Description

Piero Dorazio is considered as a complete original and consistent figure in the Italian art world and one of the top representatives of international Op art. The three works here on show, Blue Call, Listening and Evergreen 2, are among the most representative examples of his Textures from the early 1960s: dense grids of colour which, transformed into light filters, create elaborate optical effects. The surface becomes a plane of chromatic activation thanks to the overlapping of an intertwining of crossed lines – irregular and undefined – on a base given to glazes, in each painting, working with different tones of color. Dorazio’s painting style does not come to life as a composition made up of marks but, as in the case of Castellani, as a structure whose points have neither a succession in time, nor spatial hierarchy. The painting does not have a direction, no up, nor down, it does not have a profile, it is potentially infinite. Dorazio creates a “timeless” weaving, motionless yet dynamic. Movement is given through light, which is irradiated from the canvas itself. Dorazio’s art in the 1960s is especially characterized by the bursting in of colour onto the canvas, a characteristic which the artist will take with him for the rest of his later production. Thus, Dorazio experiments with the combination of various colours and studies the effect which the composition and decomposition of colour gives to the painting, depending on the morphology of the brushstroke movements or flexuosity or linearity of the lines. The main accusation handed to his paintings in the last few years is that of “decorativism” - and sure enough discrimination often lies in the subjective perception of the work and in the quality of execution.
