Ascesi in rosso palissandro / Ascend in Rosewood Red
Sarteri – 27,5 x 27,5 cm mixed tecnique on linen, 2013
This is a unique Sarteri’s color study on linen. The linen textiles is naturally dyed dipping it in a water solution of black Tibeti tea from the Sichuan Province warmed by a pinch of precious Sardinian saffron. After being dried in the sun the color modules are hand sprayed on the fabric and again fixed by direct sun exposure. This geometric system of squares shows an imperscrutable code of tones rising their frequencies and contrast to the center. As the tissue texture stands as an essential element to the artwork shaping its presence from the outer world, the Artist unrevels the borders defining the desidered finishing touch.
