Blu 2019

The painting, titled “Blu” is one of the portraits that I made to friends and people that visited my studio, between 2015 and 2018.
In this painting, in particular, I feel that I had fulfilled my intention, which I had been working on for years. My purpose was to make a painting starting from an abstract use of color, to reach a result that I had intuited, glimpsed, but which I was not yet able to achieve until this painting.
My interest in previous years to this portrait was on understanding the texture of color, working on its abstract nature. To make shapes emerge thanks to an intricate molecular combination of color and find grace in the chaos.
At that time I thought that I needed both the microscope and the telescope, it was this looking at the infinitesimally small and infinitesimally large, up to the invisibility, what I needed.
