Title:
Do let me feel it (n.563) - the Classic series

Author:
Alessio Mazzarulli

Description:
Do let me feel it (n.563) - the Classic series, 58 x 85 x 2,50 cm, Acrylic painting on shredded paper on canvas (mixed media) The Classic series" are inspired by masterpieces of art history. In particular this artwork is inspired by "Spring maiden" 1884 - Sir Francis Bernard Dicksee (1853-1928). It's a very welcome to the most colourful season. In my last works I'm using my own technique recycling office paper and dayly life paper such as bills, receipts, invoices, financial statements, tax collection folders, business plans, magazines. During the compulsory quarantine due to COVID-19, having finished all the supplies of A4 paper to be recycled, I started shredding all the paper in the house considered waste. Thus the latest works have a greater consistency and materiality due to the presence of less delicate paper than the simple A4 sheet. The wrapping paper present in the products purchased and consumed in daily life, reappears in another form, avoiding landfill: containers of pasta, flour, cans of tuna, toothpaste, drugs, ice cream, advertising flyers...
