NEW MEMORIES 2016: WE DARE ROCK BAND + MY ABSTRACT PHOTOS OF DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY

*

This is a new version of “Memories”videoclip with WeDare song and my visual art (Lacer/actions Project and research). WE DARE rock band choose my artworks for their new video titled “MEMORIES”. And when I heard it I thought to one of my abstract photos series. All the images of the videoclip are not paintings, but real scenes I saw on a big publicity billboard. They were the final result of an incredibile (and amazing) natural decomposition which opened my view on colourful horizons, visions and universes… All that was not created by the brush of a painter, but simply by the case… 

I think my artwoks go very well with “Memories” track composed and performed by WE DARE.

ABOUT WE DARE ROCK BAND

 ABOUT MY LACER/ACTIONS PROJECT

“LaceR/Actions” is 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 (during my research around the world  I  collected so far about 80.000 images). Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matter decomposition.

My recent “The Ghost Bus” project was carried out with Bartons Plc and Act Group, Beeston, Nottingham, UK (January-March 2015) with a great short films premiere on March 27, at Bartons Plc, Chilwell-Nottingham. An Italian premiere will take place in Tuscany (Monte Amiata, Piancastagnaio, Siena) on October 24-25. My most recent solo show (“Colors of an Apocalypse 2015”) was on Lake Como, Lenno, Italy, on  July3-4-5, 2015, in a special and spectacular location: the St. John Baptistery (XI Century), a beautiful example of Romanesque art. Mitrani Yarden (fashion designer and artist) and me we have created “Hopes” project, a new experience in art, fashion, design and music.

MEMORIES : THE LYRICS

(Andrea “Ralph” Richini, Danio Minici, Roberto Porpora)

 

Time change our lives

Our own fate has took its flight

I need to stop somewhere,

I’m too tired to roam

Reasons beyond these lies

 

Don’t follow me please

do not cross the line

my eyes want to see the whole color of light

but all inside my mind.

 

 

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

All these are memories.

 

So I couldn’t change my life

regret hurts me like a knife 

I struggled and fought to get outside this world

but still I was pulled inside

 

Don’t follow me please

it’s all in my mind

my ached heart still need an injection of life

it’s not my time to die

  

Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me) 

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

 

You know what, in the end

I find a safe place

but still I crawl, I reel

in all these memories

which never leave me free.

 

I tried to escape myself

from all these miseries

but still the weight of being

will not deny my past,

it’s still inside of me.

 

The light is coming out

the time has come, I’m sure.

But maybe I said this too many times…

 Dreaming is not to stay (I cannot feel pain, you cannot run away)

Can’t lose a single day (it tries to drown me, but drowns before me)

I need to find my way (I cannot feel pain, I cannot feel pain)

FROM CERAMICS TO CERAMIC: MY ABSTRACT WORK (ON A DISFIGURED FOUNTAIN) REPRODUCED BY TALENTED ARTIST LAURA MARMAI

A few months 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. I also produced a video, as you may see…

But the story now continues… Talented artist Laura Marmai, who lives in Salerno and saw me while I was taking pictures around the disfigured fountain, was really impressed but what i created. So, I suggested her to choose one of my abstract photos and to paint it on a real ceramic. She accepted the challenge and she created a wonderful and artistic piece of real ceramics, reproducing on it details and particulars of one of my photos. This a photogallery about the great ceramic created by Laura basing on my artwork! Brava Laura!!!

*
Qualche mese 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, come presentato dal video in questa stessa pagina. Pure immagini astratte…non dipinti o composizioni digitali. Ma ora la storia continua.

La valente artista Laura Marmai, residente a Salerno, che aveva assistito alle mie riprese fotografiche alla vecchia fontana incrostata di Vietri, ha accettato la sfida di selezionare una delle mie foto astratte e di dipingerne i particolari su una vera ceramica. Ecco dunque il risultato. Ringrazio Laura per questa bellissima creazione, che va ad aggiungersi alla straordinaria serie dei suoi lavori, tutti molto belli, che rivitalizzano l’antica espressione della ceramica artistica.
