  • About the work

Technique: high density polyethylene;

Albanian artist, long resident in Parma, Artan (Berat, 1970) sensitive to matter, an abstract and aseptic personality. The metal he molds into rigid or soft shapes, shiny or satin, gives life to a dialogue between reflected light and material: rhythmic surfaces, geometric, parallel shimmering keyboards that are composed in a silent vertical sonata. In other works, with graphite, he reproposes an almost traditional surface: light signs, dense traces, rhythmic gestures. Here too, any reference to something human, organic, is completely sublimated in an ethereal, ineffable dance. Then color returns in some monochrome surfaces: an implicit homage to the pure surfaces of Yves Klein and Mark Rothko, but here concentrated and relaxed in a homogeneity, if possible, even more rarefied: beyond nature, beyond man, beyond time. A presence, a symbol of a reality purified from every possible transformation and disintegration.


About the Artists

1970 Berat, Albania

Albanian artist, long resident in Parma, Artan (Berat, 1970) sensitive to matter, an abstract and aseptic personality. The metal he molds into rigid or soft shapes, shiny or satin, gives life to a dialogue between reflected light and material: rhythmic surfaces, geometric, parallel shimmering keyboards that are composed in a silent vertical sonata. In other works, with graphite, he reproposes an almost traditional surface: light signs, dense traces, rhythmic gestures. Here too, any reference to something human, organic, is completely sublimated in an ethereal, ineffable dance. Then color returns in some monochrome surfaces: an implicit homage to the pure surfaces of Yves Klein and Mark Rothko, but here concentrated and relaxed in a homogeneity, if possible, even more rarefied: beyond nature, beyond man, beyond time. A presence, a symbol of a reality purified from every possible transformation and disintegration. Artan, exploiting an essential reference to classical sculpture, searches for his own sculptural language made of materials and contemporary thought, thus achieving a work in which classical elegance and cold minimalist vigor coexist. Since 2006, in collaboration with the Niccoli Art Gallery, he has been exhibiting at various contemporary art fairs and many of his works have already been placed in important Italian and foreign collections.
