‘St. Luke tuning his own picture according to its diagonal size’ is my latest mural made at the music school building of Novi di Modena, Italy for Totart festival 2017.

The painting is part of my latest series carrying a personal reflection about the process of making art, the connection between art and its support & framing and, above all, the relationship that occurs between art and the viewer.

The framing of a picture, for instance, can change the whole perspective of what we are seeing and elaborating.
That being said, the same concept could be applied to painting: how an artist manages to frame a subject into a canvas changes dramatically the perception of the finished work.
We also constantly live our lives surrounded by bits and pieces of existence cropped to a certain aspect ratio proper of this or that social network, blog or website, embedded in a process that somehow filters reality as a whole.

Also, art made in the streets doesn’t last forever and there perhaps lies its beauty. We could easily argue that the photo of a mural acts as the natural link to its continuity and it’s what will (physically or more likely digitally) remain of it through time (aside memories, of course).
Materiality of a fragile painting becomes intertwined with its digital parallel and future existence.

The work in Novi features a golden diagonal of the wall played by the figure part of the very same mural and works as a reference to the above mentioned art’s digital life, as we commonly measure the inches of a display using its own diagonal size. So, the edges of the surface on which the work is painted crop its context in the very same way the borders of a monitor do, heavily defining what will be the feelings and the perception about art from a viewer’s perspective.
