Luigi Profeta

1 Luigi Profeta.jpg

Luigi Profeta was born in Milan on 13 July 1969. From an early age he developed a natural propensity for art, which led him to try his hand at small wooden constructions from an early age. A reference more to sculpture, than to painting and not surprisingly, his works are a perfect combination of the two arts. Influenced by artists such as Kandinsky, by his geometric and compositional rigor, his works are painstakingly studied and meditated paintings that conceal the soul of the artist among shapes and colors. Luigi Profeta currently lives and works in Cormano, where he paints and manages the Click Art cultural center.

Thus describes Luigi Profeta the critic #Maria Luigia Lattanzi # In him the material, the earth, the saturated air, the smoke, the drippings, the cracks in the wall, the suture thread to close limited, marked and highlighted wounds. Offenses to the earth, to the self, to time to history, out of space, out of the circle to dare, to get out of stereotypes and conditioning, a spatula that adds, solidifies, unites. But also free messages, coming from a not so distant past, ripped up to snatch the secrets to share with resilient men and women. Snapshots, Polaroids of an era when nothing was taken for granted, where the smallest conquest had the bitter taste of a parched mouth, where once you savored the dust you always got up, bruised but straight forward anyway.

So describes Luigi Profeta, the critic #Paolo Levi #. Luigi Profeta's experimentation is built on clear-cut geometries and multi-material surfaces, which divide the space through shapes with precise contours, marked by a specific color or motif. The colors that appear in these works are strong, incisive, combined in many cases with metal plates. His composing is always calibrated, ordered and rational - even when the spaces appear full of thread-like tangles - based on the dialectic between different shapes and substances, on the alternation of geometric shapes (cubes, parallelepipeds, spheres) that emerge in bas-relief and surfaces. flat and monochrome, on which textile elements often play in contrast. Prophet reveals constructive wisdom in the combinations, giving rise to tensions between order and chaos, between instinct and reason, where even words and numbers become the symbolic traces of a laborious and introspective path, which is revealed in the explicitly narrative testimony of his titles. The forms in which his artistic path is declined are reminiscent of the primary architectures of certain toy constructions, even if here nothing suggests a playful intent, much less the discovery of a lost time. It is rather a reconnaissance on the origins of form, and on the purity of Euclidean geometries, explored as a primary source of understanding of the rules that govern the forces of nature, and therefore also as the utopia of a regulatory apparatus on which to order human behavior. Starting from this datum, it becomes clear, on the metaphorical level of the existential warning, the meaning of these works and the communicative potential of their message: the geometric reason that translates into form, material and color, is the Ariadne's thread capable of evade the pitfalls of the labyrinths of the unconscious.
