Ciredz

Roberto Ciredz was born in 1981 on the southeast coast of Sardinia, where nature is strong and almost brutal, and which requires one’s full surrender in order not to suffer from its strength. Yellow, green and blue dominates the island, where winds blow violently, molding shapes and mixing tones. The graphic design of forms and chromatic progressions has thus become a constant in the artist’s work. In time, Ciredz felt the need to develop an active relationship with his land, fascinated by its uninhabited spaces, fragments of the desolate landscape where men’s traces tend to disappear, overwhelmed by the ever-persistent nature. Hence his choice to paint small abstract interventions on uninhabited ruins in the countryside, which become “volumes” in the artist’s intimate dialogue with space. As Ciredz says: I love to think that those actions will be seen only by very few people. Crucial to his activity is his move to Bologna, where he attends the Academy of Fine Arts and specializes in Graphic Arts. For the first time, he finds himself in permanent contact with an industrialized city. The regular presence of cement replaces his familiar rural elements, which survive only in hidden parts of the city. For Ciredz mural surfaces become a place for a shared and non-exclusive painting dialogue. The artist now expresses himself in public spaces, creating large-scale sections of nature on concrete sections. With his paintings he creates a symbolic relationship between the aesthetic components of the works and the surroundings in which they are placed; the same applies to his sculptures through his specific choice and combination of materials.

In 2017, on the occasion of the exhibition “Residui”, Ciredz began working on aesthetic research then translated into Vedute Matematiche (Mathematical views), a body of works made of pencil on paper, through which the artist deepens the investigation about the complex relationship that exists between the human being and the rules of nature, using the language of the latter: mathematics.

This new series of limited edition screenprints is the natural extension of the same research. The artist’s aim is to obtain a pictorial result while using the rules of geometry. Thin lines of different colors overlap and merge with each other, creating shades of color that help us perceive an image that arouses in the observer a feeling of visual completeness as when the light becomes dim at sunrise and sunset.
