About Aurelio Villanova
The extraction of Po Aurelio Villanova I discovered in a painting titled "Ship", which probably depicts a glimpse dell'Alzaia Naviglio Pavese ", near the dock in Milan. With those bright colors that illuminate the water and sky, a concept far from dull and foggy weather in Milan, but optimistically represented by this painting or other like: "Alley 'soap', always on the Naviglio in Milan and" Old Square "of Bergamo. Nobody in the world was represented, in this climate of joy of color, a glimpse of Milan. My friend has Monteverdi knew right when he says that he does not lack for reasons ebbs Impressionists, contained within a lyrical inspiration. The painting by Aurelio Villanova is a slow path towards the identity of drawing and painting, in other words towards a painting in which shapes are drawn directly from the color on the canvas, to obtain higher vibrations of light and atmosphere. In essence this is a maturation achieved through practice and experience. Works such as "Watermelon", "Carnations and roses", "Composition", "Flower Pot" or "Poppies and Violets", make us discover how the inspiration of this artist comes to be "clear as spring water" and some of its atmosphere, with very personal graduation of colors, accents buy large sentimental elegy where the predominant effect. The encounter with the real sun and clear skies help Villanova to uncover a world final, that need for a new palette dedicated to the brighter ones, where painting design absorbs and transforms into a kaleidoscope of colors. The works of Aurelius Villanova has been done with a painting now fast, now made of sedimentation of the pulp color, now brushstrokes to Bonnard, but always full of light. The undoubted ease of hand of this artist is able to soak up the poetry and spontaneity. Villanova, a painter of race, color used to give form to his compositions, the faces seem almost abstract, with no intention of composition. This is particularly pressing in Villanova spectacle of color, to achieve which is also willing to push the scans of his representation to the edges of abstraction, as in "Composition" or "Carnations and roses", but also the spectacle of forms, to achieve which is not afraid to deform and move expressionistically images, pictorial allusion to where the line drawing is absorbed by the rhythmic brushstrokes of color, without falling in the informal pure. Aurelio Villanova remains the "painter of color and optimism", a character who has managed to shape his life as a man with the characteristics of the pure artist. Eraldo Of Life (Art Critic) Figurative painter, inspired by nature in all its meanings, Aurelio Villanova has never tried the adventures of a cutting edge which escapes as free from complications intellectual disposition led him rather to be reflected in a poem of pure extraction Valley. It is not in him a reflux of reasons impressionists and expressionists, but contained within the limits of a lyrical inspiration. He approached the object of his emotion with extreme simplicity and purity of mind, that his works always offer a fresh example of spontaneity. Prof. Mario Monteverdi
