To the Crows, diptych, 30,5x23 cm each, oil, pastels and graphite on paper, 2020
The diptych To the Crows explores the limits of abstraction combined with a narrative structure, tending more and more to a symbolic and conceptual approach, definitively freeing itself from an erroneous illustrative interpretation. The harsh and psychedelic colors of the composition move in informal pictorial spots that determine the rhythm of the composition. Around and above them acute bramble leaves rise in a bright and iridescent inlay, given by overlapping colored pastels and pure graphite on black paper. The Latin expression of ‘sending someone to crows’ - a sort of curse that evokes the image of a corpse exposed and left to the havoc of the black birds - is reinterpreted with a broader and allusive meaning, without prejudice to an illusory and suffused atmosphere.
