Monday 30th November 2020 – Duomo

Recently I thought of something that at the beginning of my arrival in Milan I would never have said: some glimpses of buildings are actually starting to enter me, no longer as a hostile presence, but as something strangely positive. The work on the lines in the series on airports, parking lots and stations is certainly helping me to let the buildings enter as dynamic elements, and with a force of color in which they are one with the movement […]

I was moved because, even with the surrounding lights already off, the marble of the white facade of the Duomo gave off a very beautiful, discreet but present light. There I realized that the painting was finished! Another important aspect of the work is the pose of the person with […]
