2019 Parking 24x32cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 31st August 2020 – Lines

I took the photo you see below the painting while I was cycling in Milan and I was surprised by observing some workers who were preparing the lines to paint the road signs. As you can see, there are all the lines drawn with scotch tape and I thought back to the series of works I did on the Alfa Romeo parking lots.

The appointment is at 6 pm at the Museum of Palazzo Marliani Cicogna in Busto Arsizio (Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II). The artwork I show for this Monday is the symbolic image of this exhibition, chosen together with the curator Giuseppe Frangi because it seemed the most suitable for communicative power and meaning. I recently returned to Arese to review the place where this work […]
