Works by Nicolò Baraggioli

Nicolò Baraggioli is an abstract artist, born in 1985 in Genoa, Italy. Moved to the U.K. in 2013, he lives and works in London. 

"My work is characterized by its aspiration  towards emotional detachment, towards antisubjectivity and coldness, proposing a peculiar emphasis on the object and its physicality.
The artistic product is identified with its structure, with elements such as surfaces, materials, shapes, thickness, angles, chromaticism: the result is object.
What I try to achieve is a result of non-expressive art, which is imposed through optical-perceptual messages originating from the dialogue between forms, light and space. The physical object becomes a preponderant element of the work of art: the support, the material, the color, take the place of representation.
My work is based almost exclusively on the use of solid and essential geometric shapes, on modules that can be repeated and combined in almost infinite realization solutions, often small and medium-sized structures that enhance the estranging effect between reality in which the work is placed and the work itself. However, there are some works that instead seek the opposite effect, namely: the most sculptural installations, on the other hand, tend to occupy the surrounding environment more and more clearly, dialoguing and involving the exhibition space, which becomes an active component of my artistic work.
All the works are characterized by their accentuated executive rigor, are composed with a few geometrically defined elements, adopting an essential lexicon, are presented as a variation of primary elements, pure, simple forms, with a chromatism that often coincides with that of the materials.
In Zen thought it is said: "if something bores you after two minutes, try it for four. If you still get bored, try for eight, sixteen, thirty-two, and then again. You could probably find out that it's not boring but interesting. "
Repetition is also a key aspect of the aesthetics of the production of my work."
