About The Artwork

Light and darkness exhorts to ask questions; the oxymoron between what was and what is not anymore, encourages to seek answers. Eternal dualism between finite and infinite, between hope and disappointment, between memory and oblivion seem to flow on the surface of paintings as the mythological Mnemosyne and Lethe. Black and white, positive and negative, seem to struggle to overwhelm each other, without ever redeem itself. It is a binary system, a sort of battle fought by the desire of resilience and inexorability of oblivion. "Black Hole" paintings talks about memory lost: I make a conceptual intervention erasing my own memory, erasing with black and white colors my old paintings. In this case the painting was dated 2012 (see the last image) that i erased, turning it in a "Black Hole" in 2016. For further informations, please, contact me or Saatchi Art Team. I am flexible with the price, so if you are interested, make an offer.

I’m Ruben Patella, italian artist. The focus of my artistic works is memory, a system of references, signs, tracks, which are the key component of the self-definition as human being. The sign, the symbol, the work of art are the way to leave something of themselves to the future, the trace of our presence, the sign that shows that we existed, in one place, in a time, although undefined. My artworks can be found in private collections and galleries in Italy, Austria, USA, Russia, Canada and Taiwan.
