DONNA CHE GUARDA AL PASSATO
ALFANO – Donna Che Guarda Al Passato
Mixed media on canvas
150 x 200 cm, 2023
This work is part of the series of paintings on canvas “3 Momenti di una Vita Ordinaria” (3 Moments of an Ordinary Life) made by Italian artist Roberto Alfano.
The series consists of 3 moments spread over a standard timeline. The past (“Donna Che Guarda Al Passato”), the present (“Cane Chiuso Dietro Al Cancello”), and the future (“Ragazza che fuma una sigaretta”). Within this tripartite linearity, however, lie stories that open up new narrative dimensions outside of time.
To whom/what does a woman’s memory look toward the past, how does it relate to the present, and what are the projections for the future? Instead, a hieratic dog is as fixed as the present, motionless, inoperative, suspended, like glory, like infants, while the future, like a slow awakening, rests on an artificial cloud puffed by a young woman lost in a bright abyss.
