Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

I wanted to paint Canio not as Pagliaccio but as Canio himself, as the prologue states. (Si può?... Si può?... Signore! Signori! ... Un nido di memorie.) 'the actors have feelings too, and that the show is about real humans'. Therefore Canio has no makeup and is shown amidst a backdrop of blood red. For he has exacted his crime of passion. On the block of red dances four diamonds, a symbol often used to represent the fool or the clown. As his clothes were made of patches. these diamonds represent the four characters of the play. Each diamond has a dimension divisible by four. There is a similar rhythm throughout the painting.
