Description

Line and color become the cornerstones around which his production in recent years revolves: while maintaining a strong visual assonance with the primary structures of Minimal Art, Piacentino's works differ from the works of American artists for their "artisanal" nature, renouncing to use the industrial prefabricated building proposed by colleagues from overseas. In fact, these are lacquered wood structures, often reproduced in similar shapes but made different from each other by the use of color, obtained by drawing on a personal sample of over three hundred color variations. From one shade to another, the chromatic choice connotes the work and makes it a unique piece, insisting on its optical-perceptive value and on the ambiguity between real object and "mental" object. The artist states in an interview in 1972: "I like to invent on the usual things. I made them in inhuman, absurd dimensions; in them there is always a sense of uselessness, decoration and invention [...]. It was a work of softening the form, more typical of the furniture maker than the sculptor ”. The starting point is the frame, an instrument still linked to the pictorial language, which Piacentino isolates as an element as such, creating objects that simultaneously enclose the support and the pictorial surface. "From this naively cultured idea of disassembling the frame - which I enjoyed coloring - I then moved on to an expansion of a part of it into the environment", says the artist. Dark Prussian-Blue Portal IV, which belongs to the works created between 1966 and 1967, presents itself as a hypothetical access door, drawing, measuring and delimiting a portion of the exhibition space with which it interacts. Abstract forms that look at concrete objects, "furniture" devoid of functionality (as Tommaso Trini defines them), Piacentino's works propose a synthesis of architecture, sculpture, painting, looking at design but preserving a self-referential nature that remains firm on the line, the color, the size, the positioning. Reconciling the geometric essentiality and the materiality of the object, the artist works on the gap between the idea of form and its materialization in space, keeping high the tension between the intuition of the image and its physicality, as well as in subsequent series of Vehicles, purely ideal and therefore dysfunctional means of transport, created starting from 1969.
