A secret that
has driven all archaeologists crazy, for centuries, where Nefertiti's treasure
is hidden, in what pyramid, where to look for it, how to find it, how beautiful
it is ... or ... someone knows all these answers?!?
picture comes out as 17th in a series of paintings called TREDISMO, a technique
that I have experimented and innovated, inspired by paintings by artists that
use a lot of relief. At the end of 2018 I started experimenting with strong
reliefs on hard panel, and in the middle of the following year I made the first
three-dimensional painting on canvas. The first painting was made with a sponge
cube. Treated sponge is ideal for canvas effect, giving soft consistency and
texture to the piece. While looking at the cube I was thinking of a name, and
the word "cubism" came to mind - but I certainly couldn't use this
name. Cubist paintings are works in two dimensions, while this painting of mine
developed in three dimensions: here was born the name TREDISMO.
