SIGNS FROM NOWHERE: WELCOME TO CITIES OF GHOSTS…

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Some years ago someone told me that my “Lacer/actions” artworks – images of torn poster and urban signs – are a sort of evolutional forms by which some unidentified and indefinite entities try to communicate with us… At first I smiled hearing this comment.

Now – after having “captured” strange and unusual images in thousands – I’m not so worried thinking about the idea that those abstruse and abstract signs taken from cities walls could be some intriguing dimension of perception (or a new form of communication from Nowhere…)

So, let ‘s have a look (without prejudices or mental barriers) to this slideshow… They are realistic images, not manipulated or digitally enhanced. I captured them on the cities walls around the world. And welcome to my Cities of Signs: Cities of Ghosts, Cities of Lacer/actions…

P.S. During this week I’ll be on travel through Holland and Italy. So I take a break in bloggin’, but not in capturing… ghosts traces on the cities walls.

SNOW LANDSCAPE? NO, IT’S JUST ONE OF MY “LACER/ACTIONS”…

  

 

Black and White. Two colors. One scene. The image recalls me a snow-covered volcanic land. Or some traces of snow. Maybe snow on the clods? Probably. I may say for sure that it’s an (absolutely random) image I’ve taken (as the others 35.000) during my wandering research about what I like to call “The Torn (publi)City”… I catched it in Lecco, on Como Lake. Now it’s a canvas… I like, in this image, the way in which black and white colors are mixed. Some parts seem in relief, as a 3D picture. But it’s only an illusion, as the sensation to be in front of a snow-covered volcanic landscape seen from a plane… It’s only an abstract composition. It’s just one of my “Lacer/actions”

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…

WATCH THE CLIP, WITH MACKINTOSH BRAUN SOUNDTRACK:

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.
