Luca Moscariello_Mirabilia, 2018. Varnish and oil on canvas. 150×120 cm

Luca Moscariello after graduating from high school with a specialization in Painting, he graduated at Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. From here, an intense period full of participation in personal and collective exhibitions, both nationally and internationally.

He lives and works in Sala Bolognese (Bologna).

Like Perec, Moscariello wants to dwell on the dimension of time, intended as a fragment during which to catch the signs of a continuously changing reality. That is why he concentrates even on the most irrelevant details and constantly seeks scrupulousness, which emerges from his works. At the same time, there is no ambition to drift into the abyss of ­­­­compositional mannerism. The combination of the objects (heterogeneous at first sight) on the surface of the painting is not inspired by the attention to detail, but the awareness that the visual strength can be found in the surfacing, appearance, disappearance and evanescence.

That is why Moscariello does not separate his clearly figurative works – that have distinguished his work in the Italian artistic panorama so far – from the evidently non figurative ones. I do not deny that my statements may create a somewhat cognitive dissonance in the observers but if we make a little effort, we will easily be able to sense the artist’s necessity to remove those elements of interpretation that are visibly explicit.
