Lightness understood as an aesthetic and conceptual quality is a recurring theme in contemporary art.
This concept can manifest itself through various techniques, from the use of physically light materials or by creating works that evoke a sense of delicacy and transparency.
Lightness can also be understood as a philosophical or poetic approach, like a breath of wind that caresses our soul. It is our ability to think lightly that raises ideas and concepts with grace and elegance without weighing us down with unnecessary complications and superstructures. By freeing our mind we counteract the gravity and heaviness of the modern world.
Lightness in art conceals a profound wisdom, as the visual perception and emotional sensation that a work transmits forms a thought that knows how to juggle the various complexities of life.
It's like a bird's flight that glides lightly without ever losing sight of the solid ground of concreteness.
We remember ITALO CALVINO in his book "American Lessons" describes lightness as a quality that allows you to "glide over things from above and not have boulders on your heart".

Multidimensional performance

Friday 29 December at 6.30 pm the finissage of Angelo Rossi's personal exhibition "Desideri in Abbondanza".

Experimentation, contamination, multidimensionality. These are the elements that inspire the “Au” performance. Painting, music and poetry intersect and merge into a texture of sound, light, images, words. After having enchanted those present with his works inspired by the nuances of the condition of greed which are part of his broader project "The Ten Worlds in Art", the artist Angelo Rossi agreed to confront and let himself be contaminated by the poetic dimension of Michela Benedetti and the sound of Carmelo Cannarella in a multidimensional experimental performance entitled “Au”. ...

Carmelo Cannarella, in addition to the music and light effects, gave the title to this performance "Au" represents the first and last vowel, a sort of alpha and omega. The poet and actress Michela Benedetti composed and performed a series of poems, inspired by images and sounds. The event is organized by Leonardo Vietri.

DUExCINQUE

shared art studio

DUEXCINQUE, studio d'arte condiviso a Viterbo

On the occasion of the opening of the DUExCINQUE shared art studio in Viterbo, Stefano di Maulo and I exhibited four works each, Stefano created some new paintings created specifically for the event, while I proposed some works that are part of the project

THE IMAGINATION OF OTHERS.

“... A work can be born from an object, a thought, a sound, but another work can also be born from one work. In the general indifference into which we have fallen, the non-deaf voice of someone who offers a different and new interpretation through the recognizable becomes more important and significant than ever. The meaning of Angelo Rossi's work is to undermine the rules of reality, of the authentic, to make us reflect on the possibility that there are multiple readings of anything, that art can be contaminated, interpenetrated, but nothing can coincide perfectly with something else, every time a new connotation is created, a new authenticity.”
