Giorgio Bartocci

Divided between urban art and product design, Giorgio Bartocci acts as a semi-aware mouthpiece for the outcomes originated by contemporary society's constant inputs. Always busy in his figurative interplay of the complex urban structures and their social matters, on walls and canvases, Giorgio re-creates a symbolic synthesis of the surreal liquid modernity's habits around us. In his abstract artworks in places - to be decoded - humanoid characters like 'future primitives' float at the mercy of encounters-clashes between stratified scenarios and multifaceted realities. Shades, superimpositions, sub-layers, silhouettes, signs, and signals are never left to chance. That tension the artist shapes is the same tension we all got stuck in; a creative tension which enriches Bartocci's artworks with a very personal iconography, evocative and intimate as a forbidden desire”. Giorgio Bartocci studied graphic planning and visual communication at the I.S.I.A. Institute, in Urbino, he realized many visual-design projects, art shows, and tasks for private authorities as well as for public institutions. Currently, he works and lives in Milan.

This series of 25 limited-edition screen prints, created at Varsi’s workshop in collaboration with 56Fili, is a synthesis of an experimental, improvised production method that breaks down the closure of the format, giving the viewer an active possibility of overcoming and extrapolating the work from its two-dimensional support.

The eye, as an inclusive transmission tool, becomes the predominant sense.

“The aim was to create a material abstraction as a progressive, infinite exploration concept. I want to show the inside of things, to take the observer inside them. To have my work continued abstractly by others, to celebrate a new collective poetics, generative and inclusive, pure and diffuse energy.” Giorgio Bartocci
