Water is a source of great
inspiration to make unusual surrealistic and metaphysical atmospheres,
permeated with a sense of quiet and solitude, which lead to an inner introspection.
This type of subject also poses a continuous technical challenge, not only for
a realistic and convincing representation of the figures immersed in water, but also for the rendering
of the movement, transparencies, reflections, chromatic variations and
distortions of the reproduced figures The aim was
freedom, of separation
from the constraints we
forced to suffer. The medium was chosen to make the
reflections, transparencies and its movement
of the figure and the water itself.
"Terdich's painting rises to the rank of masterpiece in the context of hyperrealism contextualizing each of his works among the best creative expressions in this field. What characterizes and differentiates every work by Paolo Terdich is the ability not to limit himself to the excellent technical ability, the painter enters in every brushstroke all the tension necessary to make us go beyond the visible and to arrive in the world of emotions, a unique and extraordinary experience”. (A. Moioli)
