Spray paint, pencil, tape, oil stick and oil on canvas
180 x 200 cm
Such is the experience proposed by Christian Rosa. Employing pencil, spray and oil paint, the physical actions that the artist executes in front of his large canvases create an abstract pictorial universe that allows colour and form to live by their own mystery. Furthermore, as if to enhance the sense of submission of the will in the process of painting, he incorporates mistakes as potential points of departure of further visual configurations. The evolution of his lyrical abstract images is thus determined by chance and an instinctive trust of the energy contained in physical motion and failure. The result is an ensemble of subtle planes and lines sketched in primary colours surrounded by gestural pencil drawn paths that suggest natural forms such as faces, raindrops or body parts. The interaction of these elements with the white background renders a meditative space where calligraphic scrawling is punctuated by tiny furtive fires emitting their incandescence.
