About The Artwork

BLABLA / LETTERS series Blabla, (onomatopoeic expression, of international use, to indicate a vain speech or chatter, without construct), a conventional symbol of appearance, external behavior and denial of existence, assumes and interprets the reflected thought of our technological civilization and digital. The series of bas-reliefs "BLABLA LETTERS" is part of a series of works characterized by homogeneity of themes and physical similarity in a chaotic and continuous succession of alphabetical forms without order and by a research on materials and chromatic solutions where the alternation of symbols and colors materialize in infinite variables whose only constant is the presence of the same element steretyped: BLABLA-Lexical decomposition of the futile and the banal Title: BLABLA / Letters Blue + Ocra Technique: Mixed technique Bas-relief size: cm. 43.5 x 33.5 x 1.5 Size with frame: cm. 53 x 43 x 5 Year: 2020 Weight: Kg 3 Serie BLABLA/LETTERS Blabla, (espressione onomatopeica, di uso internazionale, per indicare un discorso o un chiacchiericcio vano, senza costrutto), simbolo convenzionale dell’apparenza, del comportamento esteriore e della negazione dell’esistenza, assume e interpreta il pensiero riflesso della nostra civiltà tecnologica e digitale. La serie di bassorilievi “BLABLA LETTERS” fa parte di una serie di opere caratterizzate da omogeneità di temi e somiglianza fisica in un succedersi caotico e continuo di forme alfabetiche senza ordine e da una ricerca su materiali e soluzioni cromatiche dove l’alternarsi dei simboli e dei colori si materializzano in infinite variabili la cui unica costante è la presenza dello stesso elemento steretipato: BLABLA-Decomposizione lessicale del futile e del banale Titolo: BLABLA/Letters Blue+Ocra Tecnica: Tecnica mista Dimensione bassorilievo: cm. 43,5 x 33,5 x 1,5 Dimensione con cornice: cm. 53 x 43 x 5 Anno: 2020 Peso: Kg 3

He began his training as an advertising graphic taking care of the image of the musical and cultural events of various associations of his city Nuoro. At the same time he began his artistic career experimenting pictorial techniques on alphanumeric typographic language. What interests him are some of the printing methods and in particular the typographic technique of the "relief form composed of movable type" (type), from which it draws inspiration; inspiration that begins to manifest itself in the works presented at the first national exhibition in which it participates, "Artefiera" of 1992 in Florence. His work is also appreciated by critics who recognize the award as the best young person under 25. The remarkable confirmation and the conceptual impact of pictorial representations of the symbols commonly called Type, had, and has, a primary importance in the symbolic research of the creative path elaborated by the artist in the following years. The method "Gutemberg - universal and primordial symbol of mass communication not only in the dissemination of culture, but also in the social and civil formation of peoples and in the progress of communication itself - is contextualized and used in pictorial representation, as a universal idiom of visual communication : the Type graphic sign evokes the immediate visual link between the object in its materiality (graphic sign engraved on a wooden parallelepiped) and its pictorial representation, which becomes the basis of global visual communication. In the work TypeCity, engobed red-clay bas-relief, created in 2003 and presented at the most important ceramics competition in Sardinia, the letters and numbers give a peculiar physiognomy to the work that takes on its characteristic alphanumeric code through the use of multiple characters types of different sizes and shapes which alternate and follow one another, in an absolutely random order, but in perfect compositional balance. Recent example of the use of Type is given by the pictorial series "Letters" started in 2008 with progressive numbering 01-236 and still in progress today. The fundamental step that broadens the cultural and artistic path of Francesco Alpigiano takes place in 1999 with the winning of the sculpture competition organized by the Costantino Nivola Foundation.
