MIXED TECHNIQUES ON MASONITE
MASSIMO VITO AVANTAGGIATO
MILAN - ITALY
“MY VISION” is a work that aims at recalling primitiveness as a primary source of inspiration.
The brushstrokes are direct, immediate, straight away, and do not suffer from second thoughts. It seems almost childish work, but it is only in appearance.
The colors are numerous and pile up now through subtle strokes, now through marked strokes: overall this coloristic flow tends to give the idea of a strong dynamism, of a rhythmic impulse, which seems a reflection dictated by the fast times of contemporary society.
In the excited colorism that dominates the work, we note on the left a stylized human figure, almost primitive for its tribal attitudes, which testifies that the essence of man has remained the same despite the passage of time and the rapid transformation of society. A reflection of primitivity in modern society.
The work is completed through a collage work by inserting poor material, such as colored cardboard cutouts.
