  • About the work

Resin spheres on wood.

The resin works that are part of the OloLux cycle are the current result of research and experimentation on light, which Portella has been carrying out for a decade.

Giuseppe Portella carried out a formal renewal. He looked for and found a space and light which cut the darkness. This space and this light support a more refined aesthetic emotion which emerges among the bright shades of the resins. These works can be estimated only by the secret of the universe. Portella’s arrival is intriguing, his pictorial growth led him simultaneously to magnify the material of his work: the resin. Portella has knowledge and a creative use of this resin which made him one of the most skilful artist in Italy whom has experimented with it, he is able to let the utmost colour’s alchemies rise. It is from such material that works with great refinement are born through which unique and smooth lights are shown that remove the ancient aura of tradition.

Portella’s research and experimentation today is reaching a grade of such a high technical perfection finding its own form of expression in the creation of surfaces made of light and transparency as a piece of his own soul crystallized. Portella’s work magnifies, in a completely personal way, a creativity that springs from an individual womb of unspoken energies, his ancient knowledge of making, his homo faber ability, is anchored on the artefact tangible beauty, to accept the pictorial surface persistence renewed thanks to pigment, colours and resins, but still at a high aesthetic thickness.
