Studio di Libro 3 by Oriella Montin

Artwork Description

 

Original title of the artwork: Studio di Libro 3 / Study of Book 3

"With the series of works created between 2018 and 2021, entitled ‘Bread and Books’ I wish to reflect on the need for culture as 'primary nourishment and saving element', which guarantees the spiritual salvation of man!  I started with the work ‘Studio di Libro 1’ in 2018 to get up to date with the 8 certain... All the works have as common denominator the object Book and the association of the latter to the Bread as nourishment of the mind and soul - two primary elements from my point of view. The boards are made of wood and measure cm 50 x 40. The materials used for the real-ization of the works are all recycled materials that have been combined together in a conceptual and aesthetic function during the realization of the paintings. The medical gauze that covers the tables is an element deliberately used for its symbolic meaning linked to care. The gauze that originally is white, here is dyed with coffee to give the picture that monochrome and warm color that refers to the house, the home walls or something naturalistic, archaic, archaeological and minimal. The works could recall the Achromes by Piero Manzoni of the sixties in which he used materials such as sandwiches, to be exact ‘michette’ Milanese, stones and balls of expanded polystyrene. Surely an artist with a free and provocative spirit, precursor of a still current and open language that has left in me a feeling of deep wonder." - Oriella Montin
