Giuseppe Stefanelli

MaƮtre des anges - 2000
Collage and mixed technique on canvas, cm. 100x120
“Stefanelli’s world asks us to stay silent. The result is a painting that is dominated by the thin gesture, the overlapped layers, the frail nature of the materials as very thin paper, carton, gauze or sand. The reason is the artist’s attention to manual work as well as manipulation of different elements” … ”Stefanelli’s production is part of that esoteric stream of painters that prefer the material play and the use of black, the alchemic colour above all others, to the expression of striking colours.”
Michela San Pietro
