2021 Attracchi 160x50cm olio su tela

Monday 23rd August 2021 – Moorings

In these two moorings all the tension is in the middle part, in the strong movements of the ropes and in the chromatic contrasts between the wood of the poles and the water. From the center, the tension descends downward, sinking downward as if it is an abyss. It is a dramatic picture, and the presence of the colour purple goes well with this feeling.
