Leonardo Pellicanò – Crooked Thoughts Along the Crooked Path
Diploma project by Leonardo Pellicanò
The pieces on display feature a wide range of pictorial expressions, oscillating between narrative figuration and abstraction. They play on archetypes drawn from myth and folklore that come to surface in an intimate language of fragile apparitions. Untitled and Crooked Thoughts Along the Crooked Path are small-scale works on unprepared wood that illustrate the presence of ghostly and eerie narratives. Between the two, there is the big square canvas Lilac Unseen, apparently a monochrome on raw linen, which upon closer inspection reveals many shades of colour, functioning almost as a macro expansion of the smaller works or a fragment of a rarefied landscape.
