Sedimentation Tancredi

subtitle

To enter into the mood of “Casa Scatturin/Cagnoli Barcella”

Artwork Description
This “Sedimentation” came about while relating to the Tancredi painting, “Composizione astratta. Soggiorno a Venezia”, oil on faesite, 93.3 x 127.8cm, housed at the Ca’ Pesaro Museum in Venice. To define the project of the work I had done for the “Casa Scatturin” where the painter Tancredi had lived at various times, it was necessary to go and see this painting in the art gallery on more than one occasion in order to relate to his painting, his palette and his mood. I sat in front of this painting for months, taking a colour and stratifying it on my canvas. My “Sedimentation” is the result of these visits and of my encounter with this painting.

Series Description
This series of pictures regards all of those paintings which sprang from an external request. They thus derive from having come into contact with the mood of someone else’s palette and of having displayed the chromatic impressions one layer on top of the other or placed alongside one of my pre-existing paintings. Usually it is a question of having related to another artist’s painting, but what also occasionally happens is that I compare myself with another language, for example a literary one, or that I am inspired by a city. This series of paintings can also spring from a form of commissioning, in other words the work I am weighing myself up against can be determined by someone else.
