I really dig this Blast Number 4 painting by Italian artist, Federico Cortese. It is oil on paper. It is a shock to my eyes! Its op art that I can get excited about!
He says, Some concentric circles are superimposed over a very simple geometric pattern that resembles a city map, recalling the idea of an explosion. From the intersection of the two overlapped geometries, decorative forms are born, and somehow they dampen that suggestion of violence and destruction. The explosion thus is crystallized, becoming one with the surrounding elements and sharing their fragility.
I love cities. I love maps. Maps, to me, do look sort of like an explosion, but they are so visually pleasing!
Federico is in the Saatchi gallery. He lives and works in Italy. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my special link to purchase.
