  • About the work

Technique: art print on canvas;

Year: about 2012;

Original artwork by the artist Alessandro D'Aquila, from the 'Paesaggi sintetici' series, started in 2012, still in progress. It depicts an oversimplified landscape, with few colours and geometric shapes. The Braille alphabet, always featured by the artist in every work, leaves the viewer in a state of bewilderment, making him experience what the majority of visually impaired people experience in their daily life. Signed on the back.


About the Artists

, Italy

Alessandro D'Aquila's works revolve around contemporary culture, its popular images and how they are received or not received: their comunicability is the result of the recipient's perception, like D'Aquila highlights in his artworks, using the Braille alphabet, a language that is unintelligible for the majority of the public. By choosing this specific alphabet, the artist aims to provoke a sense of bewilderment in the average viewer, forcing them to experience what visually impaired people experience on a daily basis. With the 'Polaroid Sintetiche' series, D'Aquila takes the photographs himself and retouches them with oil and acrylic paint, simplifyng the subjects, doing the same work that our mind does with our memories, letting them fade away or mixing them with one another.Among his other series there are 'Ritratti senza volto', in which D'Aquila extrapolates his subjects from cinema, tv shows and pop culture, simplifying them to the extreme, making them recognizable thanks to their most distinctive features; 'Loghi comuni', a series dedicates to those brands that represent our collective imagination; 'Paesaggi sintetici', which presents diffrent types of oversimplified landscapes. 

"I'd like to make visual art suitable not for those who see but for those who watch."
