The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition Fragments from a chromatic discussion 1990-2005 held at Archivio di Stato in Turin from March 24th to May 3rd, 2006.
The show collects 80 paintings created by the artist from 1990 to 2005 and reproduced in this book. This tells deeply about the artistic personality of Renata Rampazzi through her works in which the tracks of the brush, charged with diluted colour, combine, lose themselves in each other, and belong only to their growth in intensity, opening up to symbiosis, to mutations like all vital and natural events, when they enter into the generational dimension that appears between matter and spirit. We find ourselves before a thin, vaporous painting betraying the pressure exercised on its “skin” by effects of sensible currents of energy, which lays bare vaguely libidinous flashes of memory and is sublimed by phosphorescences of hidden lights.
The book, curated by Marisa Vescovo, also includes a text by the Italian writer Lidia Ravera.
