2021 Stazione centrale 50x60cm olio su tela

Monday 15th March 2021 – Central Station

In this painting I wanted to portray the Central Station from the top of a bridge, with the overpass bars in the foreground that open onto a broad view of the railway. There is a train stopped at the platform, it is waiting to complete the last stretch to access the station.

The act of painting the Milan Cathedral, especially in the large format like in this 100x180cm canvas, is always a very intense experience, because the rhythm is sometimes really hectic. The strength of the purple color in the lower part makes it all very dramatic. I was surprised by the suspended position of the wires on the left side of the sky: sometimes I too feel myself like I am suspended around the corner, just to see something that strikes […]
