La Baracca

Fausto Melotti

Fausto Melotti was a physicist, mathematician, engineer and musician before visual artist and his work between 1935 and the end of the 1980s was focused on the principles and values of abstraction: counterpoint, harmony, suspension, lightness, precariousness, void. The material used is in fact only whispered; it does not serve to define precise parts or stable and solid elements, instead contributing to creating the idea of a space visited only by minds, a space made up of transparencies and opacity, uncertainties and small instabilities. A new inclination for malleable metals such as brass and poor materials such as fabric scraps, bits of paper and thin metal mesh, favoured the construction of unstable equilibriums of open forms in accordance with free, lyrical cadences and unexpected poetic luminarist vibrations.
