Published by Charta
Bloodless bodies of creatures emerging from the water, melancholy nudes portrayed from above, industrial archaeologies resembling residues or carcasses of animals--these are the themes that Alessandro Papetti, one of the leading proponents of new figuration in Italy, has concentrated on in recent years. His thick, mellow brushstrokes explore an empty, suspended world of silence with great realism and the constant motif of a lunar light that illuminates the compositions with unexpected gleams, revealing fragility.
