2020 Duomo 60x180cm olio su tela

Monday 29th June 2020 – Cathedral

This Monday’s Duomo starts from a provocation that we faced in a dinner few days ago: Can art be a way of experiencing work? To implement – not only represent – a new way of working? Can it still “employ” the society? These questions are taken from an intervention by Francesco Fornasieri that you can read here.

Sometimes it happens to paint with my eyes closed, because I am so inside what I am painting that I close my eyes and throw the liquid color into the canvas, and that is a very nice feeling! It happened in this Milan Cathedral, in the lower part, where I let the color in the fast gestures of yellow, ocher and blue transform into a form that starts from a randomness but which in reality proves to be very vital […]
