Andrea Mariconti’s artistic talent grows out of a silent and attentive capacity of observing nature and humanity. Developing the old technique of painting with poor materials, Mariconti finds his way of expression by using personal melanges – carefully studied and experimented over the years – of oil painting, ashes, earth and plants extracts. His paintings tend to dichromatism and his sapient use of chiaroscuro adds the perfect layer of shadows making the atmosphere mysterious and fascinating. His use of dropping, folding and mixing materials with such different textures, give to his work a tridimensional effect and simultaneously a surrealist feeling like if you would be trying to reconstruct a an old memory in details, without achieving its totality. His brush stroke as much as the textures of his self-made colors give to his paintings a sort of impressionist value, confirmed by the certainty of recognizable subjects. Main theme behind his works is the fragility of both landscapes and humanity. Being in permanent transformation, by stocking them on canvas Mariconti gives to those instants, to those blinks of reality, a fix point, projecting them to immortality.
