Andrea Bruschi, STENDARDI (BANNERS)
Andrea Bruschi’s huge banners are a reinterpretation of a traditional element, to which the artist wanted to give universal and imperishable value. He chose, therefore, to eliminate all reference to reality, soaking the canvas only in colour, and to bring out abstract forms, without any figuration. Only the interaction between the light conditions and the surrounding landscape created reflections on the fabric in which the visitor could read the reality in a mirror image. Bruschi’s pure chromatism was thus lit up at times thanks to the special technique used to create his paintings, in which the application of oil on canvas is followed by the definition of colour accents with transparent resin.
