ARTWORK IN CONTEST

MIGRAZIONE, 2014

PAINTING - Aluminium plate, acrylic paint
cm 100 x 40 x 1,5

The work of Claudio Bozzaotra ('Migration', 2014) has a double original aspect. On the one hand, the artist alludes to the lightness of the flight, of the start, of that move of the soul which suggests a free escape in the sky of time and history; on the other hand it plays with an old visual artifice, that of Chinese shadows, which are still in the sign of lightness, along with appearance and reality. They are real in their static and alive design and in their rational structure, but they seem illusory in their imaginative projection.
