CANVAS ON A RED WALL: FROM AN ABSTRACT PHOTO TO A COMPLEMENT OF INTERIOR DESIGN

roberto-alborghetti-800x481

“Victims & martyrs. Kefalonia, 1943 – The blood tracks # 1”: abstract photo on canvas + mixed media, 90×57, by Roberto Alborghetti, Lacer/actions. From an image of torn and decomposed publicity posters to an “unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”. This is the magic 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.

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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

Yes, there is an abstract world under our feet … These are some of the images I took walking along the streets of Florence (Italy). They’re macro of a cracked pedestrian crossing. The pictures are part 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. 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. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

MY TOP VIDEO OF 2016 AT YOUTUBE: “THERE IS A CRACK IN EVERYTHING…”

This is my Top Video of 2016: “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”, inspired by the wonderful quote by artist Leonard Cohen, who passed away during 2016. Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions project-research about decomposed publicity posters, natural crevices and scratches, urban and industrial matters… This clip is dedicated to the wonderful world of cracks magnifications. The images are not paintings or digitally made works, but simply abstract photos of the reality around us…
