roberto cavallera : veroniche (veronicas)* (acrylic paint on panel)

(1997 – )

images from magazines, newspapers, books, and anonymous photographs, have been photocopied, manually transferred on a panel and finally painted. the identity of each portrayed subject is denied. what we see is the simple image of a human being deprived of his biography, his history. what i try to stress out is the formal and emotional values of each portrait. the pictorial intervention on the trace leaved by the photostatic process intends to maintain a remote contact with the reality of the portrayed subjects
