WHEN NATURAL DECOMPOSITION AND LIMESTONE “PAINT” CERAMICS AS EXTRAORDINARY MASTERPIECES OF CONTEMPORARY ART / THE PHOTOGALLERY

A few weeks ago in Vietri, the Amalfi Coast town (Italy) famous for its wonderful ceramics, my eyes have been attracted by an unusual and spectacular corrosion. The surface of a fountain, not far from the beach, showed an exceptional cracking. The blue ceramic, of which the structure was made, had undergone a process of deterioration caused by weather, moisture, salt and limestone. So, for my “Lacer/actions” project I produced several shots at the decomposed parts of the ceramic fountain that now, even through its alteration of colors and materials, does not hide colors and designs of great impact . And this video shows them… Pure random abstract from reality. Warning: THEY ‘RE NOT PAINTINGS OR DIGITALLY MADE WORKS!!!

Qualche settimana fa a Vietri, località della Costiera amalfitana famosa per le sue ceramiche,lo sguardo è caduto su una inusuale e spettacolare corrosione. La superficie di una fontana poco distante dalla spiaggia presentava delle eccezionali screpolature decomposte. La ceramica azzurra, di cui la struttura era fatta, aveva subito un processo di deterioramento causato dal tempo, dall’umidità, dalla salsedine e dal calcare.

Ho prodotto diversi scatti, presso le parti decomposte della fontana in ceramica che ora, pur attraverso la sua alterazione di colori e materiali, non nasconde tinte e disegni di grande impatto. E questo video lo dimostra… Pure immagini astratte.  Attenzione!!! NON SONO DIPINTI O COMPOSIZIONI DIGITALI!!!

I heard a sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of a great thunder.

E udì dal cielo un suono forte, come il fragore dell’oceano e come il rombo del tuono.
