The intersection of graphic gesture with painterly will flows here on a plane of hybridization of the subject matter that enriches its form by transgressing toward a reification of the imaginary that translates into a graphic language that is pure and authoritative.
Lorenzo Marini’s artistic investigation fuses with the clamor of advertising, giving life to a supreme purity that draws its strength from the innate discretion of art and the provocative invasiveness typical of advertising, a field in which Marini has become an icon and a master. The result of this effective addition is a multitude of singularities that represent the first meaning, the original “void”, fount of creation and life. “Typevisual” is the key exhibition of this experience that realizes a linguistic imaginarium, pausing on the identity of each alphabetic letter and accompanying it with notes that fade into the backdrop of the white canvas, almost as if to invite the observer to search for those rare but pregnant clues of an ancient meaning that defines the history of our oral and written communication.
On each letter Marini builds a new graphic definition that describes that subject, often taken for granted, as if it were an artistic portrait. Here the letters become muses that inspire the master Marini, who tells their “personal” stories while supporting his production with a farreaching basic research that taps into both graphics and painting. Marini’s artistic hybridization, of which “Typevisual” is the result, is not therefore a halfart, but a new art that uses the communicative capacity of advertising, the mystic linearity of graphics and the ancient intimacy of painting, conveying the whole to the observer who, standing before the white dimension, rediscovers the language of the self.
