This neologism comes from the term used in computer science for the decomposition and recomposition of the hard disk of the hardware, called "Defrag". The derivation "Defrazioni" is in effect a word that does not exist in the Italian language but that goes well with my idea of art, at this specific moment and these new works. Defragmentation of the surface of the picture and its and recomposition by exploiting the materiality and ductility of the mediums. Sometimes you tear other holes, in a dialogue with the surface itself, where the impetuousness of the first phase is appeased by the methodality of the second. This is in search of the perfect sequence, where there is nothing perfect, after all.

"My paintings were painted using the scale of existence and not the institutional one": so said the great Marck Rotcko, an American painter of Latvian origin (who committed suicide in 1970) and acknowledged father of "Color Field Painting" - painting as " colored field ". Abstract spaces of vibrant color in which there is no trace of human figures, but only total "ecstasy". Tragedy and ecstasy. Art as life. Colors as essential wings for journeys towards absolute emotions. Words and dimensions in which I think Franco Tosi, Bolognese by adoption (but born in Magenta in '62), to whom Marco Sassone's "metroquadro" Gallery dedicates today at the same time, four years after his last solo show in Turin, can be well recognized. two exhibitions with extremely clear and significant titles: one "Insight" hosted in the Galleria in Corso San Maurizio and the other "Inside" in the spaces of the "NH Hotel Santo Stefano" in Via Porta Palatina.Read more...

" Deve sempre ritornare il mattino? Mai non finirà la violenza di ciò che è terrestre? Un nefasto affaccendarsi divora il volo celeste della notte ( ..) E eterna è la durata del sonno. (...) Solo i folli ti disconoscono e ignorano un sonno diverso dall'ombra (...) Non ti sentono nell'aureo fiotto del grappolo, nell'olio prodigioso del mandorlo e nel bruno succo del papavero".

A few blocks north of Art Miami, the large new locale for sister fair CONTEXT Art Miami, also in a bespoke white tent, was heating up as well. The fair, founded in 2012, focuses on emerging and mid-career artists.
Dealer Marco Sassone, owner of Metroquadro Gallery in Turin, was showing, among other works, conceptual photographs by Palestinian artist Steve Sabella, whose work focuses on creating a new reality in the face of conflict. Like other dealers, Sassone noted the overflow and repeat visitors from Art Miami who keep returning to the fair, which he has participated in for the last four years.
This year, CONTEXT included a special focus on galleries from Seoul. Curator Jihyun Cha of Artpark Gallery, which showed work by Joonsung Bae and Yongjin Kim, said a move to CONTEXT from SCOPE satellite fair last year had been motivated partly by the appeal of attracting the Art Miami crowd.
