Active Writing | 2000 - present
”In theatre the word is doubly glorified: it is written, as in the pages of Homer, but it is also pronounced, as happens between two people at work: there is nothing more beautiful. ”
Pier Paolo Pasolini, Affabulazione,1969
Between the 1910s and the early 1920s of the new millennium, Gini gets to the essentials of his research on writing.
Between pens, feathers and typewriters, between handwriting and typing, the artist finds his (precarious/preclear) balance on the sheet that becomes a page, a part of that dialogue – here only implied – with the dimension of the painting and of the book.
One of the liveliest cycles of this most recent period, Pagine, tickles our natural sympathy for the composed and balanced page of tradition (Manutius, Bodoni, Tallone, etc.), without neglecting the self-referential power of visual poetry.
Multimedia appears as an allusion to the need for total communication, which only the convention of the page as such can fulfill.
The page proves to be the medium of choice for a significant representation, which simultaneously resorts to painting and writing through hands, eyes, mind and heart.
A number of pieces from this period is still available to purchase directly from the artist. Please enquire within to discuss your preferences and needs.
