Francesco De Bartolomeis
In Crosses not only sacral value. Through a wide range of variations, the artist searches for structures, coordinate systems so as to realize symbols of organization of forms in the space-cosmos. Organization but not regularity. Sometimes the elements of the cross shatter or become signs that form intricacies, labyrinths or are tangles of thorns or geometric constructions that mix symmetries and asymmetries, color contrasts and tonal passages. The material among other things, pigments, gold, silver, sand, sawdust, salt.
