggestion about springtime colors…as you may see also in this image, in which I like the movement of several Unidentified Flying Objects…

ABOUT MY “LACER/ACTIONS ART PROJECT”

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 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). One of my artwork will be kept at the new Contemporary Art Museum will open next September in Marche region (Italy). The next big Lacer/actions Show will take place in the enchanting XIII Century Rocca Aldobrandesca, an incredibile fortress in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from September 27 to November 4, 2012. An “The End of The World” event…

Lacer/actions – Images Of Torn (publi)City

LE JET DE MON SANG CLAIR

(My Clear Blood’s Jet)

 

 

L’effroyable atteint  l’infortune

La souffrance altère toutes les choses

 

J’ai mal

 

Le cœur se déchire

Le jet de mon sang clair

Nourrit le parchemin de ma mission

 

Vibrez

 

Aurons-nous la chance d’éjaculer

Notre libre arbitre

 

Nos choix 

 

Hommes natures  écoutez- moi

 

Dans la couleur projetée

 

Se tient l’anneau  promesse

D’une vie  nouvelle

 

 

Je l’ai peint  avec amour immense de  toute mon âme  au sang  clair

MY ART GALLERY? IT’S ALONG AMSTERDAM STREETS

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I been recently in Holland. I travelled along the country, from Brabant region to Amsterdam. I love the dutch landscapes, they’re so relaxing… I saw obviously  torn posters and other urban signs that I like to catch and to document for my “Lacer/actions” art project. It happened in Eindhoven, Utrecht and Leiden. And also along Amsterdam streets and canals I captured lot of images, absolutely realistic, as all the others 35.000 pics I collected so far.

I think the beautiful dutch city reveals itself also through ripped poster and ads you may see in hidden corners. You have only to keep up your attention and perception… I gathered interesting and capturing imageries that are really part of colors, shapes and moods of the so called “Venice of Northern Europe”.

So, here some of my artworks comin’ from my personal open air art gallery that I discovered and managed along Amsterdam streets. With a special series of other 6 images I’ve also created a videoclip – “Light (de)signs” – with the fascinating sound of Jap Jap, an Amsterdam based composer, musician, producer and performer (link below).

FASHION DESIGN PREVIEW 2012 : LIMITED EDITION OF 3 SILK SCARVES CREATED WITH MY TORN POSTERS IMAGES

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

A series of three silk scarves. I’ve created them workin’ on my images of torn posters details (“Lacer/actions”). I accepted the challenge that italian textiles designer Bruno Boggia offered me when I visited his Studio in Como (Italy). Bruno, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia and with the support of his staff, helped me selecting artworks to be converted into silk scarves designs. Bruno Boggia Studio has been working with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…)

Within a few days, the challenge reached the finish line. The images of dirty and ripped papers – left to decompose on city walls or billboards – after being transformed in canvas, litographs and videoclip, have now changed in the elegance, delicacy and sheen of silk scarves. Here some photographs about the three Silk Scarves series created for a Special Limited Edition for my “Lacer/actions” project.

SPECIALE EDIZIONE LIMITATA: LA SERIE DI 3 SCIARPE DI SETA CREATE CON LE IMMAGINI DELLA PUBBLICITA STRAPPATA

Una serie di tre sciarpe di seta. Le ho create lavorando sulle mie “Lacer/azioni”: immagini dei particolari dei manifesti pubblicitari stracciati. Ho così accettato la sfida che mi aveva proposto Bruno Boggia, il noto textiles designer di Como. Bruno Boggia, con la preziosa assistenza della figlia Lucia e con il supporto delle sue collaboratrici, mi ha aiutato nella scelta di alcuni artworks da trasformare in sciarpe di seta. Bruno (www.boggiadisegni.it) da oltre sessant’anni lavora sul textiles design producendo per i più conosciuti stilisti a livello mondiale (qualche nome: Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…) Nel giro di pochi giorni, l’impresa è giunta al traguardo. Le mie immagini sui dettagli della carta – sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata – della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città è ora diventata anche sciarpe di seta. Dopo essere diventate tele, litografie e videoclips, i miei artworks “Lacer/azioni” si sono trasformati nella delicatezza e nell’eleganza di sciarpe di seta. Ecco alcune fotografie della serie di tre sciarpe realizzate in Speciale Edizione Limitata per il mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”.

LONDON, THE RIVER, THE WHEEL AND THE SURPRISING SOUNDTRACK OF A STREET MUSICIAN…

Last October I was in London to participate at Parallax AF Show, at La Galleria (Pall Mall). One night I decided to take a walk along the Golden Jubilee Bridge… The city by night was there, showing all its lights and shadows. I took mobile in my hands and I began to record the beautiful scene…

I didn’t realize that an anonymous street musician – not so distant from me – was playing his guitar (I wonder who he was…) So, a sweet melody was stiked together with my images, as a spontaneous soundtrack.

I posted the clip at my Lacer/azioni Channel, on YouTube. Enjoy it, here’s the link:

COLORS OF FALL, COLORS OF LIFE

  

I’m always wondered and amazed how my “lacer/actions” artworks – images of torn (publi)city – are tuned on seasons. Fall is here and the nature around us dress itself with fantastic colors… So it happens to my artworks too. I was in Como and I had the way to catch some incredible images from ripped posters on the walls… They show colors of Fall. But for me they are colors of Life.
