About The Artwork

Working around an idea of surface and the process of its transformation, using a few essential materials to force certain formal limits and make it take on a rusty and two-dimensional consistency. The series of bas-reliefs "SINGOL BLA OXIDE" is part of a series of works characterized by homogeneity of themes and physical similarity in an orderly and continuous succession of elements of the same genre. After the reproduction phase of the individual letters (B - L - A ) rigorously worked "by hand" and the application of a very thin layer of pure metal powder that covers the letters on the outside (corten steel, bronze, brass, copper), the bas-relief takes on concreteness by materializing, through the passivation phase, in a multitude of shades and chromatic variations typical of rusty concretions, transforming and making the single BLA writing oxidised, aged, worn and worn. Title: SINGLE BLA OXIDE Bronze 01 Technique: Okumè plywood, epoxy resin, pure metal powder (Corten steel, bronze, brass, copper), oxidation obtained using natural passivating products. Bas-relief size: 30 x 86 x 2 cm, Dimension with frame: cm. 46 x 101 x 4.5 Year: 2024 Weight: 3 kg

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.
