About The Artwork

TYPE DRAWER series 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 artistic representation, as the universal idiom of visual communication : the graphic sign Type evokes the immediate visual link between the object in its materiality, drawer and relief shape of movable characters (graphic sign engraved on a wooden parallelepiped) and its sculptural representation. The letters give a peculiar physiognomy to the work that assumes its characteristic alphanumeric code through the use of type characters of the same series with similar size and shape which alternate and follow one another, in an absolutely rational order, in perfect compositional balance. The constant that distinguishes the series of works called "TYPE DRAWER" stems from a dual narrative concept linked both to the use of the shapes of the letters of an alphabet in its characteristic variations of character; lowercase, uppercase, italic / italic (TYPE) that for the abstract use of the term "drawer" refers to the container that accommodates, preserves and preserves the movable characters in order and in perfect sequence. Title: TYPE DRAWER Technique: Diplast synthetic plaster, Mdf, acrylic colors, beech wood Bas-relief size: cm. 44 x 30 x 1.5 Drawer size: cm. 49 x 41 x 4 Year: 2018 Weight kg 5,5 Serie TYPE DRAWER Il metodo “Gutemberg - simbolo universale e primordiale della comunicazione di massa non solo nella divulgazione della cultura, ma anche nella formazione sociale e civile dei popoli e nel progresso stesso della comunicazione - viene contestualizzato ed utilizzato nella rappresentazione artistica, come idioma universale della comunicazione visiva: il segno grafico Type evoca il legame visivo immediato tra l’oggetto nella sua materialità, cassetto e forma a rilievo dei caratteri mobili (segno grafico inciso su un parallelepipedo di legno) e la sua rappresentazione scultorea. Le lettere danno una peculiare fisionomia all’opera che assume il suo caratteristico codice alfanumerico attraverso l’utilizzo di caratteri type della stessa serie con dimensione e forma simili i quali si alternano e si succedono, in un ordine assolutamente razionale, in perfetto equilibrio compositivo. La costante che contraddistingue la serie di opere denominata “TYPE DRAWER” nasce da un duplice concetto narrativo legato sia all’utilizzo delle forme delle lettere di un alfabeto nelle sue caratteristiche varianti di carattere; minuscolo, maiuscolo, corsivo/italic (TYPE) che per l’uso astratto del termine “cassetto” riferito al contenitore che accoglie, conserva e custodisce i caratteri mobili in ordine e in perfetta sequenza.

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.
