Lorenzo Marini


Lorenzo Marini is an Italian artist who lives and works between Milan, Los Angeles and New York. He uses the contradiction of color, balancing it with the impact, silence and elegance of white. He develops his poetry under the great master Emilio Vedova, after studying architecture at the University of Venice. The concept of space and the search for the ideal visual fact become the paradigm of his painting. In this semantic relocation process Marini proceeds by layers dividing the canvas into portions; subtracting from each the original message leaving the surface structure, the lattice. Even the color disappears leaving as the undisputed star as white, or the silence on canvas. The result is very impressive: almost monochrome grids with strong textural components, with a subtle balance between abstract and rationalistic.
