Elly Passerini

Elly Passerini was born in the province of Varese in 1983, grew up in a family that had always been passionate about art, his grandfather was a gallery owner and a passionate collector and in this context he has always breathed the passion for art and love for beauty .

 

After obtaining an artistic diploma, he graduated in decoration at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. Over the years he has experimented and studied various artistic techniques such as illustration, sculpture and painting.

 

It is precisely painting that fascinates her the most, in her journey she has always been fascinated by the material and starts experimenting with materials like plaster, paper, bandages, glues and acrylics.

In his early works he uses very light papers with large amounts of glue and color, obtaining stiffened and heavy sheets but acquiring elasticity and transparency, the designs remain vaguely visible in the worked sheets and glue and paper protect it as if it were a fossil.

With time his pictorial research continues and today on the canvases we find images and patches of color very broad, material and evocative with a continuous and constant poetic and utopian investigation that wants to have a high aesthetic value. The very poetics of the material is the common thread in his work. Currently he is concentrating on a vast series of works entitled "the candies", these are small canvases on which the material assumes a sculptural solidity with a focus on color and form without ever losing the balance on the canvas. The surfaces are bulky and the color becomes shape. The intention is to explore the potential of the material freeing itself from the image but finding meaning and harmony in its very structure. We also find the material abstraction in portraits where the face partially or totally loses the lineament and to a certain extent turns into a mask of intense color, the abstract details on the portrait remain however tangible for density of matter. The very idea of ​​portrait is rethought and elusive faces are suspended outside time and space. The figurative language and the abstract language dialogue sculpting the personality of the subject on the canvas.
