Mauro Capelli - Rimembranze
This oil painting eloquently expresses Capelli's iconic technique. Representing an Italian country road, in which we can read the sign "ricevitoria" (literally "betting office"), the artist shows, through his substantial and rough paint, the genuineness of the rustic folklore.
Mauro CAPELLI. Refined landscape painter, Capelli formulates an iconic artistic language thanks to portraiture. So, he started his research project about colors expressivity and became a master of colors interactions. In his works, we can easily see how the composition is built on chromatic blocks and how the use of lines is rather secondary. Studying the importance of color value, Capelli speaks through his tactile paint and creates a hybrid between Abstract Expressionism oil painting and figurative Fresco.
