"Capricorno" is a painting born by chance: the idea that started it all refers to the peachorangish acrylic shades combining the background, of which just few traces have actually been left, as visible on the upper side of the artwork. Afterwards, a couple of misc-azure and horizontal white hints oil dabbing have been processed right to the afore-mentioned acrylic background:
these spots were carefully addressed to stretch the entire work view to the
outside. It's been kind of a long work to paint (aside for the background processes, I
employed four months), large consisting in overlapping small - yet generally geometricshaped - tiles. The center shows azure shades that draw the attention to the capricorn shape itself,
extending over the outer sides through the long ears, that also fall downwards just like
tentacles, almost soft pendants, in their total yellow tones. The hard work of opposition (yet
highlighting) to the azures, is assigned to a sinuous outline mainly made of orange tones; finally, on both lateral sides, there are different pink falls, this time opposing to the inner composition's softness, but let it stand out at the same time:
just like giving birth to an opticaleffect focused on bringing back the visual attention to the center of the whole composition.
"Capricorno", just like I said before, has born by chance and it also matches my zodiac sign.Anyway, title always plays the game of pretexting, since I even think to be rather skeptical to believe in fate, then in stars;
I tried to experience some daily reasoned improvisation though,
made of shades obstructions in addition to compositional balances, that actually gave me the chance to put myself constantly on a brand new creative process path.
