About The Artwork

This painting is the direct result of my Lockdown for Covid 19. I was impractically confined to the house without having the possibility of stocking up on materials and canvases to be able to work during this period in the impossibility of going to my laboratory where I usually work. So having a portion of jute canvas, fabrics and yarns and gold leaf for decorations available for the cotton fabric, I assembled the fabrics and created an abstraction as my habit by spreading and pulling the oil colors with wooden frames. . After creating the abstraction, the latter was enriched with gold leaf. So inspired by abstraction I inserted a figure of a woman painted in oil. The use of the fabric stimulated me to insert yarns, fabrics, threads on the canvas sewn on the canvas and left free to move. Furthermore, the gold portions stimulated in me the creation of small mythological figures inserted in the composition (people, warriors, prophets, horses). the fabric is inserted on a wooden strip equipped with hooks to be fixed to the wall. Very material. spectacular with a side light that makes gold reflect. Star woman is inserted in a fantastic abstraction that symbolizes the temporal journey between humanity's past and future.

Michele Rizzi is an Italian artist born in Turin in 1971 (he currently lives near Turin Italy) best known for sculptures "Condensation and dispersion of matter." Sculptures made with steel, wire and iron mesh, which enhance the feeling of discontinuity of matter (solids and voids). If the sculpture of the past was essentially remove excess material, this kind of sculpture is to score the material at the points established and well-measured quantity. Regarding the forms, are prevalent human figures, organic and vegetal figures (real, abstract or fantasy). who suffer from the most different influences ranging from the ancient Minoan art and African (athletic and Thin figures) to the sculptures of the last century by A. Giacometti to the latest figures pseudo alien or humanity of the future, up to the recent "Manga "Japanese. The incompleteness and deficiencies are the added value of these jobs from which flows the perpetual fascination of the ruins and archaeological remains. The artist likes to think of the sculptures as in archaeological findings received from the distant futureand therefore at the same time have a double aesthetic value: archaic and futuristic . The heroism and courage of facing life or just living is a recurring theme in these works as well as the simple contemplation, inordinate and disproportionate individual (humanity) in the presence of the universe, time and space. He recently started a cycle of sculptures with the main material being transparent resin and vegetables and materials present in nature. Painting by Michele Rizzi follows a seemingly distinct from the sculptures but for neighboring intent and in some cases coinciding with the work in three dimensions. His painting came to degrees from a figurative painting (fantastic landscapes future) to a more abstract representation, up to an abstraction that is influenced by the painting of Gerhard Richter (physical and mechanical work on the color pulled with wooden frames) from which it deviates by rarefaction and for the insertion of figures that give more or less distinct size, depth and meaning abstraction transforming it into abstract landscape. Both (sculpture and painting by Michele Rizzi) pursue the future in the knowledge that the future is essential from the past. A sort of hole in space-time (black hole) that enables the past and the future to come in contact generating overlapping and hybridization and an infinity of shades and consequent emotions.
