Lithographies

HALF 

Food becomes concept and metaphor. The apple symbolizes the separation between man and heaven. Half is the status of the "second paradise", taking up the concept used by Michelangelo Pistoletto in the "Reinstated Apple", exhibited in May 2015, in Piazza Duomo in Milan; a dimension in which human race have not attained the balance and harmony but the gap between man and nature is high. Lithographs are paper made, with a process that has used the slabs in zinc-granite. Colors on papers are mixed with foods that have functions of metaphor. The salt of Sicily is the transit of many migrants from Africa, rather than generations that just from Sicily have reached destinations around the world, leaving a land of haunting beauty and often violated. The salt of Himalaya has the ambition instead of a search for spirituality, of verticality and rise, in a land where, the Himalayas, to climb the highest peaks on the planet has a deep sense of mysticism; the coffee plantations of Central America or Africa are the emblem of blacks enslaved and oppression of man by man, that does not stop in front of any ugliness to reach the sur-plus material. Red wine, tea liqueurs symbolize the search for social gathering, exchange of ideas, the overcoming of single and sense of isolation, in meeting spaces and interaction. Half Apple seeks completion; the rift is a manifest search of filling and striving for exceeding the limit, exploring unknown and going over boundaries.

Technique used for the realization of the lithographies

The drawings and paintings were made by hand molds in zinc plate granite.
The lithographs from 1/99 to 99/99 come from a process that starts from monochrome up to the next step of 6 plates, with subsequent color.
Some tests then were made separately with different sequences, such as those using the magenta and yellow.

Frames

The first lithography of the series has a frame in Plexiglas 80cmx80cm, with on the top an orange rope, shaping an eight, twisted to a bollard of a sailboat. Meaning of the frame is the human journey toward infinity. This work has been exhibited at the Biennale of contemporary art in Milan, in Tadini palace, from September 5th to October 1st, 2015.
