N – nothing, nothing, number, nature, naked, name, narration, in physics it indicates the unit of the measure “yes” of force.
The exhibition entitled Towards N is mainly composed by works made with museum paper and placed in plexiglass cases (or on aluminum surfaces), which in some cases, in addition to performing a conservative function, are an integral part of the work. They were made specifically for the exhibition and represent his most recent production.
With this exhibition the artist develops the characteristic themes of his work: the exaltation of the light factor in the pictorial material obtained through the stratification of planes that have a dual function. They are painted surfaces and screens that welcome the reverberation of painting, a reverberation that can be interpreted as a desire for painting to expand into the environment until it saturates it with its living presence.
The novelty of these works compared to the previous ones which alluded more to spatial or architectural dimensions, lies in the evocation of natural environments obtained with variously composed fragments where the border between “natural landscape” and “soul landscape” is never definitive and certain. The fragment is not a dramatic element that alludes to a mythical integrity preceding everything, but it is an element in itself. This fragment has to be put in relation with others to compose an allegorical whole that continually touches the narrative, both in literary terms and as narration of the art itself.
