2003 Reflections on Giorgio MorandiBottles
Residing in Bologna, I observed quietly the artworks of Giorgio Morandi, bottles being the ones I drew attention. Almost always the same colors, almost always the same bottles or vases, almost always the same format. In my studies, I could see how those bottles, postwar vibrated in his hieratic attitude, like those pasted gray encouraged some drama represented.
Those objects for me could not be called “Nature morte”, these models represent drama or eroticism, isolation, some life and absence of the man walking nearby.
Of those reflections, a small stream, which has formed a creative flow emerged; bottles for me increased vibration, the object comes to life, the model has a fact and is not inert.
Perhaps for someone, I compose from antagonism to Morandi. And what else gives!
The instant breakfast in the sun, wines or a few cans of paint come alive.
