Painting works

\\"Rust is a veil that forms on something forgotten ... it is important to give new possibilities to things, to people, to trees\\".

Fabio Presti\'s works are made layer by layer, using the backs of old mix tape cases as spatulas. Resins, rust and marble dust cover each layer, always leaving a glimpse of something from the previous level. The supports are attacked in an almost angry way, or diluted gently waiting for the water to flow and make the color take unexpected trajectories. The end result is a constantly changing pictorial space that communicates directly with our most instinctive and hidden emotions.
