" Mitosis and aggregations "

...and concentric splotches take shape (and come to life) on fertile grounds, cells that interact whith one another, that reproduce, canvases that appear to communicate with each other, separate parts of a single universal vision. A vision that crosses the canvas from one edge to the other, as the eye accompanies the moments marking it. Plaques of color with quivering edges that turn into blubbles, leaving a pleasant sensation of hypnosis in the eyes. Concave spots with convex edges that erupt drops of reflected light, melting into one another. Or splitting, in a triggered mitosis. A reproduction, a duplication, a multiplication of groups of cells, a genesis that on some canvases seems to spring from a wound, spreading out in fragile effervescences.
- Alessandro Dall'Olio ( from Catalogue Mitosi 2008 ) writer and poet.
