Signed by the artists.
Last June the trio worked in our spaces together with 56Fili, producing a series of new works marked by their characteristic rough and instinctive style.
CANEMORTO reduced the screen printing technique to its essentials, by stripping it of every intermediate step: a 100 x 140 cm frame, six hands painting it simultaneously, four minutes to spare before the colors dry, and a single impression. The compositional idea of each work, initially agreed upon by the trio, was left free to evolve and change at the frantic pace of the brushstrokes, with the impossibility of fully predicting the final, unique, and irreplicable result.
This process generated a series of monotypes that, in both sign and subject, embody the essence of CANEMORTO’s pictorial research.
“If I paint like a barbarian, it is because we live in a barbaric age.”
