This painting belongs to a small series of 5 pieces entitled "Il Sole è cieco", i.e. "The Sun is blind". As can be seen in this small piece, the two characters are holding hands, one in front of the other, against a rather dark background. No visible face, just two heads that seem to be connected to each other by a sheet of stone that suggests that love is blind and constitutes a link that is as vital as it is indestructible, especially when walking in the night ("notte" in Italian) of uncertainty.

The title in Italian is in homage to the writer Curzio Malaparte who wrote "Il Sole è cieco".

This painting is a unique piece made in mixed media on canvas. It combines photography, digital composition and acrylic painting, with many squares made in golden relief on the surface of the canvas. The painting is framed in black

For about ten years now, I have been creating paintographies. As its name suggests, a paintography is a mixture of painting and photography.

From photography, I keep the initial shot, an essential and unavoidable basis for the work to come. I also retain, despite all the successive manipulations carried out afterwards on the computer, the precision, finesse and plastic quality that certainly distinguish it from painting other than hyper-realistic. However, a paintography is not a photograph, it is a plastic construction that raises doubts in the eyes, that raises the question of the nature of the image that is offered to the eyes of the spectators. What part of the work was captured by the objective, what part recreated by the software work, what part brought by the acrylic glazes?

Layers, layers, stacks: despite its extreme readability, a paintography is a complex construction, based on a succession of screens. The fabric or skin never appears naked, they are always covered by a material that is as much a screen as it is a body with them. This matter is itself obscured by squares that seem either to detach from it or to deepen within it; by evoking the pixels at the base of any digital image, these squares remind us that this matter is a decoy, that it is virtual. And yet, in the works in mixed technique, it is precisely these squares that appear in relief on the surface of the canvas, in a strange transparent materiality...
