Artwork Description:

Hannes Hofstetter,NORD SUD , 2001 3 x 230 x 165 cm, mixed media painting can be transported 6 x 115 cm x 165 cm Francesco de Bartolomeis inArte Oggi NORD-SUD. In 1997 I was asked to write about Hannes Hofstetter for an exhibition. An opportunity to discover a great artist who, in 1996, left Berlin, chooses to live with Paola in Envie, in the hilly area of the Saluzzo, in nature. The work of art and everyday life, direct contact with a life that the city denies but also very familiar with information technology. Hannes studied with Beuys but nothing resembles him. He is a painter who is interested in today s problems with realism and passion. For example, the North-South 2001 triptych230x495cmrealizes what each artist aspires to, the metaphor of life in which personal events are wandering, changing places and points of view, experiencing situations of nature and the facts of different and opposing men. In the work spacelarge, small, internal, externaland timethe present is charged with the past and projected into the futurehave strength and lightness, a widespread vitality that opens many paths to the obstinacy of knowing and deepening, of search for guidelines even in what is impossible to explain. The three sections of the work have no linear succession and do not limit certain physical places but give the meaning of the contradictions of life. Circularity, internal-external passages, transformations, elevation but also insecure rooting in the earth. In the partitions horizontal and vertical rhythmssplendor of golddepth of the blue and blacks that are joined by clear areas with rare appearances of reds. The lower part of the triptych has no homogeneity it is land, rooted but also tangled with rubbish and wrecks, asperities and cracksthe high parts are a counterpoint to their diversity. In the sector of left, solarity and diffused light, warm, openings towards the MediterraneanSouth seas, expanses of fields, profiles of mountains, living geometries that continue with many variations in the central sector. The right wing sectorNorthsuggests, as an intense experience, the interior of Gothic cathedrals but also sacred woods of Germanic mythology, places of recollection and revelation between shapes that rise in the light. Variety of things of nature and of man, coexistence of opposites, reversible passages from elevation to rooting, from openings of light to barking metaphor of life.
