About The Artwork

"Hurts", 2021 barbed wire on Fabriano paper Through my artistic research I intend to tackle the study of the intrinsic condition of existence: the mechanicalness and deprivation of man's freedom in relation to his space of existence, his interiority, his being in the world, his total helplessness in the face of to a reality that tends to cancel the subjective presence. The human being, as a potentially conscious being, has within himself the possibility of absolute freedom, physical and spiritual, but this freedom is hindered and violently denied by the mechanical condition of his existence and of his inhabiting the psyche. True free will, therefore, is not the power of choice on the outside, but the possibility of realizing the nosce te ipsum: crumbling day after day, moment after moment, that mass of inner aggregates that nestle in us; the demons of heaviness that prevent us from flying. We might as well get around physical gravity, but what about psychological gravity?

Luca Granato is a visual artist. He lives and works in Calabria, South Italy. He first completed scientific studies, then graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Catanzaro with a specialization in Painting. A multidisciplinary artist, he is interested in visual experimentation and the materialization of language, collaborating with public and private entities, galleries and art foundations. Since 2020 he has been the artistic director of the Trame art studio, a space for research on present phenomena and instances. His research is a study on man and for man. Starting from a reflection on the human condition and the internal dynamics of the space of existence, his works are a matter of meditation on the limit and violence of mechanical states of consciousness. I am a multidisciplinary artist, engaged in visual experimentation and in the manipulation of perception through forms and concepts in space. My work through form and matter is a study on man and for man. Starting from a reflection on the human condition and on the internal dynamics of the space of existence, matter is transcended and translated into another dimension, taking on a new meaning: one wonders what is the limit of living and what the intrinsic contradictions entail to exist. My work moves within the subtle distance between creating the world and experiencing it.
