Critical comment by Prof. Francesco Chetta Prize of the Critics 2018
A kaleidoscopic painting, rich in creative fantasy, that of our artist Massimo Paracchini, which captures, with deep visual precision and chromatic taste, the curiosity of the admirers of his recent works; it is in particular in the Kromoexpansion series, a well-defined and balanced pictorial research charged with inner energy, that Massimo openly shares the view of his artistic world, sending sensory messages, which are in turn perceived, with neuro perceptions the by the visual organs, that is to say visual impulses deciphered by the modular retinal chromatism, present in the fifth composition of the work . Sometimes his works evoke hidden inner messages, dear to the artist, depicted with formal scene and the right pictorial synthesis, externalized with particular gestures, which gives the painting a valid introspective reading, with pictorial planes of valuable formal composition, dialoguing through his personal inner world, full of silent scenarios taken from his memory.
Title of the selected work: “Free Sprinkling Overflowing and Sparkling on a double Universe and curvilinear movements of thought in Kromotrance”
Mixed technique on canvas with applied folds
Measurements: 100 x 100 cm
Comment of the artist to the selected work
“Let each color freely dance on the white canvas, transmute every image belonging to a mythic Arcadian-Euclidean world, now outdated, in pure contemporary vision crossed by the hyper-elliptical and hyperdimensional geometry of the Universe, by means of a progressive transcendental Kromotrance which suddenly projects every artist into a totally ecstatic dimension thanks to the free and magical komomoalchemic sprinkling that transforms and transfigures everything and which can also achieve, through a spontaneous and decisive Free Sprinkling Overflowing and Sparkling, the final stage of the absolute transatomization of any object represented , thus allowing us to grasp the truest and most profound essence of everything.
From the hyper-elliptical, curvilinear and hyperdimensional movements of the trans-geometry of deep Universes, the new dynamic, abstract, cosmic, eternal form will be generated in a new and pure eidetic and transcendental vision.
Everything can start from a dimensionless wave of luminous energy, flowing and vibrating with endless possibilities; then conscience will make it collapse with observation , transforming it into corpuscular atoms and phenomena, realizing only one of the many possibilities, just like the phenomenon of the Big bang that realized one of the infinite possibilities and possible logics; in the same way the artist realizes only one of the many possible visions.
Yet, as everything may have originated from an adimensional wave of flowing and vibrating energy that was atomised through conscience, everything can return to it through a progressive process of dematerialization, of chromatic disintegration and of transatomization until the primordial Kaos is evoked.”
