With this sculpture we want to focus on atmospheric pollution. Plexiglass was used to make the air transparent. With lashes of color the invisible toxic nanoparticles, the so-called air killers, are metaphorically broken. The bees, the first indicator of pollution, were collected dead in fields treated by toxic pesticides and inserted into the sculpture to give them a “new life”. The point on which the artist focuses is the weight of the invisible and how much it actually escapes us; it is not an abstract invisible, but a concrete, material invisible that, escaping our sight, we do not perceive and underestimate, yet it exists. It is an invisible who has a weight, but who, above all, has the strength to penetrate us imperceptibly, and worse, to kill us slowly …with every breath.
Wall Street 05 2021
Acrylic, Resin on Canvas
Artwork on supported wooden frame. Artwork framed.
Lashes of color are violently inflicted on towers of coins that represent Wall Street, the symbol of the world economy, which has brutalized humanity, transfiguring man into non-man. The adoration of economic power reigns as the only law and the only divinity and is capable of annihilating all the others, increasingly distancing man from other men. The artist's intent is to denounce a speculative economy and make it more humanized.

Stefano Di Loreto
Stefano Di Loreto began painting figurative paintings since when he was young, to later discover a particular fascination with a type of subtle and conceptual art. His searching path led him to approach the Italian Pop Art and New Realism, for which he admired the freedom of expression and the use of color.
Over the time, Stefano di Loreto developed a very personal painting style. If at first sight his art joins Conceptual Art, it differs in the original will to deconstruct the concepts through the use of color, becoming a new artistic expression, in which the artist assigns the name of "Conceptual Deconstruction" and which opens January 9, 2016 on the occasion of the exhibition at the Museo Michetti (MuMi) of Francavilla al Mare (IT).
Di Loreto's art represents current issues such as Globalization, Economics, Nutrition, Communication, Time, the Humanitas and other.
