Realistic Images

Permanent Exhibition – Italy

SIZE OF FRAMED WORKS:

CM 70X50

“LaceR/Actions”is a multidisciplinary project and research about urban signs and landscapes, especially concerning the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed papers from billboards and advertisings diplays. I have so far collected more than 40.000 images.

Impressed by camera and transferred on canvases, lithography prints,  textiles (as pure silk), scanned in a videoclip, or re-built in collages, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations.

I think in the lacerated advertisings – and in paper mutation – 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.

TESTING MATERIALS: A COAT OF RESIN ON A LITHO PRINT REPRODUCING A MACRO PHOTO

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI - LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT -

 I love to mash-up different techniques and materials. I think contamination is the base of my “Lacer/actions Project” (my realistic images are reproduced on canvases, textiles, lithographs, a.s.o.). I like to test, as I did on a lithographs prints series from my collection. I have spread a coat of resin on the whole paper surface. Due to a surprising chemical reaction, the colors absorbed the resin in a different way giving to paper a different intensity in brilliancy… Yes, paper is incredible. And its decomposition too…

P.S. Pay attention to resin… It’s not so easy to handle.

“9/11,REMEMBERING A TRAGEDY THROUGH ART”: DR.SRINI PILLAY WRITES ON “THE HUFFINGTON POST” ABOUT ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI’S WORK

122 - BR

Roberto Alborghetti, “Nine Eleven, New York 2001”, Abstract Photo on Canvas, Lacer/actions Project

Dr. Srini Pillay – Harvard psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, clinician and executive coach – wrote an interesting article on the popular  “The Huffington Post” about my artwork dedicated to 9/11. Here’s the link:       

“The Huffington Post” – la testata di news piu’ cliccata del mondo (ha superato perfino il “New York Times”) – pubblica un approfondito articolo sul mio artwork “Nine Eleven, New York 2001”, dedicato al ricordo dei quasi 3.000 caduti nell’attacco terroristico dell’11 settembre 2001. L’articolo è scritto dal Dr. Srini Pillay, uno dei piu’ noti ed autorevoli psichiatri americani, docente clinico ad Harvard, ricercatore, executive couch, speaker motivazionale, autore di best sellers sul rapporto tra cervello e comportamento umano e appunto columnist del celebre “Huffpo”.

Srini Pillay ha visto su web i miei artworks “Lacer/azioni” e ne è rimasto molto colpito, soprattutto dall’immagine che ho dedicato alla strage del WTC. Qui sotto il link all’articolo dell’Huffington Post.

La tela Nine Eleven sarà esposta a Londra a metà ottobre nell’ambito della prestigiosa “Parallax AF”, presso “La Galleria”, alla Royal Opera Arcade, sul centralissimo Pall Mall.
