Modern and contemporary art

Informal photography


The previous exhibition project, called “contemporary realism” was divided into three workshops. The result was enclosed with compositions belonging to an enigmatic dimension of reality which subsequently, with the fourth workshop,{%ALT_TEXT%} became an informal material type, with expressive values ​​corresponding to contemporary art. The visual interest of the photographer has focused on the chromatic residues of old metropolitan graffiti aged with expressive-visual interventions of different themes, bleached and partly canceled with {%ALT_TEXT%}faded, dull, partly discolored colors, to then be covered by other graffiti that the wear of time has again faded, but with the presence of a contemporary material art. Very often there are expressive overlaps with different characteristics in fact even if they involuntarily intersect; graffiti – mainly characterized by writings sometimes circumscribed with the personalization of an original signature, with murals – characterized above all by chromatic interventions with combinations of bright, showy, bright colors and with festive, fantastic, fairytale, humorous themes. Artistic collected highlights the cancellation of any pre-established shape or shape and the liberalization, without a conventional compositional approach, a set of signs, lines, writings and spots of color that intersect without specific compositional boundaries, with an expressive and with a spontaneous gesture. All this succeeds in transporting the visual memory to the masterpieces of informal painting. In fact, technically they are chromatic interventions with signs that do not delineate a border with the remaining chromatic residue, helping to enhance images free to wander in a metropolitan context.

The photographic research

The photographic research of reliefs with material-chromatic forms present in various points of the territory makes clear the visual-museum map of reference for an informal-material iconography. {%ALT_TEXT%}Attention is also attracted to multi-material subjects with particular veins, cracks, lesions, holes, irregular reliefs and inevitably the photographic execution tends to concretize the informal-material value that emerges. The informal-material-photographs have completed a first visual-cycle currently in online contemporary art exhibition of this visual-art-laboratory.
