Commissioned works for Lotras

LOTRAS is a freight train company based in south Italy and i’ve been asked to produce a series of 12 artworks for them. I’ve been painting over some photos from their archive (mostly shots from Franco Cautillo) and while the original artworks will end up to their main partners and customers, the images will be used for the corporate calendar of next year.
It’s gonna be a super fresh and psychedelic 2020 ;)

“Recipe For A Disaster” solo show @D406

GALLERIA D406 arte contemporanea presenta:
RECIPE FOR A DISASTER

mostra personale di FRANCESCO BARBIERI
Inaugurazione sabato 15 dicembre dalle ore 18
Studio fotografico Rolando Paolo Guerzoni,
via Castel Maraldo 45, Modena
Dal 15 dicembre 2018 al 3 febbraio 2019

Due anni dopo la collettiva “1984. Evoluzione e rigenerazione del writing” presso la Galleria Civica, Francesco Barbieri riporta a Modena le sue città, in grado di evocare un futuro distopico raccontando contemporaneamente una realtà già attuale, con una personale curata dalla galleria D406.
Nello studio del fotografo Rolando Paolo Guerzoni in piazza della Pomposa, viene presentata una selezione di opere che raccontano la poetica dell’artista pisano, che deve al suo passato di graffiti writer la capacità di raccontare la bellezza disperata e la magia “noire” delle metropoli.
I lavori esposti sono eterogenei per tecnica e dimensioni; dalle carte, un must assoluto per la linea curatoriale di D406, alle tele, passando per 4 dipinti della serie che rappresenta l’ultima evoluzione del percorso dell’artista realizzati su stampe fotografiche. Queste opere, presentate a Modena in anteprima assoluta, segnano un cambio di approccio radicale rispetto al passato, perché contestualizzano in modo puntuale le sue città immaginate, nel tempo e nello spazio.
“Ricette per un disastro” non si limita a raccontare una storia generica ed applicabile in ogni parte del mondo, ma è anche un presagio sulla realtà della nostra città, cui le foto di Cinzia Ascari, fanno riferimento.
Ritroviamo così i campi di Vaciglio, Via Morane e Santa Caterina, già scomparsi sulla carta, ma ancora verdissimi nella realtà, “finalmente” stuprati da monolitici monumenti alla folle corsa verso la definitiva disumanizzazione dello spazio pubblico. Opere che non solo ci fanno immaginare, ma ci mostrano vividamente un futuro già segnato, un incubo locale che assume, attraverso la sintesi del suo segno, un valore universale.
