All The Madmen
By Gio Pagani
It comes from the abstraction of the European avant-garde, its formal research, the myth of modernity and the need to express oneself in a way that is sometimes completely unexpected and shocking. The artworks echo propositions on the image level, which is interpreted as a space for simplified geometric compositions. Some of the layered, tone-on-tone designs are deeply inspired by the work of Paul Klee or in dialogue with the spirit of Vladimir Tatlin and Piet Mondrian. The five protagonists of this track quickly lose any illusionistic quality, transforming into ‘spatial modulations’; the shapes begin to take on the appearance of flattened boxes on a 2D surface, embellished by patterns.
