Renilde Hammacher-van den Brande, Art works, International modern art in the industrial working environment, an experiment over more than thirty years, Amsterdam 1992, p. 81, illustrated in colour.
Overall excellent near mint condition.
Very minor paint cracks in the white to the lower right edge. A minor scratch in the u.r. corner (approx. 5 cm.). This work of monumental proportion is in very good and ready to display condition.
The artist (b. 1961) lives and works in Naples. His research starts from the recovery of the models and family memories that extend to deeper research on the recovery of unconscious collective memory. Further in his career, he loses the focus on the object ending up with an “invisible shape and an empty content,” as the artist stated. What characterizes his works, later on, is the obsessive repetition of a tiny pictogram representing a warrior, defined by the artist as “unlimited writing”, as it covers the limited space of the canvas. He defines himself “a writer of a single word”, as the symbol of the warrior doesn’t bring to another symbol but repeats itself in its semantic self-referentiality.
